Why Progent Is the Right Choice for Little Rock, Arkansas Small Businesses
Progent's size, scope of information technology expertise, and experience with corporate IT consulting enable small businesses to avoid the problems related to over reliance on thinly staffed service organizations or independent consultants.

Teaming with Progent allows your business to:

  • Prevent Over Dependence on Individual Support Consultants
    For network services, small businesses sometimes depend excessively on individual consultants. Although individual support engineers carry lower overhead than larger support organizations and can afford to charge nominally lower rates, they are frequently spread too thin to respond quickly to critical situations. If a freelance consultant is busy with different client, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may require your company to go without assistance during a crisis. As your company grows, system downtime or problems with line-of-business applications get more expensive. The dollars you believed you were saving on a freelancer can evaporate quickly due to lost productivity. Also, when independent engineers encounter unfamiliar problems, the unavailability of a big engineering team to fall back on for assistance requires them to learn on the job while your organization ends up with the costs for their ongoing training.

  • Have Access to Experts in Complex IT Issues
    Many smaller support firms or freelance consultants focused on small business network consulting may excel at providing routine solutions but lack the seasoning to deal cost-effectively with complicated network environments with mixed operating systems, multiple sites, VoIP implementations, remote workforces, interconnected accounting and operational applications, data-driven web sites, and custom line-of-business applications. Progent's experience with worldwide enterprises and Progent's extensive team of specialists can be valuable to your small business because enterprise environments are inherently complex, support issues demand in-depth knowledge in many technical disciplines, and achieving an acceptable level of stability, reliability, and protection calls for industry-proven leading practices.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
    Small companies typically start with a network cobbled together on a tight budget. Without a strong architecture, a series of improvised repairs commonly get thrown onto of a marginal foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can undermine the success of the organization. Such environments need thorough assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that will act as the reliable foundation to handle current business requirements and ease future expansion.

  • Team with Solution Providers, Not Product Vendors
    Smaller businesses need guidance and insight to navigate through an increasingly complex array of technology options available for accelerating growth and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need an IT consultant or service organization that attempts to promote a product. Progent eliminates conflicts of interest by not reselling any products. Progent provides services exclusively. This permits Progent to align technical support services with the real needs of clients. Mixing IT consulting and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is built around a preselected vendor instead of being driven by the true needs of a client.
