Expert Online Help for Alexandria, Virginia Networks from Certified Engineers
Small businesses have traditionally been underserved by major network service organizations. Some small companies allow themselves to grow overly reliant on freelance consultants or small consulting firms who lack the size or broad skill sets to react quickly or efficiently to technical emergencies. Still other small companies resort to mass-market service firms staffed with personnel able to provide by-the-numbers solutions to common issues but who do not have the experience and versatility to deal with the variety of configurations and lack of standardization that characterizes small company information networks.
Progent's time-tested approach to providing affordable and effective technical service to small businesses has made Progent among the top Microsoft-certified IT service organizations in the United States. Progent has delivered online support to small businesses in every state in the U.S. (refer to Progent's customer testimonials).
