  • Private Cloud Hosting Services
    Progent's Private Cloud hosting offers full hosting services for all of a small or midsize organization's servers in a setting that not only delivers the top degree of fault-tolerance and expandability but that is also simple for clients to transfer to another service provider or to bring internally if your situation calls for it. Progent's Private Cloud hosting is based on tested virtualization technologies that permit companies with mixed networks to save dramatically on the expense of hardware, system maintenance, and network management while achieving enterprise-class reliability and an unprecedented level of vendor options. In contrast to conventional Software as a Service (SaaS) hosting models, Progent's Private Cloud Hosting Service covers all server-centric software in one centrally administered solution, can support the mixed- OS and loosely standardized environments common with small businesses, and keeps control of the software in the client's possession so that moving to a new virtual system is quick, safe, and inexpensive.

Why Progent Offers the Right Choice for Pleasanton, California Small Businesses
Progent's staff size, breadth and depth of information technology skill, and familiarity with corporate network consulting allow small companies to sidestep the pitfalls related to over dependence on thinly staffed support organizations or individual consultants.

Teaming with Progent enables your company to:

  • Avoid Over Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For network support, smaller businesses often depend heavily on independent engineers. Although individual support engineers carry lower expenses than larger support organizations and can typically charge nominally lower rates, individuals are frequently stretched to far to react rapidly to critical network problems. If a freelance engineer is busy with different client, ill, on travelling, or in training, the lack of backup staff may require your company to go without assistance in case of an emergency. The more your company grows, system downtime or problems with line-of-business applications become more costly. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up fast due to lost output. Also, when independent consultants confront new technologies, the unavailability of a large consulting group to count on for advice requires them to train with the meter running while your business ends up with the bill for their ongoing training.

  • Gain Access to Experts in Complex Information Technology Solutions
    The majority of small support firms or freelance consultants who concentrate on small company network support are capable of delivering connect-the-dots solutions but lack the seasoning to work efficiently with complex network infrastructures that have mixed platforms, multiple offices, VoIP systems, remote workforces, interconnected financial and analytical software, data-driven web sites, and custom line-of-business software. Progent's experience with worldwide companies and Progent's large group of specialists can be valuable to your small business because enterprise networks are inherently complex, support problems demand in-depth knowledge in many technical disciplines, and reaching a high degree of stability, availability, and security calls for industry-tested leading practices.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Growth
    Small businesses often begin with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a strong basis, a series of ad hoc repairs commonly get tossed on top of a tenuous structure. As a business evolves, reliability and scalability issues can obstruct the success of the business. Such networks need proper assessment, intelligent strategic analysis, and broad-based expertise to migrate to a network environment that can provide the solid foundation to meet current business requirements and support downstream expansion.

  • Team with Solution Providers, Not Resellers
    Small companies need direction and insight to work through an ever more complex maze of technology options offered for accelerating business growth and improving productivity. They do not need an IT consultant or support organization that tries to sell them products. Progent eliminates conflicted motives by not selling hardware and software. Progent sells services only. This allows Progent to align consulting support services with the real needs of customers. Mixing IT consulting and product selling can result in a conflict where the recommended solution is based on a predetermined technology rather than being based on the actual needs of a customer.
