In the days before office networking was common, upgrading necessary software programs could be a monumental expense for an office with several PCs. A small business owner with meager margins may have struggled to pay for the purchase of individual programs for every single PC in the office in order to make a full upgrade.
Many software manufacturers now offer licensing agreements for networks that is a much more cost effective option for initializing a complete office upgrade for an expensive program. A licensing agreement can make it possible for a business owner to upgrade the software on a multitude of computers for a small portion of what it might cost to individually upgrade each PC.
In addition to the cost savings realized through network upgrades of software, the info on office PCs can be kept much more up to date with centralized back ups of information. Conducting daily back ups via a centralized server is much more efficient and much more reliable than having to rely on each employee that enters information to perform a regular back up on their own.
Networking the PCs and equipment in your office will lead to immediate benefits in terms of convenience and security and in many cases the project can be completed more quickly and affordably. Contact a network specialist today to discuss the details of your office networking project.
