Your business may be affected by the bad weather in the coming months. Snow is already hitting parts of the UK causing disruption and outages. With more due over the next few days and weeks, an increase in late or even absent staff, as well as telephone lines and internet connections going down, will be costing companies £1000s in lost revenue.
Staff can be delayed or miss work due to cancelled or late running trains, dangerous driving conditions or even being snowed in. Productivity will no doubt suffer as a consequence and schedules will need to be adapted or changed.
Maintaining communication is crucial for staff and client relations for many businesses. When your office is down or struggling with the weather your customers or your competitors may still be up and running with no issues. You could be missing out on vital communications that could cost your business dearly.
“If we can’t get high-quality broadband or telephony services we can’t operate our business, it is a necessity. Communication is what we do for a living. If we can’t communicate with our customers, we can’t earn money. There are no holes in my communication strategy. I do not have to worry about anything or employ anyone – it is seamless.” Richard Kirk, Co-Owner of Be Curious.
