Cost-effective Network Support Solutions
Many small businesses rely on flawed metrics when shopping for a computer network consultant. Cost per hour is usually not a good measure for value. A consultant with inadequate experience can take several times longer to complete the identical job than an experienced Information Technology professional. For example, billing a third less per hour, but taking three times longer for the same task is not a bargain. Still worse, a badly architected or implemented network infrastructure that is unreliable and hard to manage or upgrade can cost a business many times more than its setup price because of lost productivity. Progent's customer testimonials from satisfied businesses across the U.S. indicate the effectiveness of Progent's service model and the expertise of Progent's team of IT professionals.
