British publications have predicted 100 days of snow, which could have a very detrimental effect on the economy. Is your business set up for remote working?
If your staff can’t get into the office the predicted snow fall, remote working shouldn’t affect your IT infrastructure and your ability to work.
Forward thinking organisations are safe in the knowledge that when there is extreme weather, they have systems in place to ensure continuity for key staff. Technologies from Microsoft and Citrix set up with VPN connections, allow remote workers to access to send and receive data as if they’re locally connected to the private network. This could be for access into the organisations accounts, CRM, email and telephone calls allowing remote workers to function as they would in the office.
Extreme weather (especially heavy rain) can also result in localised flooding. Again some kind of contingency must be put in place for a situation like this. Moving the server environment from a traditional on-premise model to hosting off-site in a secure data centre which is both secure in itself and able to transfer data to other secure sites at a moment’s notice, is a vital part of any disaster recovery plan.
CSG can advise your business on solutions that deliver your applications and telephone calls to any destination, so that your business can offer the very best service for your customers.
