Palo Alto area small businesses leverage IT outsourcing to control costs and add value to their information network. By outsourcing IT services, small companies can gain access to certified IT consultants without having to pay for and manage an ever-growing number of full-time IT personnel. IT outsourcing allows your company to direct management time and attention to bolstering your core business without losing the advantage of expert network support.

IT outsourcing has undergone significant growth among small businesses both because of increasing pressure on IT budgets and the development of more cost-effective service models. Surveys reveal several key factors behind the decision of small businesses to outsource IT services:

  • Allow senior management to focus on business issues
  • Trim operating costs and provide better visibility for IT expenses
  • Reduce the support burden of internal IT resources
  • Gain access to world-class capabilities
  • Intelligently supplement rather than expand in-house IT staff
Progent's outsourcing services meet the requirements of small businesses whose situation makes it impractical to negotiate expensive, iron-clad service contracts with enterprise outsourcing firms but who are reluctant to put their IT support in the hands of an independent consultant, small consulting firm, or the tech-in-the-box support arm of a computer manufacturer.
