Working with the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running custom software utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that separates Progent from most network support companies is the high caliber of our consultants. Among the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have recruited top talent across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose income with daily drives to a physical office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our support work can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client needs through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated across California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of network professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now engaging each month. We lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
