Every minute counts in a small company and wireless networks are a powerful tool for boosting productivity and encouraging information sharing. With untethered access to documents, emails, applications and other network resources, employees can roam where they need to and have constant access to the tools required to do their jobs.
Here are some of the ways businesses are taking advantage of wireless LANs:
Increased mobility and collaboration
• Roam without losing your connection.
• Increased mobility and collaboration.
Employees who use your wireless LAN can roam around your office or to different floors without losing their connection. Imagine everyone in a team meeting or in small conferences having access to up-to-the minute communications, and all documents and applications on your network. Similar is with using Voice over Wireless LAN technology.
• Connect to the information you need when you need it
• Provide better customer service
Customers want quick response to queries and concerns. A wireless network can improve customer service by connecting staff to the information they need. For example, a doctor in a small medical office can access online patient files while moving between exam rooms, or a retail sales person can check on available inventory necessary to write up orders on the showroom floor.
Better access to information
- Connect hard-to-reach areas.
- Improve your processes.
Wireless LAN's allow a business to bring network access to areas that would be difficult to connect to a wired network. For example, adding wireless access points to a warehouse can make it easier to check and manage inventory, providing the company with accurate inventory figures in real time.Desks can be moved and new employees can be added without the effort and cost required to run cables and wires.
