How long could your business perform if your telephone system or broadband went down? For some businesses even one day without telephone and internet services can often be fatal.
Power loss, equipment failure, supplier faults and damaged phone lines can and do occur on a regular basis. Therefore, having a disaster recovery plan in place that covers your phone lines and business broadband is a no brainer. Too many companies leave their main asset – their phones – unprotected. A disaster or even a small phone line outage could cost a company significantly, both in terms of revenues and reputation.
This is why businesses should consider the benefits of having a proactive telecoms DR plan ready to react within minutes during unforeseen circumstances.
Your staff may rely on their internet connection or telephone to do their job meaning your business may suffer serious financial losses whilst workers are idle and waiting for the service to resume.
A 2009 study from the Business Research Institute revealed that of all the recovery points necessary in the event of a disaster, 65% of businesses surveyed said telecommunications was the weakest link. Given the importance of the phones to a business, this is a surprising statistic.
