Did you know that 80% of businesses affected by some kind of disaster either never recover or close within 18 months of reopening?
Or that the average time it takes for a business to get back up and running after a disaster is 9.4 days?
Statistics like these are the reason Disaster Recovery is something all businesses should think about.
With Deep Blue’s InBound service, disaster recovery measures can be put into place quickly and at no extra cost. They can be set up in advanced and because they are controlled through an online dashboard, you can manage them from anywhere with an internet connection.
With the Automatic Failover features, you can put measures in place so that if there is a problem with the normal line, such as a fault, outage or damage, the system will automatically divert to your specified failover, such as a mobile or alternative landline.
You can also set up invoked plans so that if your office is rendered inaccessible, such as by heavy snow, roadworks or strike action, you can have your calls routed to another site at the click of a button.
Customers with InBound- Contact Pro also have the option of setting up a staff emergency number, which can be used to inform staff of the effects of any disaster. If your area is affected by something such as flooding or heavy snow, you can set up a recorded message on the emergency line which staff can then listen to, to find out if your site is open before making the journey there. This is also a useful tool for schools who can set the number up for parents to ring.
Disaster Recovery measures allow you to prepare for many of the obstacles that can hinder the running of your business. Floods and heavy snow are now common features of winter and cost businesses millions of pounds every year, severe roadworks and strike action which impede staff getting to your site can bring your business to a standstill. But with the features of InBound, you are always prepared.
Disaster recovery measures can be managed from My InBound. Simply log in, click the ‘Point my number’ tab and select ‘Manage my DR’ (bottom right of the window).
