The processing power, stealth and streamlined efficiency of network communications have revolutionised the way successful businesses operate. Remotely and on-site, super fast network infrastructures have proven to be the biggest single factor in maximising productivity whilst minimising operational costs.
Here we discuss 5 financial benefits that businesses large and small are seeing as a result of migrating to a hosted Internet network.
1. Hardware Costs
Running an outsourced network infrastructure as opposed to an internally managed network, creates significant cost savings both up-front and over time. Capital costs of running and maintaining your own network can be high. They grow even higher when trying to keep up with IT demands by purchasing, deploying and supporting the latest advancements in hardware. Maintaining IT efficiency in-house becomes a waste of budget. A hosted network will keep you ahead of competition with a network that remains the quickest in your niche because it utilises the best technology stack.
2. Optimum Performance
A speedy network allows your business to respond instantly to any request, from any source. Such real-time delivery of services creates extensive revenue opportunities. Providing connectivity that is exclusive to you and your client base, maximises the speed and throughput of network traffic, saving money on administration and minimising operational bottlenecks. This opens sales pipelines, aids real-time support and means logistics can run with optimum efficiency.
3. Power Saving
Running your business across a hosted network creates huge cost savings in energy consumption too. Servers, cooling systems, communications infrastructure, etc. all require considerable amounts of power to operate efficiently. Using a network infrastructure that is managed and maintained off-site is a green solution that better meets government standards and doesn’t incur a huge energy bill.
4. Dedicated Bandwidth
Only dedicated hosting providers are able to deliver continuous network coverage with optimum speed and resilience. In this regard be careful when choosing a network host because many run shared servers and limit bandwidth to cut costs. This is to the detriment of your business.
Running a dedicated Internet network, your business alone reaps the benefits of maximum possible speed, agility and performance. This gives you the best value from IT, saving considerable expense too in recognising and alleviating potential traffic jams and latency that only you could be causing. This means all manner of information and payment transactions can be delivered in real-time, all the time.
5. Keeping You Covered
Companies that run their own network or outsource to many traditional hosting providers typically have the added expense of needing backup and disaster recovery systems that require extra resource scheduling. With a dedicated hosting provider, the maintenance and resilience of your network becomes an external set of tasks and failsafe operation. It saves you a great deal of time and expense NOT needing to invest in these areas.
Online competition is heating up. More and more companies are embracing the digital marketplace – from a basic web presence to a fully-fledged ecommerce store. To deliver the fastest service for customers and maximise the performance of staff, you need a dedicated network that is fast enough to counter the challenges of running a business online. Doing so will keep you head and shoulders above your competitors, attracting higher numbers of visitors to your site, streamlining processes and engaging key stakeholders in real time. All of which creates huge sales and revenue generating opportunities, instantly and consistently over time.
