Affordable Network Support Solutions
Many small businesses rely on flawed metrics when shopping for a computer network consultant. Cost per hour is seldom a reliable measure for value. A consultant with inadequate technical background can take many times longer to perform the same job than a seasoned Information Technology professional. For example, charging 30% less per hour, but taking three times longer for the same job is hardly a deal. Still worse, a badly architected or configured IT infrastructure that is undependable and hard to administer or expand can cost a business many times more than its initial price due to lost productivity. Progent's client testimonials from satisfied companies across the United States confirm the efficiency of Progent's service model and the technical capability of Progent's staff of IT professionals.
