Unified Communication as a Service… Move Your Voice to the Cloud – Get DR and BC at No Cost!

Businesses are investing in Cloud Voice for a variety of reasons, including cost savings, mobility, scalability and the desire to shift financing from CAPEX to OPEX.

Others are taking Cloud Voice a step further – not only adopting UC as a Service (UCaaS) for its collaboration tools, but for its built-in disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC) capabilities as well.

When you think of how important communications continuity is to your business, moving to UCaaS is a very smart move, especially when the platform already relies on a resilient cloud infrastructure. Trying to replicate this internally would require a redundant PBX and a duplicate cluster of UC servers at a backup location, in addition to paying monthly carrier fees to maintain network connections to that site.

Supporting Daily & Emergency Communications

When you incorporate UCaaS into your daily operations, you also cover your emergency communications. Using the same UCaaS tools for daily operations and disaster situations also means your users and IT staff won’t have to worry about getting familiar with a backup system in the middle of a crisis.

With UCaaS, no matter where you work or what device you use, you have access to the same set of collaboration and communication tools. When a local emergency shuts down your building, your team can work offsite without interruption. Communications continue seamlessly, regardless of the type or duration of the disaster.

Worried About Staying Connected When the Next Hurricane Hits? UCaaS Has You Covered!

Any number of threats can take your business offline, including floods, road closures, fire and other disasters. When your people can’t get to work, your operations can come to a grinding halt and the collateral damage from your unexpected shutdown can be severe.

In addition to the pain of lost revenues, your customers may find alternative providers and your public image can take a hit.

Paying for expensive redundant services can help mitigate such calamities, but with Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) you’ll get a built-in Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery plan – without the extra cost.

Today’s voice systems and services are more powerful than ever and are designed to safeguard your business from a range of contingencies. As long as your team has UCaaS, smart phones and wireless data, and/or laptops with access to WiFi, they automatically have the essential elements of a DR plan.

Equipping your team members and contact center reps with their office tools and apps – as they seamlessly work from a remote office or home – will enable your business to withstand virtually any local emergency that shuts down your building.

Let’s get ahead of the next hurricane or disaster before it arrives and talk about exploiting UCaaS for your business continuity plan. Contact TCI today: (703) 321-3030 or info@tcicomm.com.

 

 

Hey, Did You Know TCI Offers Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Service?

What happens if you lose access to your business data – for an hour, for a day, for a week, or forever?

Depending on your business, the answer may vary, but it’s not something you want to experience to find out – especially if it can be avoided.

Prevent the unthinkable…

Critical elements of disaster planning include:

  • Identifying risks, threats and exposure before it’s too late
  • Determining appropriate risk reduction, remedies, and alternatives for systems and networks
  • Assessing the need for data protection measures, off-grid power sourcing, and secure off-site storage
  • Checking the feasibility of implementing telework programs to keep your business open during an emergency
