Computers are now used for essential job functions for almost all careers in today’s business world. E-mails rather than “snail mail”,Word and Excel files rather than paper, creating presentations, store files on a network server instead of filing cabinets. Todays worker doesn’t know what to do if there computer is down. The question always comes up; What did people do before computers?
Despite this heavy reliance on computers and advancing technology, many businesses ignore one very important issue: people’s productivity can actually be limited by poor network and computer performance. A surprisingly large number of companies rely upon outdated technology in their desktops and servers, which are hindering employee productivity.
One main deterrent leading to decreased productivity is large upfront costs sometimes associated with servers, computers, and other network equipment. What those businesses do not understand is the cost of relying upon old computers and network equipment and limiting their employees’ productivity actually costs them MUCH more in the end.
Computers can be expensive, but there are economical options for new computers, which will only run business around $500-600 per unit. That may seem like a lot to some, but it is important to consider the cost of the employee using the computer. An employee making $20 an hour, working 40 hours a week costs $41,600 a year, without any burden of course. If this employee is using an older computer, a very modest estimate is that the employee is losing more than 12 minutes per day waiting because of slow performance, possibly more. At 12 minutes per day, during a typical workweek, the employee is losing one hour of productivity. Do the math – at $20 a week, the company is easily losing $1,040 per year on only that one employee. That is more than the cost of a new PC per every year!
Even when faced with these facts, most business owners still prolong buying new equipment, especially with the health of economy in recent years.
