Why Progent Is the Smart Alternative for Springfield, Missouri Small Businesses
Progent's staff size, breadth and depth of information technology expertise, and experience with corporate network consulting allow small companies to avoid the problems related to over dependence on small support firms or freelance engineers.

Teaming with Progent allows your small business to:

  • Avoid Over Dependence on Individual Support Consultants
    For network services, smaller companies sometimes depend excessively on independent engineers. Although individual service engineers carry lower overhead than more substantial support firms and can typically charge nominally smaller rates, individuals are sometimes too busy to react rapidly to critical problems. If an independent consultant is busy with another customer, ill, on travelling, or in training, the lack of backup staff may require your company to wait for assistance in case of a crisis. As your company grows, network unavailability or difficulties with line-of-business applications get more costly. The money you believed you were conserving on an independent consultant can disappear quickly due to lost productivity. Also, when independent engineers encounter unfamiliar technologies, the unavailability of a big consulting group to count on for help forces them to learn in place while your organization winds up with the costs for their continuing education.

  • Gain Access to Expertise in Sophisticated IT Solutions
    Many smaller support firms or independent engineers focused on small company network consulting may excel at delivering connect-the-dots solutions but don't have the experience to work efficiently with complicated IT infrastructures with a variety of operating systems, many locations, Voice over IP implementations, mobile clients, interconnected accounting and analytical software, eCommerce, and specialized line-of-business software. Progent's background with global companies and Progent's large team of experts can benefit your small business because enterprise networks are inherently complex, integration problems require in-depth understanding of in numerous technical disciplines, and achieving a high level of stability, reliability, and protection requires industry-tested processes.

  • Build a Firm Basis for Seamless Growth
    Small businesses often begin with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a strong basis, a series of improvised repairs often get piled on top of a marginal structure. As a business evolves, stability and scalability problems can obstruct the productivity of the organization. These environments need proper assessment, intelligent business analysis, and broad-based expertise to migrate to an IT infrastructure that can act as the solid foundation to meet current business requirements and ease future expansion.

  • Work with Solution Consultants, Not Product Vendors
    Small businesses require direction and education to navigate through an ever more complicated array of technology options available for enabling business growth and improving productivity. Businesses do not need an IT engineer or support organization that attempts to promote a product. Progent eliminates conflicted motives by not reselling any products. Progent sells consulting and services exclusively. This permits Progent to match technical support services with the real needs of customers. Mixing network support and product selling can result in a conflict where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology instead of being driven by the actual needs of a customer.
