Congratulations! Your company has developed at breakneck speed, and you've been adding new employees and computers to keep up. Now that you've double-checked everything is on track, it's time to upgrade your network to a more robust, scalable configuration.

Why? Here are the five reasons to hire a networking expert right now:


Time is money but waiting for a large file to be transferred from one person to another or through a bottlenecked system is misery. This wasted time was insignificant as a small business, but as your company has expanded, so has transfer time. While it may just take 5 minutes per day to begin, with 260 workdays in a year, 5 minutes per day quickly add up to 21 hours. Everything adds up.

Unfortunately, the impact of this lost time extends far beyond the time it takes to pass a flash drive around the company or queue up internet downloads. It's a disruption in productivity and focus that can nearly quadruple the amount of time spent off-task.


Employees in almost every company are required to share digital assets. You may have gotten by with a simple configuration and minimal protection up until now. But as your workforce has expanded, so has the burden on your network. Each computer, storage drive, and device add to your network's loads, resulting in slower transfers, errors, time away from the task, and an even faster hardware breakdown.

Thanks to a clever network design, your staff will have a central file storage place with the extra benefit of auto-saving and backups. As a result, there will be no more wasted work hours or unexpected file corruption.


Employees are frequently required to collaborate on the same materials. Previously, they had to take turns and wait for someone else to finish before the file was made available.

Collaboration becomes a natural and profitable way to operate with a modern network arrangement. Employees don't even need to be in the same physical location, allowing for remote cooperation.


Every company must preserve a few secrets. You have complete control over who sees what, whether trade secrets or accounting data. A networking expert will be able to build up a system that matches your company's specific confidentiality requirements. Perhaps the CEO will be able to access everything. Still, salespeople will only see sales data, and accounting will only see accounts. Set access limits for specific folders based on name, department, or role, or go even farther and require passwords or 2FA.


Wireless networking for employees who must wander within the building, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) for those working from home, and even docking ports for individuals who relocate between locations can all help you increase your connection flexibility. A well-designed network will always support how your company operates, both today and in the future.


One of the most critical factors in your company's continuous growth will be its capacity to securely exchange, save, and transfer files. You'll save time, money, and a lot of frustration if you implement speed, efficiency, and adaptability into your IT policies and IT processes now. It's time to reflect on how far your company has come and looked to the future with a reliable, scalable network that will help you achieve your goals.
