Why you need a business wireless survey…
For many, the start of a new year brings a new resolve to make things better in both our home and professional lives. It’s a good time to take a look at your work to-do list and address any issues that may have been on your mind for a while. Business wireless is an area where many companies need to make improvements and booking a business wireless survey is a quick and simple way to get started and make a difference.
Here are just a few reasons why you might need a business wireless survey:
- Staff are complaining that their internet connection isn’t working as well as it should be and it’s slowing them down
- You could have just one location or team in your business where the wireless isn’t effective, or it could be all of your buildings
- Visitors arrive and are unable to log on from hot desks or meeting rooms
- Everyone is getting frustrated with the wireless and it just needs to be fixed asap
Any negative effect on productivity that results in downtime or staff working more slowly than they could be needs to be fixed ASAP and the start of a new year is the perfect time to just get it sorted. Plus, booking a business wireless survey takes just a few minutes, and when it’s all done, your life will be far easier too. Think about the reduced support calls, fewer complaints, and an improved positive perception of IT systems at work.
Why is your business wireless failing?
There could be many reasons why your business wireless isn’t working effectively. Maybe your business has grown and your existing set-up can’t cope with the extra traffic. Maybe your access points are not positioned correctly; your hardware might be the issue; staff are using the wireless for large downloads; or other devices are piggybacking and disrupting your connection.
Whatever the reason/s may be, it will take time, consistency and patience for you to uncover the facts and this is probably time that you just don’t have.
This is where a business wireless survey can really help. Within just one day, a survey can assess your site and tell you what’s going wrong and where. You can just pay for the survey and make the necessary improvements yourself or you can ask your business wireless survey company to make the improvements for you, making it far quicker to get everything fixed. Just imagine – within a matter of weeks your business wireless could be completely sorted and you can move on to the next job on your to-do list.
What’s involved in a business wireless survey?
During a business wireless survey a specialist team will usually walk around your premises identifying strong and weak areas of wireless connectivity. Following this, they will provide you with a useful heat map that shows areas that need improvement and areas that are working efficiently. Based on the results of the heat map you can make your decision, also taking your budget into consideration. The remedial action is usually one of the following:
- Fix or extend the existing wireless provision yourself
- Ask the experts to fix or extend your existing wireless provision
- Uninstall what you have and start from scratch yourself or with help from the experts
