Constant changes throughout your company such as users adding devices and hardware to your network and installing new software without informing the appropriate staff members can leave you with an inefficiently operating network or even worse, can lead to breaches in network security.
Network auditing consists of mapping out all the devices and hardware running on a network, what operating systems are in use and what software is running on each machine. This information can be used to ensure machines and devices in the network are running optimally and efficiently. It can also be used to ensure that every user on the network is complying with company standards and the law.
It can be a huge challenge to keep track of whether your staff have everything they need to operate at 100%, whether it be software or hardware. It’s also difficult to know whether you’re getting the most out of your IT investments. We can perform in-depth analysis on the current state of repair of all the systems on your network and offer solutions as to what can be improved upon.
Another common challenge is trying to keep track of which software licenses are being used to their full extent, as you might be wasting money on underutilized software licenses.

This can be done by tracking software usage and coming to conclusions on what underutilized software can be removed or replaced. We can also offer advice on alternative software solutions for the tasks your staff need to complete.
