Why Progent Is the Smart Choice for Cambridge, Massachusetts Small Businesses
Progent's size, breadth and depth of technical skill, and familiarity with enterprise IT consulting allow small and midsize businesses to avoid the problems related to over dependence on thinly staffed support organizations or individual engineers.
Teaming with Progent enables your small business to:
- Avoid Over Reliance on Individual Support Consultants
For network support, smaller companies often rely heavily on individual engineers. Although individual service providers have lower overhead than more substantial support firms and can typically bill apparently lower fees, they are sometimes too overworked to react quickly to urgent network problems. If a freelance consultant is occupied with another customer, ill, on travelling, or in class, the absence of replacement staff may force your company to wait for help during a crisis. As your company grows, network downtime or difficulties with line-of-business applications get more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent consultant can evaporate fast because of lower productivity. Also, when freelance engineers encounter new problems, the lack of a large engineering team to fall back on for advice forces them to learn on the job while your company winds up footing the bill for their ongoing education.
- Have Access to Experts in Advanced Network Issues
Many smaller service organizations or independent engineers focused on small business IT consulting are capable of providing routine solutions but lack the seasoning to work cost-effectively with complex network configurations that have mixed platforms, many offices, VoIP systems, mobile workforces, integrated financial and analytical software, data-driven web sites, and custom line-of-business applications. Progent's background with global enterprises and Progent's extensive team of experts can be valuable to your company because enterprise networks are inherently complicated, support issues require in-depth understanding of in numerous technical areas, and reaching a high degree of robustness, reliability, and protection calls for industry-tested leading practices.
- Create a Firm Basis for Growth
Small companies often begin with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a carefully designed architecture, a series of ad hoc repairs often get tossed on top of a weak foundation. As a business evolves, reliability and expandability issues can obstruct the success of the business. Such environments require thorough assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based experience to upgrade to a network infrastructure that will provide the solid basis to handle current business needs and ease future expansion.
- Team with Solution Consultants, Not Resellers
Small businesses need direction and insight to work through an ever more complex maze of technology options offered for enabling growth and enhancing productivity. Businesses do not need a network engineer or service organization that attempts to promote a product. Progent avoids conflicted motives by not selling hardware and software. Progent provides services exclusively. This allows Progent to match consulting services with the genuine needs of customers. Mixing IT support and product selling can lead to a conflict where the proposed solution is based on a predetermined vendor rather than being based on the actual needs of a small business.
