There’s a difference between getting things done fast, and getting them done right. Luckily, small business owners no longer have to choose one or the other when it comes to communication.
High speed Internet is an asset to your business. It helps employees get their work done faster and more efficiently, and helps customers stay in touch and easily navigate your company’s online tools.
Still, many business owners shy away from the service out of fear of high bills and expensive start-up costs. That’s simply not the case. In fact, some plans actually cost less than what you’re paying now!
If you’re not using fast Internet, you’re holding your business back from it’s true potential. Here’s how the service can actually help your business grow:
Saves Time and Money
You might think a few extra seconds to download a web page is no big deal. But when all those seconds are added up throughout the day, you’re losing valuable time that could be spent doing other things.
When employees have to wait to perform their daily tasks, it affects both productivity and morale. Employees don’t want to have to stop their momentum and be held back by slow Internet speeds. When these workers feel they’re being denied use of the latest technology, they start to wonder why. They start to worry about the financial state of the company. This turns their focus away from their work.
In addition, essential business tools depend on the fast connection high-speed Internet provides. Your employees will not be able to effectively use tools such as screen sharing and teleconferencing over slow connections. At best, you set yourself up for frequent ‘technical difficulties.’ At worst, these tools will simply be unavailable for use under the existing setup.
Then there’s the stress on sales. Customers will soon become frustrated if they’re made to wait due to a slow connection. In many cases, they’ll find another company with which to do business. That directly affects your bottom line.
Improves Performance and Security
Computers quickly get overwhelmed trying to download large files (PDFs, presentations, images, videos) over a slow connection. This stress on the machines creates the need for repairs and replacement sooner than necessary.
By contrast, high speed Internet downloads media while employees are performing their daily duties — providing seamless transitions from one task to the next.
In addition, this service allows you to use cloud data storage and backup to secure your most important files. In an era of hacking and equipment theft, the peace of mind that your company’s private information is safely stored in the cloud is priceless. Slower connections increase the time it takes to access this information, which can quickly bring production to a stand-still.
Easy to Install and Maintain
These benefits and more make high speed Internet an essential addition to your small business. Plus, getting started is easy! You could be up and running with faster speeds in no time.
