Why Progent Offers the Right Alternative for Lafayette, Louisiana Small Businesses
Progent's size, scope of technical expertise, and familiarity with enterprise network consulting allow small businesses to sidestep the problems related to over dependence on small support organizations or freelance consultants.
Working with Progent's Experts enables your company to:
- Avoid Excessive Dependence on Freelance Support Consultants
For IT support, small businesses sometimes depend excessively on freelance consultants. Though individual service providers carry lower expenses than more substantial support organizations and can typically charge apparently lower fees, individuals are frequently too overworked to respond quickly to critical situations. If an independent consultant is occupied with another client, ill, on vacation, or in class, the lack of backup staff may require your business to wait for help during a crisis. The more your company expands, system downtime or problems with critical programs get more costly. The money you thought you were conserving on an independent consultant can be eaten up fast due to lower productivity. In addition, when independent engineers confront new problems, the lack of a big consulting group to rely on for help requires them to learn with the meter running while your business ends up with the costs for their ongoing education.
- Have Access to Certified Professionals in Advanced Network Solutions
Many smaller support organizations or independent consultants specializing in small business network support are capable of providing connect-the-dots fixes but don't have the background to work cost-effectively with complex network environments that have mixed platforms, multiple locations, VoIP systems, mobile workers, integrated financial and analytical applications, eCommerce, and specialized business applications. Progent's background with worldwide enterprises and Progent's extensive group of experts can be valuable to your company because enterprise environments are by nature complex, integration issues demand thorough knowledge in many technical areas, and achieving a high level of robustness, reliability, and security calls for enterprise-tested leading practices.
- Create a Solid Basis for Growth
Small businesses often start with a network implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a strong architecture, a series of improvised repairs commonly get tossed onto of a marginal foundation. As a business grows, stability and scalability issues can obstruct the productivity of the business. These environments need thorough assessment, smart strategic analysis, and broad-based expertise to migrate to an IT environment that can provide the reliable foundation to meet critical business needs and ease future expansion.
- Partner with Solution Consultants, Not Product Resellers
Small companies need direction and insight to navigate through an ever more complex maze of technology options available for accelerating business growth and enhancing efficiency. Businesses do not need an IT consultant or support organization that tries to sell them products. Progent eliminates conflicts of interest by not reselling any products. Progent provides services exclusively. This permits Progent to match technical support services with the real needs of customers. Mixing network support and product reselling can lead to a situation where the recommended solution is built around a preselected technology instead of being based on the actual requirements of a customer.
