Why Progent Offers the Right Choice for Springfield, Illinois Small Businesses
Progent's staff size, scope of information technology skill, and experience with corporate network support enable small and midsize companies to avoid the pitfalls related to over dependence on small service organizations or individual engineers.

Working with Progent's Experts enables your company to:

  • Prevent Excessive Reliance on Freelance Support Consultants
    For network services, smaller companies sometimes depend excessively on independent engineers. Although individual service providers have lower expenses than more substantial support organizations and can typically bill apparently lower fees, they are often stretched to far to respond rapidly to critical network problems. If an independent engineer is occupied with another client, sick, on travelling, or in class, the lack of replacement personnel may require your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your small business grows, network downtime or problems with line-of-business programs get more expensive. The money you thought you were saving on an independent consultant can disappear quickly due to lost productivity. Also, when freelance engineers encounter new problems, the unavailability of a large engineering team to count on for help forces them to learn in place while your organization winds up footing the costs for their ongoing education.

  • Gain Access to Expertise in Advanced Network Solutions
    The majority of smaller service organizations or independent engineers focused on small company IT consulting may excel at delivering connect-the-dots solutions but don't have the experience to work cost-effectively with complex IT environments that have mixed platforms, many locations, Voice over IP systems, mobile clients, interconnected accounting and operational applications, eCommerce, and specialized business applications. Progent's experience with worldwide enterprises and Progent's large group of experts can be valuable to your business because big-company networks are characteristically complex, support issues demand thorough understanding of in numerous technical disciplines, and reaching an acceptable degree of robustness, reliability, and security calls for industry-proven best practices.

  • Build a Solid Basis for Growth
    Small companies often start with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a proper basis, a series of ad hoc repairs often get thrown onto of a weak foundation. As a business evolves, stability and expandability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such networks need thorough evaluation, smart business analysis, and in-depth experience to upgrade to a network environment that will provide the reliable basis to handle critical business needs and ease future growth.

  • Team with Solution Providers, Not Resellers
    Smaller companies need direction and insight to work through an ever more complex maze of IT options available for accelerating growth and improving productivity. Businesses do not need an IT consultant or support firm that tries to promote a product. Progent avoids conflicts of interest by not reselling any products. Progent provides consulting and services exclusively. This permits Progent to align technical support with the genuine needs of clients. Combining IT consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of being driven by the actual needs of a small business.
