Why Progent Is the Right Alternative for Salem, Oregon Small Businesses
Progent's staff size, breadth and depth of technical expertise, and familiarity with corporate network support allow small companies to sidestep the pitfalls related to excessive dependence on thinly staffed service firms or freelance engineers.

Teaming with Progent's Experts enables your small business to:

  • Prevent Excessive Dependence on Freelance Support Consultants
    For IT support, small companies sometimes depend heavily on individual consultants. Although individual service engineers have lower expenses than larger support organizations and can typically bill apparently lower fees, they are often stretched to far to react quickly to urgent network problems. If a freelance engineer is occupied with another customer, ill, on vacation, or in class, the lack of backup staff may require your company to go without help in case of an emergency. The more your small business grows, network downtime or problems with critical programs get more costly. The dollars you thought you were saving on a freelancer can evaporate fast because of lost productivity. In addition, when independent engineers confront new problems, the lack of a big consulting group to fall back on for advice requires them to train with the meter running while your organization ends up footing the costs for their ongoing education.

  • Have Access to Certified Professionals in Sophisticated Network Solutions
    The majority of smaller service firms or freelance consultants who concentrate on small company IT consulting may excel at providing routine fixes but lack the seasoning to deal efficiently with complicated network environments with mixed operating systems, multiple sites, VoIP implementations, mobile workforces, integrated accounting and analytical applications, eCommerce, and custom line-of-business software. Progent's background with global enterprises and Progent's large staff of experts can be valuable to your small business because big-company environments are characteristically complex, integration issues require in-depth understanding of in numerous technical disciplines, and reaching an acceptable level of stability, availability, and protection calls for enterprise-tested leading practices.

  • Build a Firm Basis for Growth
    Small businesses often start with a network cobbled together on a tight budget. Lacking a carefully designed basis, a series of band-aid repairs often get piled onto of a marginal foundation. As a business evolves, reliability and scalability problems can hinder the productivity of the business. These networks require thorough evaluation, intelligent strategic analysis, and broad-based experience to migrate to a network infrastructure that can provide the reliable basis to meet critical business requirements and support future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Consultants, Not Product Resellers
    Small companies require guidance and insight to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology alternatives offered for enabling growth and enhancing productivity. Businesses do not need an IT consultant or support organization that tries to promote a product. Progent eliminates conflicts of interest by not reselling hardware and software. Progent sells services and expertise only. This allows Progent to align technical support services with the real interests of customers. Mixing network support and product reselling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is based on a preselected vendor rather than being driven by the actual needs of a small business.
