Cost-effective Support Solutions
Many small organizations rely on flawed metrics when shopping for a computer network consultant. Cost per hour is usually not a good measure for value. A consultant with inadequate technical background can take many times longer to perform the identical task than a seasoned IT expert. For example, billing a third less per hour, but taking three times longer for the same task is hardly a deal. Still worse, a badly architected or configured IT infrastructure that is unstable and hard to manage or expand can cost an organization many times over its setup price due to lost productivity. Progent's customer testimonials from satisfied companies throughout the U.S. confirm the efficiency of Progent's support model and the expertise of Progent's staff of engineers.

Team Approach to Support and Technical Problem Escalation
Computer networks have become increasingly sophisticated. In addition, typical small business networks include products from many different suppliers. All this makes network integration and support increasingly difficult. It is impossible for even the most capable individual to have deep familiarity in all aspects of information technology, or broad hands-on experience in the thousands of brands, models, and revisions that small businesses include in their information systems. Progent utilizes a collaborative approach to network support and depends on subject matter specialists to bring high-level skills when needed to resolve complex technical issues efficiently, at the least cost to your company.
