Why Progent Is the Smart Choice for Springfield, Massachusetts Small Businesses
Progent's size, depth of information technology skill, and familiarity with corporate network support enable small and midsize businesses to sidestep the pitfalls associated with over reliance on thinly staffed service organizations or independent consultants.

Teaming with Progent enables your business to:

  • Prevent Excessive Dependence on Individual Support Consultants
    For network support, small companies sometimes depend heavily on freelance engineers. Although individual service engineers have lower overhead than larger support organizations and can typically bill apparently lower rates, they are often too busy to react quickly to urgent problems. If a freelance consultant is busy with different customer, ill, on travelling, or in training, the lack of backup personnel may require your company to wait for help during an emergency. As your small business expands, system downtime or difficulties with line-of-business applications get more costly. The money you believed you were saving on an independent consultant can disappear fast because of lost output. In addition, when freelance engineers encounter unfamiliar problems, the lack of a large consulting group to rely on for help forces them to train with the meter running while your business ends up with the costs for their ongoing training.

  • Gain Access to Certified Professionals in Complex IT Solutions
    The majority of small support firms or independent consultants focused on small business IT consulting are capable of delivering connect-the-dots solutions but don't have the experience to work cost-effectively with complex IT configurations with mixed platforms, many sites, VoIP implementations, remote workforces, interconnected financial and operational software, data-driven web sites, and specialized business applications. Progent's background with global enterprises and Progent's large group of experts can benefit your business because enterprise networks are characteristically complex, support problems demand in-depth knowledge in numerous technical areas, and achieving a high degree of stability, availability, and protection requires enterprise-tested best practices.

  • Create a Solid Basis for Seamless Growth
    Small businesses typically start with a network cobbled together on a shoestring budget. Lacking a solid basis, a series of improvised repairs commonly get tossed onto of a marginal foundation. As a company evolves, reliability and expandability issues can undermine the success of the organization. These networks need proper evaluation, intelligent business planning, and in-depth experience to upgrade to an IT environment that will provide the solid foundation to meet current business requirements and ease future growth.

  • Team with Solution Providers, Not Product Vendors
    Smaller businesses need guidance and insight to navigate through an ever more complex maze of IT alternatives available for enabling growth and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a network consultant or support organization that tries to sell them a product. Progent eliminates conflicted motives by not reselling any products. Progent offers services only. This permits Progent to align technical support with the real interests of clients. Mixing IT support and product selling can result in a conflict where the recommended solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of being driven by the true requirements of a small business.
