Why Progent Is the Right Alternative for Arlington, Virginia Businesses
Progent's staff size, breadth of information technology expertise, and familiarity with enterprise IT support allow small and midsize companies to sidestep the problems related to excessive dependence on small support organizations or freelance consultants.
Teaming with Progent's Experts enables your company to:
- Avoid Over Reliance on Individual Consultants
For IT support, small businesses sometimes rely excessively on freelance engineers. Though individual support engineers have lower overhead than larger support firms and can afford to charge nominally smaller rates, freelancers are often stretched to far to respond rapidly to urgent network problems. If a freelance engineer is busy with different customer, sick, on vacation, or in training, the absence of backup staff may require your company to wait for help during a crisis. As your small business expands, network unavailability or difficulties with critical applications get more expensive. The dollars you thought you were saving on an independent consultant can evaporate fast due to lost productivity. Also, when freelance consultants encounter unfamiliar problems, the lack of a large engineering team to rely on for advice forces them to train with the meter running while your business winds up footing the bill for their continuing training.
- Gain Access to Expertise in Sophisticated IT Solutions
The majority of smaller support firms or independent consultants specializing in small business network support are capable of providing connect-the-dots fixes but lack the experience to deal efficiently with complicated IT infrastructures with mixed platforms, numerous offices, VoIP implementations, remote workforces, integrated financial and analytical software, eCommerce, and custom business applications. Progent's experience with global enterprises and Progent's extensive staff of experts can be valuable to your business because enterprise networks are by nature complex, support issues demand in-depth understanding of in numerous technical disciplines, and achieving a high level of stability, availability, and protection requires enterprise-tested processes.
- Build a Firm Basis for Seamless Growth
Small businesses typically start with an IT system cobbled together on a shoestring budget. Without a carefully designed architecture, a series of improvised fixes commonly get thrown on top of a weak structure. As a business grows, stability and scalability issues can undermine the success of the organization. Such environments require thorough assessment, smart business planning, and in-depth expertise to upgrade to an IT environment that can provide the solid foundation to handle critical business needs and ease future expansion.
- Team with Solution Providers, Not Product Vendors
Small businesses require direction and education to work through an increasingly complex array of IT alternatives available for enabling growth and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need a network consultant or support firm that tries to promote products. Progent eliminates conflicted motives by not selling hardware and software. Progent sells services exclusively. This allows Progent to match consulting services with the genuine needs of customers. Combining IT support and product reselling can lead to a conflict where the proposed solution is based on a preselected technology instead of being based on the actual requirements of a client.
