Snow, ice, severe rain & gale force winds have brought many small businesses to a standstill in winter. In the last three years 2 out of 3 small businesses have been negatively affected by severe weather conditions, costing them hundreds of hours in lost productivity.

Read our top six tips on how technology can lessen the impact of bad weather in winter, keeping your employees working and business operational.

  • Cloud Services

    Using cloud services such as Microsoft Office 365 & OneDrive will enable your employees to access programs, files & documents from home, all they need is a computer and a fast Internet connection.

  • Video Conferencing

    ‘Face to face’ meetings can still go ahead with customers, fellow employees, suppliers & partners whether they are stuck at home or on a delayed train minimising disruptions and ensuring business continuity.

  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

    Employees can login anywhere on any device with an Internet connection to access a familiar desktop experience with all the programs, files & network resources they need to carry on exactly where they left off.

  • Voice Mobility

    Keep employees communicating effectively by connecting their devices to your communication system allowing them to forward calls & access UC features from their mobile when they are not able to get into the office.

  • Virtual Private Network

    Employees can take their company laptops home & make a secure connection via the Internet to the company network, giving them access to all the resources they are authorised to use on the network.

  • Remote Collaboration

    Skype for Business increases the effectiveness of video conferencing with screen sharing, presentation mode & file sharing features – share your entire screen, just a program or a PowerPoint presentation as well as giving control to other participants.
