As I am sure we have all noticed winter is nearly
upon us. Long range weather forecasts are unilaterally predicting a colder than
average winter period.
Just take the time to stop and think this one
What was the effect of snow on my business last
How much were sales down?
How did my customers feel ? How did my staff feel ?
And so the list it goes on.
The ONS stated :
“The snow last winter knocked 0.5% off the economic
growth figures, which is a considerable amount of lost growth”
I am sure you would agree it is now time to plan. Maybe
you will stick your head in the sand or should that be the snow ? Maybe use “hope”
as a strategy that the winter conditions will not in any way effect your
Fear not, help is at hand.
So, for those who wish to plan and carry on doing
business in the face of adversity, talk to us at Connect…it.
We have a suite of “Business Continuity” products
for voice as part of our standard “Simply Better Business Telephony”
Notice we didn’t say disaster recovery, a very much
overworked phrase which immediately means to me that something has occurred
from which I must recover…..and that takes time…..how much time….Who knows?
Business Continuity however means exactly what is
says. Regardless of what may be a disaster to my competitors, I will be safe in
the knowledge that I can continue to do business!!!
As a famous scout once said “Be Prepared”, are you?
Call us to see how we can help you to help your
customers and staff through the winter period. You snow it makes sense !
