For modern businesses, there are plenty of responsibilities to juggle when it comes to the digital side of things. From cybersecurity to data storage, business owners have a lot to keep on top of if they are to operate successfully

Amongst all of this, things like network cabling can often get overlooked and forgotten about. When, in actual fact, this fundamental factor can affect the entire business and its day-to-day running 

If you’re guilty of sidelining network cabling as a core component of your business, read on to find out why it should actually be a top priority after all. 

Good cabling means good connectivity 

Starting off simple, the better quality your cables are, the better quality your connections will be. While it sounds obvious, badly-designed cabling systems can massively slow down your network and communications within it. 

This, naturally, has a knock-on effect on how fast your business can operate and how effectively your staff are able to communicate with one another. Nowadays, especially considering the necessary trend of working from home, it is a given that employees should be able to enjoy instant communication with their colleagues. 

What’s more, staff should be able to rely upon the company’s network speed to transfer essential client documents and work collaboratively with ease. Unfortunately, with poor cabling infrastructure, this is just not possible.

Can cabling improve client satisfaction?

In short, yes, it can. While we’ve explained how slow or old cabling infrastructure can hinder staff-to-staff communications, cable quality becomes even more apparent when clients are involved. 

When it comes to online chat or other forms of direct communication with customers, responsiveness can be a make-or-break factor in their doing business with you. 

How quickly your staff can respond to queries is a significant factor in client satisfaction, which, in turn, becomes a reputation hinge for your business. On the other side of the same coin, investing in a powerful, capable cabling system sets your business up for success — and sets it apart from slower competitors too. 

Save money on maintaining legacy cabling systems 

Another way that network cabling services can assist your organisation is by saving you money on maintaining legacy cabling systems. 

In our 20 years of experience, we have dealt with hundreds of different cabling systems, old and new. This has allowed us to recognise the value of installing up-to-date, reliable equipment as an upgrade instead of throwing money at outdated, slower cabling systems that are likely to fail sooner. 

Instead of investing money into legacy cabling systems, which are likely to have come from a one-size-fits-all model, designing and installing custom cabling solutions is far more effective. Just a few of the specifications we are proficient in include: CAT5e, CAT6, CATA6A, unshielded and shielded cable, multicore voice cabling, and even single mode fibre optics. So, wherever there is an opportunity for an upgrade, we can assist you with as little disturbance as possible.

Network Cables in a Switch

Networking cabling and capital 

Having a streamlined cabling system running beneath your business has a knock-on improvement effect on all other aspects of your company. From making logistics and administrative tasks quicker and easier to increasing your chances of customer retention, a strong cabling system can increase your business output significantly.  

As a result, your company’s profitability will also improve since you can afford to charge more for services that are head and shoulders above the competition.
