Why Progent Is the Smart Choice for Portsmouth, Virginia Small Businesses
Progent's staff size, depth of information technology skill, and familiarity with corporate IT support allow small and midsize businesses to sidestep the pitfalls associated with over dependence on small support organizations or individual engineers.

Teaming with Progent allows your company to:

  • Avoid Excessive Reliance on Freelance Support Consultants
    For network services, smaller companies often rely heavily on individual consultants. Though individual support engineers have lower overhead than more substantial IT service organizations and can afford to bill apparently smaller fees, freelancers are frequently too busy to respond rapidly to critical situations. If a freelance engineer is busy with different client, ill, on travelling, or in class, the absence of backup personnel may force your business to wait for assistance in case of an emergency. As your company expands, system downtime or problems with line-of-business programs become more expensive. The money you believed you were conserving on an independent consultant can disappear fast because of lower output. In addition, when independent engineers confront new technologies, the unavailability of a big engineering group to fall back on for advice forces them to train on the job while your company winds up with the costs for their continuing education.

  • Gain Access to Certified Professionals in Advanced Network Solutions
    Many smaller support organizations or freelance engineers focused on small business network support are capable of delivering routine solutions but lack the background to deal efficiently with complicated IT environments that have mixed platforms, many sites, VoIP systems, mobile workers, integrated accounting and analytical software, eCommerce, and specialized line-of-business applications. Progent's background with worldwide companies and Progent's extensive team of experts can be valuable to your small business because enterprise environments are by nature complicated, support issues require in-depth knowledge in many technical disciplines, and achieving a high degree of stability, availability, and protection requires enterprise-tested best practices.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Growth
    Small businesses typically start with a network cobbled together on a tight budget. Without a carefully designed basis, a series of band-aid repairs commonly get tossed onto of a marginal foundation. As a company evolves, stability and expandability problems can obstruct the productivity of the business. Such networks need proper assessment, smart strategic planning, and in-depth experience to upgrade to an IT environment that can act as the solid basis to handle current business needs and support downstream expansion.

  • Work with Solution Finders, Not Product Vendors
    Small businesses require direction and insight to work through an ever more complicated maze of technology options offered for enabling business growth and improving efficiency. They do not need an IT engineer or service organization that tries to promote products. Progent avoids conflicts of interest by not selling hardware and software. Progent offers consulting and services only. This permits Progent to match technical support with the genuine interests of customers. Mixing IT support and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is based on a predetermined vendor rather than being driven by the true requirements of a customer.
