Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Our commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who have verifiable credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE credential.

If you have mastered your field, then most of those tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will broadcast your skills, but you must have standard credentials for us to market. In case you are adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using proprietary application tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that differentiates us from typical network support firms is the quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our team of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's support services can be performed remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located throughout California, but we are building a rapidly expanding group of consulting experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

If all this seems right for you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
