tables per company - why not

Hi,

Trying to help a friend out, but struggling to articulate why design is poor.

She has set up her database where each company has a set of tables (each set are identical but uniquely named).

This is obviously not normalized, but I'm struggling to communicate why she should go back and normalize everything.

Can anyone help articulate this?

thanks!
