Expert Online Help for Norman, Oklahoma Small Business Computers from Certified Engineers
Small businesses have traditionally been underserved by major IT support organizations. Some small companies permit themselves to become dangerously dependent on individual engineers or small consulting organizations who lack the bandwidth or broad knowledge to respond promptly or efficiently to network emergencies. Still other small businesses turn to giant service providers that employ personnel trained to offer standardized fixes for common problems but who are missing the background and technical scope to deal with the diversity of configurations and lack of standardization that characterizes small company IT networks.

Why Progent Is the Smart Choice for Norman, Oklahoma Small Businesses
Progent's staff size, breadth of information technology skill, and familiarity with enterprise network support enable small and midsize businesses to avoid the problems related to over reliance on thinly staffed service firms or individual consultants.

Working with Progent enables your business to:

  • Prevent Excessive Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For network services, small businesses often rely excessively on individual consultants. Though freelance service providers carry lower overhead than more substantial support organizations and can afford to charge nominally smaller rates, freelancers are often spread too thin to react rapidly to urgent network problems. If an independent engineer is busy with another client, ill, on vacation, or in class, the absence of backup personnel may force your business to wait for help during a crisis. As your small business grows, network unavailability or problems with critical applications get more expensive. The dollars you believed you were saving on a freelancer can disappear quickly due to lost output. Also, when freelance engineers encounter unfamiliar problems, the lack of a large engineering team to depend on for assistance requires them to learn in place while your organization ends up with the costs for their continuing education.

  • Gain Access to Experts in Complex Information Technology Solutions
    The majority of smaller support firms or independent engineers specializing in small business network support are capable of delivering connect-the-dots fixes but don't have the seasoning to work cost-effectively with complicated IT infrastructures with mixed operating systems, many locations, VoIP implementations, mobile clients, interconnected financial and analytical applications, data-driven web sites, and custom business software. Progent's background with global enterprises and Progent's extensive staff of experts can benefit your business because enterprise environments are characteristically complex, support problems demand thorough understanding of in many technical areas, and achieving a high level of robustness, reliability, and protection calls for industry-tested best practices.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Small businesses often start with a network cobbled together on a tight budget. Lacking a carefully designed basis, a sequence of band-aid repairs commonly get tossed on top of a weak foundation. As a business grows, stability and expandability issues can hinder the success of the business. These environments require proper evaluation, intelligent strategic analysis, and broad-based experience to upgrade to a network infrastructure that will provide the solid basis to handle current business needs and support downstream expansion.

  • Partner with Solution Consultants, Not Resellers
    Small companies require direction and education to work through an increasingly complex maze of technology options available for enabling growth and improving efficiency. They do not need an IT consultant or service organization that attempts to promote a product. Progent eliminates conflicts of interest by not selling hardware and software. Progent provides consulting and services exclusively. This allows Progent to match consulting services with the genuine needs of clients. Mixing IT support and product selling can result in a situation where the proposed solution is based on a predetermined vendor instead of being based on the actual needs of a customer.
