Why Progent Offers the Smart Choice for Pasadena, Texas Small Businesses
Progent's size, breadth and depth of information technology skill, and familiarity with enterprise IT consulting allow small companies to sidestep the pitfalls related to over reliance on small service organizations or individual consultants.

Working with Progent enables your company to:

  • Avoid Excessive Reliance on Individual Support Consultants
    For network support, small businesses often rely excessively on individual consultants. Though freelance service engineers carry lower overhead than larger IT service firms and can typically charge nominally smaller rates, freelancers are sometimes too busy to react rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance engineer is occupied with different customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the absence of replacement personnel may require your company to wait for help during a crisis. As your small business expands, network downtime or difficulties with line-of-business applications get more expensive. The dollars you thought you were conserving on an independent consultant can be eaten up fast due to lower productivity. In addition, when independent engineers encounter new problems, the unavailability of a big engineering team to fall back on for assistance requires them to learn on the job while your business ends up with the costs for their ongoing training.

  • Gain Access to Certified Professionals in Complex Information Technology Issues
    Many smaller service organizations or freelance consultants who concentrate on small business network consulting are capable of providing connect-the-dots solutions but lack the experience to deal cost-effectively with complex IT configurations that have a variety of operating systems, numerous locations, VoIP systems, remote clients, integrated accounting and operational software, eCommerce, and custom line-of-business software. Progent's experience with worldwide enterprises and Progent's large staff of specialists can benefit your small business because big-company environments are by nature complicated, support issues demand thorough understanding of in many technical areas, and reaching a high degree of stability, availability, and security requires industry-proven best practices.

  • Create a Solid Foundation for Growth
    Small businesses often begin with an IT system cobbled together on a shoestring budget. Lacking a strong architecture, a sequence of improvised fixes often get thrown onto of a weak structure. As a company grows, stability and expandability issues can obstruct the success of the organization. Such environments need proper evaluation, intelligent business planning, and broad-based expertise to migrate to an IT infrastructure that can provide the reliable foundation to handle critical business needs and support future growth.

  • Team with Solution Consultants, Not Product Resellers
    Smaller companies need guidance and education to work through an ever more complicated maze of technology alternatives offered for accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a network consultant or service firm that tries to promote a product. Progent eliminates conflicted motives by not reselling hardware and software. Progent offers consulting and services exclusively. This permits Progent to align technical support with the real needs of customers. Mixing IT consulting and product reselling can lead to a conflict where the proposed solution is based on a preselected vendor instead of being based on the actual requirements of a small business.
