Why Progent Is the Right Alternative for Norwalk, California Small Businesses
Progent's staff size, breadth and depth of technical expertise, and familiarity with enterprise IT support enable small businesses to sidestep the pitfalls associated with excessive dependence on thinly staffed service firms or independent engineers.

Working with Progent enables your small business to:

  • Avoid Over Dependence on Individual Support Consultants
    For IT support, small businesses often rely excessively on individual consultants. Though individual service engineers have lower expenses than larger IT service organizations and can afford to bill apparently smaller fees, individuals are sometimes stretched to far to respond rapidly to urgent problems. If a freelance consultant is occupied with different client, ill, on vacation, or in class, the lack of backup personnel may force your company to go without help in case of a crisis. The more your company grows, network downtime or difficulties with critical applications get more expensive. The dollars you believed you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly due to lost productivity. Also, when freelance consultants encounter unfamiliar problems, the unavailability of a big engineering team to rely on for advice requires them to train with the meter running while your organization winds up footing the bill for their ongoing education.

  • Have Access to Experts in Advanced Information Technology Solutions
    The majority of smaller support firms or independent engineers focused on small business IT consulting are capable of providing routine fixes but don't have the seasoning to work efficiently with complex IT configurations that have a variety of platforms, many sites, VoIP implementations, mobile clients, integrated financial and operational applications, data-driven web sites, and specialized line-of-business software. Progent's background with worldwide companies and Progent's extensive staff of experts can be valuable to your company because enterprise environments are inherently complex, integration problems demand thorough knowledge in numerous technical disciplines, and achieving a high level of robustness, reliability, and security calls for enterprise-tested best practices.

  • Create a Firm Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Small businesses often start with a network implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a proper basis, a series of band-aid repairs commonly get tossed onto of a marginal structure. As a company evolves, reliability and expandability issues can undermine the success of the business. Such environments need thorough assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and in-depth experience to migrate to a network infrastructure that will provide the reliable basis to handle critical business requirements and support downstream expansion.

  • Partner with Solution Providers, Not Product Resellers
    Small businesses need direction and education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology alternatives available for accelerating growth and enhancing productivity. They do not need an IT consultant or support organization that tries to sell them products. Progent avoids conflicted motives by not selling hardware and software. Progent offers services and expertise only. This allows Progent to match technical services with the genuine needs of clients. Mixing IT support and product reselling can result in a situation where the recommended solution is built around a preselected vendor instead of being driven by the true requirements of a customer.
