Network outage problems cause a marked decline in business productivity and revenue. Most business applications are network enabled. From email and inventory management to customer service and financial management applications, when the network goes down, aspects of your business grind to a halt and cause a ripple effect across the company.
Common causes of network outages include configuration issues, human error, poor network design or maintenance, and security misconfigurations – among others.
You must take a proactive approach to monitor, prevent, and mitigate against network outage problems. A professional IT management team gives you optimal network uptime and minimizes the burden on your business – freeing you to focus on doing what you do best.
According to one estimate, small to medium-sized businesses can lose more than $3000 per day when suffering from network outages. Larger businesses can suffer losses amounting to over $150,000 per hour! Simply put, businesses live or die on connectivity.
Outages diminish your business reputation among customers and make them lose trust in your business. This situation makes it harder to cultivate and retain clients. Slow internet connection as a result of network issues leads to a spike in customer complaints, frustration, and low morale among employees.
