The short answer? Update your internet speed and services.

Slow WiFi is the arch enemy of productivity and revenue. It severely impacts the fluidity of facility operations, decreasing the level of performance of SaaS apps, customer relationship management (CRM) programs, and financial processing programs. Facilities lose valuable time waiting for programs to load, money on poor services, and confidence surrounding security breaches.

In the post-Covid era, businesses have come to rely on internet access more than ever, raising the standards for what internet speed and services entails. As companies continue to make the transition to remote work, strong and reliable WiFi has gone from preferable to necessary. Without it, companies are stuck with a bandwidth that’s unable to support high-speed uploading/downloading, video conferencing, VoIP calls, large data transfers, and cloud applications. As a result, facilities not only waste thousands of dollars on traditional landline phones but they end up barring themselves from entering the latest market of cloud applications altogether, as many cloud programs now rely on high-speed WiFi to support its function. Decreased bandwidth is also met with impatience on the client end, causing businesses to lose customers who don’t care to wait for pages to load or cannot trust a business’s ability to operate safely and efficiently due to unreliable performance.

The bottom line is, slow internet is like a big hole in your pocket. High-speed WiFi can patch it.

Top Benefits of High-Speed WiFi:

  1. Seamless transitions from task to task allows for effective collaboration despite employees working remotely or those working while traveling. With access to high-speed internet, employees can collaborate through shared platforms, share files, print documents remotely, and perform tasks as if they were in the office.
  2. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone service renders landlines obsolete, saving time and money by replacing in-person meetings with video conferencing when possible.
  3. With the additions of Ethernet ports, companies enjoy resilient and strong WiFi signal that supports multitasking across internet applications without service arbitrary data cap limitations, ensuring that businesses can operate at consistently high speed.
  4. Greater security means that expensive security breaches are preventable thanks to more agile disaster response, which depends on speed. Fast backups ensure that companies can efficiently secure customer information and any other sensitive material at all times.
  5. Superior hardware comes with superior service providers, meaning that in the case of bad weather conditions, electrical interference, and physical breakdowns, issues are resolved swiftly, avoiding downtime and lost productivity.
  6. Increased efficiencies quickly absorb more direct savings than the initial installation cost.
