Why Progent Is the Right Choice for Simi Valley, California Small Businesses
Progent's size, scope of technical expertise, and familiarity with corporate network support enable small companies to sidestep the problems related to excessive reliance on small service organizations or individual engineers.

Working with Progent enables your small business to:

  • Prevent Over Dependence on Freelance Support Consultants
    For network support, smaller companies often depend excessively on freelance consultants. Though freelance support providers have lower expenses than larger support organizations and can afford to bill nominally lower fees, individuals are frequently too busy to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance engineer is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of replacement staff may require your business to go without assistance during an emergency. As your company grows, network downtime or problems with line-of-business programs get more expensive. The dollars you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can disappear quickly due to lower productivity. Also, when independent engineers encounter unfamiliar technologies, the unavailability of a large consulting team to rely on for help forces them to train with the meter running while your organization winds up footing the costs for their continuing education.

  • Have Access to Experts in Advanced Information Technology Issues
    The majority of smaller support firms or independent consultants focused on small business network support are capable of delivering routine fixes but don't have the background to work cost-effectively with complicated IT environments with a variety of platforms, many offices, Voice over IP systems, mobile clients, interconnected accounting and analytical applications, eCommerce, and custom business software. Progent's background with global companies and Progent's large staff of experts can benefit your small business because enterprise networks are by nature complex, support issues demand thorough knowledge in many technical areas, and achieving an acceptable degree of stability, availability, and protection calls for enterprise-proven leading practices.

  • Create a Firm Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Small businesses typically begin with an IT system cobbled together on a shoestring budget. Without a strong architecture, a series of ad hoc fixes commonly get piled onto of a marginal structure. As a business evolves, reliability and expandability issues can obstruct the productivity of the business. These networks need thorough evaluation, intelligent business analysis, and broad-based experience to migrate to an IT environment that will provide the reliable foundation to meet critical business needs and ease future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Finders, Not Product Resellers
    Smaller companies need guidance and education to work through an ever more complicated maze of technology options offered for enabling growth and improving efficiency. They do not need an IT engineer or service organization that tries to sell them products. Progent avoids conflicted motives by not reselling any products. Progent provides services only. This permits Progent to align technical services with the genuine needs of customers. Combining network consulting and product reselling can lead to a conflict where the proposed solution is built around a preselected vendor instead of being based on the actual requirements of a customer.
