For small business network systems located anywhere in the state of Washington, Progent's Microsoft qualified technical experts can deliver online help and remote troubleshooting to repair your computer network issues fast and affordably.

Progent’s group of seasoned network consultants average more than twelve years of real-world IT industry experience, in the trenches of network systems support, performing a wide range of technical tasks for a broad range of customers. This means you obtain not only the technical expertise needed for the job, but an expert with field proven methods for applying that expertise to assist with efficient network solutions.

Affordable Network Support Solutions
Many small businesses utilize flawed metrics when searching for a computer network consultant. Cost per hour is seldom a good measure for value. A consultant with insufficient experience can take several times longer to perform the same job than an experienced Information Technology professional. For example, billing 30% less per hour, but taking three times as long for the same task is not a deal. Even worse, a poorly designed or configured network infrastructure that is unreliable and hard to manage or expand can cost a small business many times more than its initial price because of lost productivity. Progent's customer testimonials from satisfied businesses throughout the United States confirm the effectiveness of Progent's service model and the expertise of Progent's staff of engineers.
