Why Progent Is the Smart Alternative for Springfield, Illinois Small Businesses
Progent's size, depth of technical skill, and experience with enterprise IT support enable small companies to sidestep the pitfalls related to excessive reliance on small service organizations or independent engineers.

Teaming with Progent allows your business to:

  • Avoid Over Dependence on Individual Support Consultants
    For IT support, small companies often depend excessively on individual engineers. Though individual service providers carry lower overhead than larger IT service organizations and can typically bill apparently lower fees, they are often too overworked to react rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, sick, on vacation, or in class, the lack of replacement staff may force your business to go without help during a crisis. As your small business expands, system downtime or problems with line-of-business programs become more costly. The dollars you thought you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly due to lost productivity. Also, when independent consultants confront unfamiliar problems, the unavailability of a large engineering team to rely on for assistance requires them to learn in place while your business winds up footing the costs for their continuing education.

  • Gain Access to Certified Professionals in Sophisticated Network Issues
    The majority of small service firms or independent consultants specializing in small business IT consulting are capable of delivering routine solutions but don't have the experience to work efficiently with complicated IT environments with mixed platforms, numerous sites, VoIP systems, remote workforces, interconnected financial and operational applications, eCommerce, and specialized business software. Progent's background with global enterprises and Progent's extensive group of specialists can benefit your company because enterprise environments are characteristically complex, integration problems demand in-depth understanding of in many technical areas, and reaching a high degree of robustness, availability, and security calls for enterprise-tested leading practices.

  • Build a Firm Foundation for Growth
    Small businesses typically begin with a network implemented on a tight budget. Lacking a proper basis, a sequence of band-aid fixes often get piled on top of a weak foundation. As a company evolves, reliability and scalability problems can obstruct the success of the organization. These environments need thorough assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can provide the solid foundation to meet current business needs and ease downstream growth.

  • Partner with Solution Consultants, Not Resellers
    Small companies need guidance and insight to navigate through an increasingly complicated maze of technology options offered for accelerating business growth and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a network engineer or service organization that attempts to sell them products. Progent eliminates conflicts of interest by not selling hardware and software. Progent provides consulting and services only. This permits Progent to align consulting support services with the genuine needs of customers. Combining network consulting and product reselling can lead to a conflict where the recommended solution is built around a preselected technology rather than being based on the true needs of a customer.
