Keeping Your Business Running In Adverse Weather
Using the right technology ...
The British Winter is in full force this week with snow covering the country and high winds blowing drifts and blocking roads. So how are you keeping your business running in adverse weather conditions when your staff can't physically get into the office?
Keeping your business running in adverse weather is easy with the right technology!

There's a simple answer to this. Use the right technology to give them the access they need from wherever they are. As long as they have power and a signal, your team can keep on working, keeping your business running in adverse weather.
Here are a number of key ways we recommend:
The cloud is fantastic technology that extends your business network to the laptops and tablets of people working outside the office. Everything that an employee can do at their desk is available on their remote computer or tablet.
With cloud storage and software such as Office 365, being at home (or in the car, or at a client's premises) doesn't stop anyone from doing everything they need to do to keep your business running.
Gamma Horizon VOIP phone system
An integrated VOIP phone system allows you to integrate desktop handsets and mobile phones in the most efficient way. With a Gamma Horizon solution, provided by CMC, you'll never get caught up between your voice provider and your data provider as we'll take care of it all for you.
As the system is managed by our in-house team, numbers and access can be provisioned quickly and easily and the Gamma Horizon system is future-proof as product development is managed by us.
Did you know that mobile phones can provide WiFi hotspots for your employee's laptops and tablets? When you need data access 24/7 then you need the right SIM cards and tariffs to ensure a cost-effective solution.
CMC works closely with Vodaphone (as well as other providers) and can offer you the latest 4G solutions to ensure quick and consistent access to your business networks via VPNs and in the cloud.
Laptops and Tablets
To ensure quick and easy access to your business networks your staff need the right laptops and tablets. And depending on what they need to do with them will tell you the power each of these devices needs.
And how about having 4G data access built-in? There are now laptops and tablets that have mobile technology built in to ensure your employees are always connected, whether they are in the office or, thanks to adverse weather, working from home.
Of course, these solutions are not just limited to keeping your business running in adverse weather when staff can't get into the office.
You can implement them for use around the year and you'll be surprised at how efficient your business can be when you use the right technology.
