Your business has grown at great speed over the past few years. What was once a small business has now established itself as a market leader. Now that everything is on track, you also need to ensure your IT network is in sync with your growing business needs.
Here are the top four reasons why you should ensure your IT network is suitable for your established business.
Transferring a huge file across a network could affect productivity as your employees lose time waiting. As an established business, you cannot afford such productivity leaks. It might just be five minutes a day.
However, with an average of 260 business days in a year, those 5 minutes per day workout to 21 hours per year. This lost time can affect workflow, focus and even concentration that could, in effect, double the time.
Every business needs people for growth. You might have started small and with a minimal setup without any security. However, as your business grows, so does your workforce and the load on your network.
Every computer, printer, storage drive and any other network device adds load on your network, which can slow down the transfer, result in errors and even reduce the life of your hardware. A well-designed IT network gives your employees a centralised location to store files with the added advantage of automated backups.
Your business won’t have to face sudden shocks such as file corruptions or loss of valuable effort.
If your IT network is years old, it’s possible that it’s lagging behind in terms of security. Security measures cannot be ignored just because everything is smooth. Perhaps you are not aware of a gaping hole in your IT network’s security that needs immediate attention.
