Cost-effective Support Solutions
Many small businesses utilize poor metrics when shopping for a computer network consultant. Cost per hour is seldom a good measure for value. A consultant with inadequate technical background can take several times longer to perform the same job than an experienced Information Technology professional. For example, billing 30% less per hour, but taking three times as long for the same job is not a bargain. Still worse, a badly designed or configured IT environment that is undependable and hard to administer or expand can cost a small business many times over its setup price because of lost productivity. Progent's client testimonials from satisfied companies across the U.S. indicate the efficiency of Progent's service model and the expertise of Progent's staff of IT professionals.
