Affordable Support Solutions
Many small companies rely on flawed metrics when shopping for a computer network consultant. Cost per hour is seldom a good measure for value. A consultant with inadequate technical background can take many times longer to perform the identical task than an experienced IT expert. For example, charging a third less per hour, but taking three times as long for the same task is hardly a deal. Still worse, a badly architected or configured IT infrastructure that is undependable and hard to administer or upgrade can cost a small business many times over its setup price due to lost productivity. Progent's client testimonials from satisfied businesses throughout the United States confirm the efficiency of Progent's service model and the technical capability of Progent's team of engineers.
