Onsite Service Available in Hayward, San Leandro, Union City, San Lorenzo, Castro Valley

Small businesses in the San Francisco East Bay area use IT outsourcing to reduce costs and increase computing value. IT outsourcing gives even a small company access to highly-skilled people without the expense of maintaining a large in-house staff of IT personnel. IT outsourcing allows your company to concentrate money, attention and time on strengthening your core business while still enjoying the benefits of high-quality IT support.

Because of its recognized efficiency, IT outsourcing is growing dramatically, particularly among small businesses who until recently were relatively unfamiliar with the concept. Surveys show that the top reasons for small businesses to outsource IT services are:

  • Improve company focus
  • Reduce and control operating costs
  • Free resources for other purposes
  • Gain access to world-class capabilities
  • Add key resources not available internally

Progent's outsourcing services are geared specifically to meet the budgetary and operational needs of small businesses who can't justify the expense of spending months negotiating complex outsourcing contracts and whose IT requirements typically rely on standard applications and architectures rather than highly customized environments.
