Professional Remote Troubleshooting for Topeka, Kansas Networks from Certified Engineers

Many small businesses allow themselves to become overly reliant on individual consultants or small consulting organizations who don't have the bandwidth or extensive skill sets to react quickly or effectively to technical emergencies.

Why Progent Is the Right Alternative for Topeka, Kansas Small Businesses
Progent's staff size, breadth and depth of technical skill, and familiarity with enterprise IT consulting allow small and midsize businesses to avoid the pitfalls related to over dependence on thinly staffed support organizations or individual consultants.

Teaming with Progent enables your small business to:

  • Avoid Excessive Dependence on Individual Consultants
    For IT services, small businesses sometimes depend heavily on freelance consultants. Though individual service providers have lower overhead than more substantial support firms and can typically bill nominally smaller fees, freelancers are sometimes too busy to respond rapidly to urgent problems. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another client, sick, on travelling, or in class, the absence of replacement personnel may force your business to go without help in case of an emergency. As your company grows, network downtime or problems with critical applications get more costly. The dollars you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly because of lost output. In addition, when independent consultants encounter new technologies, the lack of a big engineering team to fall back on for assistance requires them to train on the job while your organization ends up with the costs for their ongoing training.

  • Have Access to Certified Professionals in Complex Information Technology Solutions
    The majority of smaller support firms or independent engineers focused on small business IT support are capable of delivering connect-the-dots solutions but don't have the seasoning to work cost-effectively with complicated network environments that have mixed platforms, many sites, Voice over IP implementations, mobile clients, interconnected accounting and analytical software, data-driven web sites, and custom business applications. Progent's background with worldwide companies and Progent's extensive team of experts can be valuable to your company because enterprise networks are by nature complicated, integration issues require thorough understanding of in many technical disciplines, and achieving an acceptable degree of robustness, reliability, and protection requires enterprise-proven best practices.

  • Build a Firm Basis for Growth
    Small companies often begin with a network implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a solid architecture, a series of improvised fixes often get tossed on top of a weak structure. As a business evolves, stability and expandability issues can obstruct the productivity of the business. These networks need proper assessment, intelligent business analysis, and in-depth experience to migrate to an IT infrastructure that can provide the solid basis to handle current business requirements and support future growth.

  • Partner with Solution Finders, Not Resellers
    Small companies require guidance and education to work through an ever more complex array of IT alternatives available for enabling business growth and improving productivity. Businesses do not need a network engineer or service organization that attempts to promote products. Progent eliminates conflicts of interest by not reselling any products. Progent offers services exclusively. This permits Progent to align consulting support with the genuine needs of clients. Mixing IT consulting and product selling can lead to a conflict where the proposed solution is based on a predetermined vendor rather than being driven by the actual requirements of a customer.
