Cost-effective Support Solutions
Many small organizations utilize poor metrics when searching for a computer consultant. Cost per hour is usually not a reliable measure for value. A consultant with inadequate technical background can take many times longer to complete the same job than a seasoned Information Technology professional. For example, billing 30% less per hour, but taking three times longer for the same job is not a bargain. Even worse, a poorly architected or configured network infrastructure that is unreliable and difficult to manage or expand can cost an organization many times over its initial price due to lost productivity. Progent's client testimonials from satisfied businesses throughout the United States confirm the efficiency of Progent's support model and the technical capability of Progent's team of engineers.
