We are looking for technical professionals who can show recognized credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to enable the highest quality of service, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The main factor that separates Progent from most consulting firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled top talent across a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on major projects by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income with daily commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site client work is determined by your time table, not ours. The best part is that most of our consulting services can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, client problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated throughout California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of network professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and administration teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing close client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not have strong communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.
