IT outsourcing enables companies on the San Francisco Peninsula to control IT expenses and increase productivity. IT outsourcing is the preferred way for small businesses to gain ongoing access to information technology experts without incurring the ongoing cost of supporting a large in-house IT organization. IT outsourcing allows your company to spend money and time on managing your business while still enjoying the benefits of best-in-class IT support.

Many small businesses still think that IT outsourcing makes sense only for large corporations. This misconception is quickly changing as a growing number of small and mid-sized companies are gaining competitive advantage through IT outsourcing. Surveys have identified the main reasons for businesses to outsource IT services:

  • Focus senior management on strategic business issues
  • Keep IT costs in line
  • Make specialized internal resources available for critical tasks
  • Have access to responsive IT experts whenever necessary
  • Efficiently balance internal and external resources

Mega-sized outsourcing companies typically require you to commit to complex, long-term contracts and often will not consider small companies for consulting engagements that require high-level expertise. Progent's outsourcing services are targeted to meet the financial constraints and operational requirements of businesses who are too small for the largest consulting firms but who don't feel safe putting their IT network in the hands of a single, independent consultant.
