Why Progent Is the Right Alternative for Memphis, Tennessee Small Businesses
Progent's size, depth of information technology expertise, and familiarity with corporate IT consulting enable small companies to sidestep the pitfalls related to excessive dependence on small support firms or independent engineers.

Teaming with Progent's Experts enables your business to:

  • Prevent Excessive Reliance on Freelance Support Consultants
    For IT support, smaller companies often depend excessively on freelance engineers. Though freelance service engineers carry lower overhead than larger IT service firms and can afford to bill nominally lower fees, they are occasionally unable to respond quickly to urgent problems. If an independent engineer is busy with another client, sick, on travelling, or in training, the absence of replacement personnel may force your business to go without assistance during a crisis. The more your small business grows, network unavailability or problems with critical applications become more costly. The dollars you believed you were conserving on an independent consultant can evaporate quickly because of lost productivity. In addition, when independent consultants encounter new problems, the unavailability of a large consulting group to depend on for advice requires them to train in place while your company ends up with the costs for their ongoing training.

  • Gain Access to Experts in Complex IT Solutions
    Many small service organizations or independent consultants focused on small business network consulting may excel at delivering routine fixes but lack the experience to work cost-effectively with complex IT configurations that have mixed platforms, multiple sites, VoIP systems, remote clients, interconnected accounting and analytical applications, eCommerce, and specialized line-of-business software. Progent's background with global companies and Progent's extensive team of experts can be valuable to your business because big-company networks are by nature complicated, support problems demand in-depth understanding of in many technical areas, and achieving a high degree of stability, availability, and security calls for enterprise-tested processes.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Small companies typically begin with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a carefully designed basis, a series of band-aid repairs often get piled on top of a marginal foundation. As a business evolves, stability and expandability problems can undermine the success of the organization. These environments need proper evaluation, intelligent business planning, and in-depth expertise to migrate to an IT environment that can provide the reliable foundation to handle critical business requirements and support downstream expansion.

  • Team with Solution Finders, Not Resellers
    Smaller businesses require direction and insight to work through an ever more complex array of technology alternatives available for enabling business growth and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need an IT consultant or support organization that tries to promote a product. Progent eliminates conflicted motives by not reselling any products. Progent provides consulting and services only. This allows Progent to align consulting support services with the real needs of clients. Mixing network support and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than being driven by the actual needs of a customer.
