Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, using specialized software tools to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for finding and maintaining customers.

Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income because of daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our consulting work can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is published to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated throughout Northern California, however we are building a rapidly expanding group of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by offering a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and operations teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. We recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
