Why Progent Is the Smart Alternative for McAllen, Texas Businesses
Progent's size, breadth of technical skill, and experience with enterprise IT support allow small companies to avoid the pitfalls related to over dependence on thinly staffed service organizations or individual engineers.

Teaming with Progent allows your company to:

  • Prevent Excessive Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network support, smaller companies sometimes rely heavily on individual engineers. Although freelance support engineers have lower overhead than larger support firms and can typically charge nominally lower rates, they are frequently too busy to react quickly to critical network problems. If an independent engineer is busy with different customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the lack of backup staff may force your company to go without help in case of an emergency. The more your company grows, network downtime or problems with critical programs get more expensive. The money you believed you were saving on an independent consultant can disappear fast due to lost productivity. In addition, when independent engineers encounter unfamiliar technologies, the lack of a big engineering team to depend on for advice requires them to learn with the meter running while your organization ends up footing the costs for their continuing training.

  • Gain Access to Experts in Complex Information Technology Issues
    Many small service firms or independent engineers who concentrate on small company network support may excel at delivering connect-the-dots solutions but don't have the background to deal cost-effectively with complex IT configurations with a variety of platforms, many sites, VoIP implementations, remote workforces, integrated accounting and operational software, eCommerce, and custom line-of-business software. Progent's experience with global enterprises and Progent's large staff of experts can be valuable to your business because big-company networks are by nature complicated, integration issues demand thorough understanding of in many technical areas, and reaching an acceptable level of robustness, availability, and protection calls for enterprise-proven best practices.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Growth
    Small companies often begin with an IT system implemented on a tight budget. Lacking a proper architecture, a series of band-aid fixes commonly get piled onto of a marginal structure. As a business grows, stability and scalability problems can obstruct the productivity of the business. Such networks require thorough evaluation, smart business planning, and broad-based expertise to upgrade to an IT infrastructure that can act as the reliable foundation to handle current business requirements and ease future growth.

  • Work with Solution Providers, Not Product Resellers
    Small businesses require guidance and insight to navigate through an increasingly complicated array of technology options available for enabling business growth and enhancing productivity. They do not need a network engineer or service firm that tries to promote a product. Progent avoids conflicted motives by not reselling any products. Progent sells services and expertise exclusively. This permits Progent to match technical support services with the real needs of clients. Mixing IT consulting and product reselling can lead to a conflict where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of being based on the actual requirements of a client.
