Cost-effective Support Solutions
Many small organizations rely on poor metrics when shopping for a computer network consultant. Cost per hour is usually not a good measure for value. A consultant with insufficient experience can take several times longer to complete the same job than an experienced IT professional. As an example, charging a third less per hour, but taking three times longer for the same task is hardly a deal. Still worse, a badly architected or implemented network infrastructure that is unstable and hard to administer or upgrade can cost a business many times more than its setup price because of lost productivity. Progent's customer testimonials from satisfied businesses throughout the U.S. confirm the effectiveness of Progent's service model and the technical capability of Progent's team of engineers.
