Ever since 9-11 American business owners and executives have been thinking about disaster preparedness and recovery. The federal government is continually urging businesses to plan for business continuity in the event of catastrophic failures. Banks and other institutions are required by law to have a plan on file. But how do you plan to replace a telephone system or your telephone company lines when your world is turned upside down and services aren’t immediately available.
Disasters don’t have to be massive to impact your business. Regional events where all services are down, like hurricanes Harvey and Maria, or recent wildfires in California that have wiped out whole sections of real estate and businesses isn’t the threshold beyond which you need a plan. Something as simple as a burst pipe or power outage can idle your business and cost you a lot of money.
Performance Telephone Services continues to develop complete stand-alone and mobile communications centers that can be deployed in the event of a major disaster, and these products are perfect for state and federal agencies during major disasters, but any event that causes you to stop taking calls from customers is a disaster as well. That’s why we only provide telephone services that provides automatic backup and failover to the cell phone network when you need it to. These services are perfect for the small to mid-size business that may experience a broken pipe that floods the office, a building fire, or even a vehicle accident that takes out the utility pole that your phone lines or internet is on. All these things can effectively put you out of business for days and weeks.
