What Are Slow Computers Costing Your Company?Slow computers aren’t just irritating: they cost your company increasing amounts of money as they continue to drag. It goes without saying that a computer that boots at its own pace or freezes regularly slows your employees down. There’s a quantifiable way to measure these costs: when an employee takes 15 minutes to perform a task that should take 5, you can put a number on the costs. Many organizations don’t realize that those costs extend beyond the time it takes to deliver a project. Slow computers irritate staff and suggest that their employer isn’t committed to helping do their jobs well. The extra five or ten minutes lost on tasks can cause workers to be less productive and engaged throughout the day.
5 Reasons Your Computers Are SluggishComputers slow down over time, but if you notice a marked decrease in performance seemingly overnight, then it could be one of these issues:
- Failing hardware
- Viruses or malware
- Too little RAM
- Not enough disk drive space
- Too many or too few software updates
