Why Progent Is the Right Alternative for Bellevue, Washington Small Businesses
Progent's staff size, depth of information technology skill, and familiarity with corporate network consulting allow small businesses to sidestep the problems associated with excessive dependence on thinly staffed service organizations or freelance consultants.
Teaming with Progent enables your company to:
- Prevent Over Dependence on Freelance Support Consultants
For network services, small businesses often rely excessively on freelance consultants. Though freelance support providers have lower expenses than more substantial IT service organizations and can typically charge nominally smaller rates, individuals are occasionally stretched to far to react rapidly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with different customer, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of backup staff may require your business to wait for help during an emergency. The more your small business expands, system unavailability or problems with critical applications get more expensive. The money you believed you were conserving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly because of lost productivity. Also, when independent consultants confront unfamiliar problems, the unavailability of a big engineering group to depend on for assistance requires them to train with the meter running while your company winds up footing the bill for their continuing education.
- Gain Access to Expertise in Complex Information Technology Issues
The majority of small service firms or independent consultants focused on small company IT consulting are capable of providing routine fixes but don't have the experience to work efficiently with complicated IT configurations with a variety of operating systems, many offices, Voice over IP systems, remote clients, interconnected accounting and operational applications, eCommerce, and specialized business applications. Progent's background with worldwide enterprises and Progent's extensive team of experts can benefit your company because enterprise networks are characteristically complex, integration issues require in-depth understanding of in numerous technical disciplines, and achieving a high degree of robustness, availability, and security calls for industry-proven best practices.
- Create a Firm Basis for Growth
Small businesses typically begin with a network cobbled together on a shoestring budget. Without a solid basis, a sequence of improvised fixes commonly get piled on top of a marginal structure. As a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the business. These networks require proper evaluation, smart business planning, and broad-based expertise to upgrade to an IT environment that will act as the solid foundation to handle current business requirements and ease downstream expansion.
- Partner with Solution Providers, Not Product Resellers
Small companies need guidance and insight to navigate through an ever more complex maze of technology alternatives offered for accelerating business growth and improving productivity. Businesses do not need an IT consultant or service organization that attempts to sell them a product. Progent avoids conflicts of interest by not reselling any products. Progent sells services and expertise only. This permits Progent to align consulting support services with the real needs of customers. Combining network consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined vendor instead of being based on the actual requirements of a customer.
