Progent offers technical services for mid-size businesses who have 100 to 250 network clients. The mid-size business or work group has typically been an underserved segment of the market for network consulting expertise. The cost structures and service delivery models of major outside service organizations make them too costly for the typical mid-size company or small medium business (SMB), which commonly has a modest IT budget with which to maintain an information network whose complexity and capability are often comparable to the information systems of far larger companies. Progent's service delivery model, which takes great advantage of online service, virtual office technology and 24x7 network monitoring, dramatically lowers the IT support costs of an SMB while providing the mid-size organization with big-company service from professional, IT consultants knowledgeable in a wide array of midsized business network solutions.
