Business Continuity Disaster Recovery
BUSINESS CONTINUITY DISASTER RECOVERY
Now is the time to safeguard your business from storm-related impacts.
It’s the scenario that no business wants to encounter: an unplanned internet disruption. One minute, your business is thriving. The next minute, it’s at a standstill. Whether it’s the result of a winter storm, a hurricane, a construction contractor cutting through your lines with a backhoe, a carrier outage, or simple equipment failure, internet disruption can affect your business in a number of ways.
First, there’s the immediate loss of connections to voice and data services, leaving your employees flatfooted. You’re unable to respond to customers, complete projects, or meet deadlines. Inbound customer calls on your IP telephony system go straight to voicemail, where they remain unanswered. You’re also unable to access your cloud applications to generate invoices, which can hinder cash flow. In your customer-facing locations, point-of-sale terminals go dark, forcing your team to require “cash only” to complete transactions – potentially costing you sales and customer goodwill.
Quite simply, without the internet, your business grinds to a halt – sometimes for hours or days at a time. Whether you’re a retailer, professional or financial services company, public safety agency, healthcare facility, or virtually any other company that relies on internet for communication services – you know how debilitating that can be to your operations.
And when you look at the numbers, it’s clear that the affects are not just short term. Ninety-three percent of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster.
