Why Progent Is the Right Alternative for Glendale, Arizona Businesses
Progent's staff size, scope of information technology expertise, and experience with corporate network support allow small and midsize companies to sidestep the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on thinly staffed service firms or individual engineers.
Teaming with Progent enables your small business to:
- Prevent Over Reliance on Freelance Consultants
For IT support, small businesses sometimes rely heavily on individual engineers. Though individual support providers have lower overhead than larger support firms and can typically charge apparently smaller fees, freelancers are occasionally unable to respond rapidly to urgent problems. If an independent engineer is occupied with different customer, sick, on vacation, or in training, the lack of replacement personnel may force your company to go without help during an emergency. The more your small business grows, network unavailability or problems with critical programs get more costly. The dollars you believed you were conserving on an independent consultant can be eaten up quickly because of lost productivity. Also, when independent consultants encounter unfamiliar problems, the lack of a big consulting group to depend on for assistance forces them to learn on the job while your organization ends up with the costs for their continuing training.
- Gain Access to Experts in Advanced IT Solutions
Many smaller support organizations or freelance consultants specializing in small company IT support are capable of delivering routine fixes but don't have the background to work cost-effectively with complex network configurations with a variety of operating systems, numerous offices, Voice over IP systems, remote workers, interconnected financial and analytical applications, data-driven web sites, and specialized line-of-business applications. Progent's background with worldwide companies and Progent's large team of specialists can benefit your small business because big-company networks are characteristically complex, integration problems require thorough understanding of in numerous technical areas, and achieving a high level of stability, reliability, and protection calls for enterprise-proven best practices.
- Create a Firm Foundation for Growth
Small businesses typically begin with an IT system implemented on a tight budget. Without a proper basis, a sequence of ad hoc repairs often get thrown on top of a marginal foundation. As a business grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the productivity of the organization. Such environments need thorough evaluation, smart strategic planning, and broad-based expertise to upgrade to a network infrastructure that can provide the reliable basis to handle critical business needs and support future expansion.
- Work with Solution Consultants, Not Product Vendors
Smaller businesses need direction and education to work through an increasingly complicated array of IT alternatives available for enabling growth and improving efficiency. They do not need an IT engineer or service organization that attempts to promote a product. Progent eliminates conflicted motives by not selling hardware and software. Progent offers consulting and services exclusively. This permits Progent to match consulting support with the real needs of clients. Combining IT consulting and product selling can result in a conflict where the recommended solution is based on a preselected technology rather than being driven by the actual needs of a client.
