24 Apr Beware and prepare: weather the seasonal business threats
Who was snowed out of their office during the ‘Beast from the East’?
We certainly were. But business must go on. Our team, equipped with their Horizon mobile apps, were able to continue working from the warmth of their own homes. Handling your calls just as they would if they were sat in the office.
In terms of maintaining productivity, the unpredictable British weather can be particularly challenging for many businesses.
Bad weather can test a company’s infrastructure to breaking point, often wreaking havoc on corporate communications. From broken phone lines to power cuts, a company’s hardwired communication systems are uniquely vulnerable to outside events. That’s before considering the impact of heavy snow or storms on employee attendance, with the UK typically experiencing 33 snow days each year. The recent flooding across the UK has also given us all a reality check on our vulnerability
With pioneering hosted phone systems eliminating the need for comms rooms, managed networks can keep your company operating at full efficiency, while less well-prepared competitors flounder in floodwater.
Uplands would love to understand more about your business and how we can help protect your business in situations like these.
