When the transport system stops, work doesn’t have to

Sadly, I’m old enough to remember when not getting in to the office meant not working, but we are lucky enough to live in an age where location doesn’t preclude us from accessing the systems we need to remain productive. 


There has been a lot of hype about this week’s abnormal weather but the fact is businesses should have a business continuity plan so that when staff can’t travel to the office the office travels to them. 


Our combination of cloud-based applications and private data centres mean that we are able to provide your staff with access to their phone and desktop from any location. 


As a 1 Tier Microsoft Cloud Service Provider, we can migrate your office applications to Office 365 and Azure. Moreover, as an ISP and data centre operator, we are able to ensure that anything you want to keep out of the public cloud environment can be securely hosted in one of our private data centre locations on equipment dedicated to your business. 


Not only are these solutions fully compliant with GDPR but we are able to support your users and ensure that your data is safely stored and backed up. This means that there is no compromise on the integrity of your sensitive information; we keep it safe, secure and available to your users from anywhere. 


Couple all of this with our provision of business-grade connectivity and hosted telephony for all sizes of business and you really will have the complete package to enable your business continuity even in the face of adversity.


Today’s issue is snow, however, there are many things that can prevent employees from attending the office so why not use this time to think about what the impact would be on your business if next time it’s not just a day or two but perhaps a week. 


Ask yourself this simple question: “Are you happy to take the financial loss resulting from lost productivity or do you want advice on how to enable your workforce?”

If you want to enable your workforce, call or message me. You may also be interested in reading this blog and guide: Avoid the impact of adverse weather conditions with cloud-hosted telephony.
