Cost-effective Support Solutions
Many small companies utilize poor metrics when shopping for a computer network consultant. Cost per hour is usually not a good measure for value. A consultant with inadequate experience can take several times longer to complete the same job than an experienced Information Technology expert. For example, charging 30% less per hour, but taking three times as long for the same job is hardly a deal. Even worse, a poorly architected or implemented IT environment that is undependable and hard to administer or upgrade can cost an organization many times over its initial price due to lost productivity. Progent's client testimonials from satisfied companies throughout the U.S. indicate the effectiveness of Progent's support model and the technical capability of Progent's staff of IT professionals.
