Why Progent Offers the Right Choice for Rockford, Illinois Small Businesses
Progent's staff size, scope of technical skill, and experience with enterprise IT consulting enable small businesses to avoid the pitfalls related to over reliance on thinly staffed support organizations or independent engineers.

Teaming with Progent's Experts allows your business to:

  • Prevent Over Reliance on Freelance Support Consultants
    For network services, small companies often depend heavily on individual engineers. Although individual service providers have lower expenses than more substantial support organizations and can typically bill apparently smaller fees, they are frequently too busy to respond quickly to critical problems. If a freelance engineer is busy with different client, sick, on travelling, or in training, the absence of replacement staff may require your company to go without help in case of an emergency. The more your company grows, network unavailability or difficulties with critical programs become more costly. The dollars you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can disappear fast due to lost output. Also, when independent engineers confront new problems, the lack of a big engineering group to depend on for help requires them to train with the meter running while your business ends up with the bill for their continuing education.

  • Gain Access to Certified Professionals in Sophisticated IT Solutions
    Many small support firms or freelance consultants who concentrate on small business IT support may excel at providing routine solutions but lack the background to work cost-effectively with complicated network infrastructures with mixed platforms, many sites, Voice over IP implementations, remote workforces, interconnected financial and analytical applications, data-driven web sites, and specialized line-of-business software. Progent's background with worldwide companies and Progent's extensive group of experts can be valuable to your company because enterprise environments are by nature complicated, support problems require thorough knowledge in numerous technical areas, and achieving a high level of stability, reliability, and security calls for enterprise-proven leading practices.

  • Build a Solid Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Small companies typically begin with a network implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a solid architecture, a series of ad hoc repairs often get tossed onto of a tenuous foundation. As a company grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the business. Such networks need proper evaluation, intelligent business planning, and in-depth experience to migrate to an IT infrastructure that will act as the reliable foundation to handle critical business needs and ease future growth.

  • Partner with Solution Consultants, Not Resellers
    Smaller businesses need guidance and education to navigate through an ever more complicated array of technology options offered for accelerating business growth and enhancing productivity. Businesses do not need an IT engineer or support organization that attempts to sell them a product. Progent avoids conflicted motives by not reselling any products. Progent provides consulting and services only. This allows Progent to align technical services with the genuine needs of clients. Combining network consulting and product reselling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is built around a preselected technology rather than being based on the actual needs of a client.
