Affordable Computer Support Solutions
Many small businesses rely on poor metrics when shopping for a computer consultant. Cost per hour is seldom a reliable measure for value. A consultant with insufficient experience can take several times longer to perform the same task than a seasoned IT expert. For example, charging a third less per hour, but taking three times longer for the same job is not a deal. Even worse, a badly designed or implemented network environment that is unreliable and difficult to manage or expand can cost a small business many times over its setup price due to lost productivity. Progent's client testimonials from satisfied businesses throughout the U.S. confirm the effectiveness of Progent's service model and the expertise of Progent's team of engineers.
