Cost-effective Network Support Solutions
Many small companies rely on flawed metrics when shopping for a computer network consultant. Cost per hour is seldom a reliable measure for value. A consultant with insufficient experience can take many times longer to complete the identical task than an experienced Information Technology expert. For example, charging 30% less per hour, but taking three times as long for the same job is not a bargain. Even worse, a poorly architected or implemented IT environment that is undependable and difficult to manage or expand can cost a small business many times more than its setup price because of lost productivity. Progent's client testimonials from satisfied companies throughout the U.S. confirm the effectiveness of Progent's support model and the technical capability of Progent's staff of engineers.
