To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to do the job properly. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our consulting work can be done remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Our business structure is geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across Northern California, however we are building a rapidly growing group of network experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business models.

Progent lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
