Why Progent Is the Right Choice for Lansing, Michigan Businesses
Progent's staff size, breadth of information technology expertise, and familiarity with enterprise network support allow small and midsize companies to sidestep the problems related to over reliance on thinly staffed support organizations or independent engineers.

Working with Progent allows your company to:

  • Avoid Excessive Reliance on Freelance Support Consultants
    For IT support, small businesses sometimes depend heavily on independent engineers. Although individual support engineers carry lower overhead than larger support organizations and can typically bill nominally lower fees, individuals are occasionally stretched to far to respond quickly to critical problems. If an independent consultant is occupied with different customer, ill, on vacation, or in training, the absence of replacement staff may force your business to go without help in case of a crisis. The more your company grows, network unavailability or difficulties with line-of-business applications become more costly. The money you believed you were saving on a freelancer can evaporate quickly because of lost output. In addition, when freelance consultants confront new problems, the lack of a large consulting group to rely on for assistance forces them to learn with the meter running while your organization ends up footing the bill for their continuing training.

  • Have Access to Expertise in Sophisticated Information Technology Solutions
    Many smaller service firms or independent consultants who concentrate on small company network consulting are capable of delivering connect-the-dots solutions but don't have the experience to work cost-effectively with complex IT infrastructures with a variety of platforms, multiple offices, VoIP systems, remote clients, integrated accounting and analytical applications, data-driven web sites, and custom business software. Progent's background with global companies and Progent's extensive group of specialists can benefit your small business because enterprise networks are characteristically complicated, integration issues demand in-depth understanding of in many technical disciplines, and reaching a high degree of stability, availability, and protection requires enterprise-tested processes.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
    Small businesses often begin with a network cobbled together on a shoestring budget. Lacking a solid basis, a series of improvised fixes commonly get tossed on top of a marginal structure. As a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can obstruct the success of the business. Such networks need proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and in-depth experience to upgrade to an IT infrastructure that can act as the reliable basis to meet current business requirements and ease future growth.

  • Work with Solution Finders, Not Product Resellers
    Small businesses require guidance and education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology alternatives offered for enabling growth and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a network engineer or support organization that attempts to sell them products. Progent avoids conflicted motives by not reselling hardware and software. Progent provides services and expertise exclusively. This permits Progent to match consulting support with the genuine needs of customers. Combining network support and product reselling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is based on a preselected vendor instead of being based on the true needs of a small business.
