Cost-effective Support Solutions
Many small businesses utilize flawed metrics when shopping for a computer network consultant. Cost per hour is usually not a reliable measure for value. A consultant with insufficient technical background can take several times longer to complete the identical task than a seasoned Information Technology expert. For example, charging a third less per hour, but taking three times longer for the same task is not a bargain. Even worse, a poorly designed or configured network infrastructure that is unreliable and difficult to administer or expand can cost a business many times more than its initial price because of lost productivity. Progent's customer testimonials from satisfied companies throughout the U.S. indicate the effectiveness of Progent's service model and the technical capability of Progent's staff of engineers.
