Expert Remote Service for Waco, Texas Networks from World-class Consultants
Small businesses have typically been ignored by large IT support organizations. Many small businesses allow themselves to become overly reliant on freelance consultants or small consulting organizations who lack the size or broad skill sets to react quickly or effectively to technical emergencies. Still other small businesses turn to mass-market support firms staffed with personnel able to provide standardized solutions to common problems but who do not have the background and versatility to deal with the variety of environments and lack of standards that characterizes small business information networks.

Progent has provided remote support to companies in every state in the country and offers in-person support in almost all zip codes.

Why Progent Is the Smart Choice for Waco, Texas Businesses
Progent's size, depth of information technology expertise, and experience with corporate network consulting allow small companies to sidestep the pitfalls related to over reliance on small service organizations or independent engineers.

Teaming with Progent enables your company to:

  • Prevent Excessive Reliance on Individual Support Consultants
    For network services, small businesses sometimes depend excessively on individual engineers. Though individual service engineers have lower expenses than larger support organizations and can afford to charge nominally smaller fees, they are often unable to respond rapidly to urgent situations. If a freelance consultant is occupied with different client, ill, on travelling, or in training, the lack of replacement staff may force your business to go without assistance during an emergency. The more your small business expands, system downtime or problems with line-of-business applications get more expensive. The dollars you believed you were conserving on an independent consultant can disappear quickly because of lower output. Also, when independent consultants encounter unfamiliar problems, the unavailability of a big consulting team to depend on for assistance requires them to learn on the job while your business winds up with the costs for their continuing training.

  • Gain Access to Certified Professionals in Sophisticated IT Issues
    The majority of small support firms or freelance consultants specializing in small business IT support may excel at delivering connect-the-dots solutions but don't have the experience to deal cost-effectively with complex IT environments with mixed operating systems, many sites, VoIP systems, remote workforces, integrated accounting and operational applications, data-driven web sites, and custom business software. Progent's background with worldwide companies and Progent's large team of specialists can be valuable to your small business because enterprise environments are characteristically complicated, integration problems require in-depth knowledge in many technical disciplines, and achieving a high level of stability, availability, and protection calls for industry-tested processes.

  • Create a Firm Foundation for Seamless Growth
    Small companies often start with an IT system cobbled together on a shoestring budget. Lacking a strong architecture, a series of ad hoc repairs often get thrown onto of a tenuous structure. As a company grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the business. These environments require thorough assessment, intelligent business analysis, and in-depth experience to migrate to an IT environment that can act as the solid foundation to handle critical business requirements and support future growth.

  • Partner with Solution Providers, Not Product Vendors
    Small companies require guidance and education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology options available for enabling business growth and improving efficiency. Businesses do not need a network consultant or support firm that tries to sell them a product. Progent eliminates conflicted motives by not selling hardware and software. Progent sells consulting and services only. This permits Progent to align technical services with the genuine interests of customers. Combining IT consulting and product reselling can lead to a conflict where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than being driven by the actual requirements of a customer.
