Microsoft Lync & Disaster Recovery

If your business was flooded or the office burned down, do you have the systems in place to get your business back to ‘business as usual’ quickly?

Without a disaster recovery plan it could be weeks or months before your business is back up and running. In fact research shows that 40% of small businesses never reopen following a disaster. With this in mind, it makes sense to have a plan in place.

Unified communications should be at the heart of any disaster recovery plan. Here at Communications Solutions UK we’ve put this into practise. All our staff have laptops, headsets and use Microsoft Lync. So were we to find one day that we have no office to work from, we’ll still be able to provide you with the same high level of service that you would expect. Lync allows us to communicate and see who’s available as easily as if we’re sat in the same room. If you were to adopt Lync and the Microsoft Office 365suite, which we’ll cover next week, you’ll have a disaster proof system that will keep your business running through most crises.

Of course we all hope that our disaster recovery plans will never be put to the test, but with UC offering so many benefits, this should be yet another excellent reason to make the move to a unified communications solution.
