I understand the advantage of adding contacts to companies as a means of ensuring a consolidated view of all contact points within a company.
However contacts dont have to be linked for this to happen.
It isn't clear to me what the purpose of linking a contact to a company is. What is the advantage of doing this? What is revealed in either contacts or companies when they are linked together?

I use both quite a lot.
I make all the staff at a company a member of that company,
but I will link their IT support person to that company, even tho he is a member of a seperate company.
This allows me to go to company ABC and see that contact1, contact2, contact3 are staff and that contact4 works elsewhere but is the IT guy.
