Why Progent Is the Smart Alternative for Simi Valley, California Businesses
Progent's size, breadth of information technology expertise, and familiarity with corporate network support allow small companies to avoid the pitfalls related to over reliance on small service organizations or independent engineers.

Working with Progent's Experts allows your business to:

  • Avoid Excessive Reliance on Individual Consultants
    For IT support, smaller businesses sometimes depend excessively on independent consultants. Although freelance support engineers have lower overhead than larger support firms and can afford to bill apparently lower fees, they are often too busy to react rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with different client, ill, on vacation, or in class, the absence of replacement staff may force your company to wait for help in case of an emergency. The more your company grows, network unavailability or difficulties with line-of-business applications become more expensive. The money you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can evaporate quickly due to lost output. Also, when freelance engineers confront unfamiliar technologies, the lack of a big engineering group to rely on for help requires them to train in place while your business winds up with the bill for their continuing training.

  • Gain Access to Experts in Advanced Network Issues
    The majority of small service organizations or freelance engineers who concentrate on small business network consulting may excel at providing connect-the-dots solutions but don't have the background to deal cost-effectively with complex network configurations with mixed platforms, many offices, VoIP systems, remote clients, integrated accounting and operational software, eCommerce, and custom business software. Progent's experience with worldwide companies and Progent's large group of experts can be valuable to your small business because enterprise networks are characteristically complicated, integration problems require in-depth understanding of in numerous technical areas, and reaching an acceptable degree of stability, reliability, and protection requires industry-tested leading practices.

  • Create a Firm Foundation for Growth
    Small businesses typically begin with a network cobbled together on a shoestring budget. Lacking a solid architecture, a series of band-aid repairs commonly get tossed onto of a weak foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability problems can obstruct the success of the organization. Such networks require thorough evaluation, smart business planning, and broad-based expertise to migrate to a network infrastructure that will act as the solid foundation to meet critical business requirements and support downstream growth.

  • Work with Solution Consultants, Not Product Vendors
    Smaller businesses need direction and insight to work through an ever more complex maze of technology options available for enabling growth and enhancing productivity. Businesses do not need an IT consultant or support organization that tries to sell them a product. Progent avoids conflicts of interest by not reselling any products. Progent provides services exclusively. This allows Progent to match technical support services with the real interests of customers. Mixing IT consulting and product selling can lead to a conflict where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined vendor rather than being based on the true requirements of a small business.
