When you get a new computer it’s lighting fast. That’s because there is seldom information running besides the operating system. As you load applications, programs, load documents, surf the internet for information, it continues to get loaded with cookies, history, additional start up programs, temporary items in your memory, and becomes slower over time.
If you wait for your computer for 15 seconds when you pull up a document or change screens then pull up a document or change screens 10 times an hour, there is a wasting of 1.6 hours a week. Which is significant, but when you translate that into time wasted per year that’s 86 hours a year wasted. That’s over two weeks.
Add in filtering through spam emails, maybe pop ups, hard drive full, memory shortage running slow and it could easily be more than 2 weeks per year. All of these things contribute to inefficiency in an office.
Your computer network is similar to your car it needs regular maintenance and technical support to continue to perform at it’s optimal speed.
