Cost-effective Computer Support Solutions
Many small companies rely on flawed metrics when searching for a computer consultant. Cost per hour is usually not a good measure for value. A consultant with insufficient 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 hardly a bargain. Still worse, a badly designed or configured network infrastructure that is unreliable and difficult to administer or upgrade can cost a small business many times more than its initial price because of lost productivity. Progent's client testimonials from satisfied businesses across the U.S. indicate the efficiency of Progent's service model and the expertise of Progent's team of IT professionals.
