Are you forever carrying disks from one machine to another or maybe sitting at home having realised the report you need to correct is stuck in a locked office down town? Networking your system will allow you to access your data from anywhere whether it be a local network or a dial up system. 2 to 2,000 users can all be sharing the same system with individual security permissions. Simple dial-up networks may only need additional software which means the cost would be less than you initially anticipated.
