How to Know if Your Business Can Benefit from Better Networking

For most small businesses, downtime due to lagging networks or network failure is the second highest business cost after HR. It is also one of the widest reaching problems a business can face, affecting everyone from clients and suppliers to employees and managers.[1]  One way to determine whether your businesses should invest in improving the quality of your network connections is to answer the following questions.

Does your business:

  • Leverage the internet for 50% of your business operations or more?
  • Deploy 3 or more computers, including phones, laptops, and desk side machines?
  • Employ 2 or more employees?
  • Conduct business at multiple (two-four) locations?[2]

If you answered yes to any of the previous questions, then you need to review your current network setup because your company can benefit from a faster network. Many variables affect how fast your network is running, and we at Hill Country Technology Solutions have seen everything.
