Onsite Service Available in Citrus Heights, Roseville, Folsom, Rocklin, Auburn, Fair Oaks

Citrus Heights and Roseville area small businesses take advantage of IT outsourcing to cut network maintenance expenses and increase the business value of their information networks. Outsourcing gives small companies fast and consistent access to computer service experts without requiring that companies take on the burden of managing a large in-house IT support staff. IT outsourcing frees your company to concentrate on strengthening your core business without giving up high-quality IT support.

At one time, IT outsourcing for small businesses was considered unaffordable for the small business and unprofitable for the IT service provider. As a result, small companies were underserved by third-party support organizations. Now IT outsourcing is experiencing dramatic growth among small companies who wish to:

  • Keep management focused on core business issues
  • Control head count and IT operating expenses
  • Free up in-house personnel to work on line-of-business tasks
  • Gain timely access to world-class network engineers
  • Find an appropriate mix of external technical expertise and internal IT support

Progent's outsourcing services offer the flexibility to be affordable and effective for small businesses who can't justify adding internal head count or committing to expensive third-party service providers but who are also reluctant to trust their entire business network to the skill and availability of an individual consultant.
