Small and midsize companies in the Oakland/Berkeley area utilize IT outsourcing to lower network support costs and increase the strategic value of their computer networks. With IT outsourcing, small companies gain the reliable availability of experienced network engineers while avoiding the high cost of hiring and managing an effective internal IT services group. IT outsourcing enables small businesses to deploy staff and capital more efficiently so that management can focus internal resources on improving the core business while at the same time having the benefit of excellent and consistent network support.

IT outsourcing has grown in popularity among small companies because of its proven benefits. Key reasons for small businesses to rely on outsourced IT support services include:

  • Remove IT support as a major distraction to senior management
  • Minimize network service and operating expenses
  • Redirect in-house IT expertise to strategic business initiatives
  • Ensure dependable and timely access to certified network support professionals
  • Affordably supplement internal resources with high-end expertise

IT outsourcing services from Progent are designed to address the financial realities and functional necessities of small organizations who lack the budgets and bandwidth to hammer out complicated outsourcing agreements with giant IT service providers and whose networks lack the rigid standardization required for mass-market IT service companies to work effectively. The breadth and depth of expertise represented by Progent's engineering staff permits Progent to provide more consistent and efficient support than freelance consultants or small service firms can offer.
