This is why the weather should be the least of your worries this week…
If you’re like one of the many businesses across the South-East, your staff may not have been able to make it into work this week due to the poor weather.
For many organisations this caused major disruption, with staff not being able to access their systems, or even make and receive phone calls.
The reality is that weather like this is not common in this country, but it’s just one example of a disaster scenario that could stop you from working effectively. The next time it could be a fire, flood, power cut or maybe even that your servers have failed.
The key is planning for these events to avoid losing productivity and sales. As part of their business continuity plan, many companies are turning to the Cloud to offer better resiliency and availability of their systems.
If you’ve struggled to communicate with your staff and customers, a VoIP solution could be the answer. Our VoIP solutions utilise cloud-based phone systems meaning you can make and receive company calls from any location with no dependency on your offices.
Office 365 is another key element in facilitating remote working. By moving your e-mails to Exchange Online and data to SharePoint Online, you can securely access your e-mails and documents from any location on any device.
An added benefit of using Office 365 is the ability to work collaboratively on documents and communicate internally using Teams to work on projects, and Skype for Business for video conferencing.
If you’ve struggled with working remotely this week, it may be a good opportunity for you to review your disaster recover plans and options for using the Cloud.
