Why Progent Offers the Smart Choice for Reno, Nevada Small Businesses
Progent's size, breadth and depth of information technology skill, and experience with enterprise IT consulting enable small and midsize businesses to sidestep the pitfalls related to excessive dependence on small support firms or independent consultants.

Teaming with Progent's Experts allows your company to:

  • Prevent Excessive Dependence on Individual Support Consultants
    For network services, smaller businesses often depend excessively on freelance engineers. Though freelance service engineers have lower overhead than larger support organizations and can afford to bill apparently lower fees, they are occasionally too busy to react quickly to critical situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with different customer, sick, on travelling, or in training, the lack of replacement personnel may force your business to wait for assistance in case of an emergency. The more your company grows, system unavailability or problems with line-of-business applications get more expensive. The money you believed you were conserving on an independent consultant can disappear fast because of lower output. Also, when freelance consultants confront new problems, the lack of a large consulting group to depend on for assistance requires them to learn with the meter running while your business ends up footing the bill for their ongoing education.

  • Gain Access to Experts in Complex Information Technology Solutions
    The majority of smaller service organizations or freelance engineers specializing in small company network support are capable of delivering routine fixes but don't have the background to work cost-effectively with complex IT environments with mixed platforms, multiple sites, Voice over IP systems, remote workers, interconnected accounting and operational software, eCommerce, and specialized line-of-business software. Progent's experience with worldwide companies and Progent's large team of experts can be valuable to your company because big-company networks are inherently complicated, integration problems require in-depth understanding of in many technical disciplines, and reaching an acceptable level of robustness, availability, and security requires enterprise-tested best practices.

  • Create a Firm Foundation for Growth
    Small businesses often begin with a network cobbled together on a tight budget. Lacking a strong architecture, a sequence of band-aid fixes often get piled on top of a tenuous foundation. As a company evolves, stability and scalability issues can obstruct the success of the business. These environments require thorough assessment, intelligent business analysis, and in-depth experience to migrate to an IT infrastructure that will act as the reliable foundation to handle critical business requirements and ease future growth.

  • Team with Solution Finders, Not Resellers
    Smaller businesses need guidance and education to work through an ever more complex array of technology options offered for accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need an IT consultant or service firm that attempts to sell them products. Progent eliminates conflicted motives by not reselling hardware and software. Progent sells consulting and services only. This permits Progent to align technical support with the real needs of clients. Mixing IT support and product selling can result in a situation where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of being based on the actual requirements of a client.
