Should I upgrade my peer-to-peer business network to a server system?

I own a small business with 11 employees, about 13 computers and a half dozen or more other devices. We currently run a peer to peer network and all the machines are on Windows 7. Is it time I bit the bullet and upgraded to a server based system?

Is there a point where we will run into serious trouble if I delay this move any further? We are growing. I do have a good remote IT guy who could install and administer the system.
I've actually only ever worked in peer to peer environments, so I don't have a good sense of what the server environment will feel like.
I have a silent (ish) outside investor who asked me this question about the possible upgrade: "What problem are you trying to solve?" I had a hard time answering.
