Business Continuity Applications for Effective Business DR Strategy
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning
A large number of factors can affect Business Continuity from infrastructure failure, staff activity, and external influences such as natural disasters. Commonly business will have data backup in place but little else.
Communications failure, whether due to internal failure or external network outages, is often overlooked. With the increasing complexity of communications systems and the demands on in-house comms systems and on the networks, telecoms failure is an increasing factor in business continuity.
Communications failure is a negative influence on customer satisfaction and can be costly in terms of both sales and ongoing reputation.
X-on's 999Alert suite of telecoms backup and business continuity services will ensure that any failure in communications, internal or external, is overcome and inconvenience to customers is minimized and they are kept informed of progress during the recovery process.
The 999Alert suite of products ranges from off-the-shelf information services, to bespoke systems which integrate with existing in-house DR infrastructure. They can be fully automated or involve live staff interaction, with 24/7 availability.
999Alert Suite of Business Continuity Products:
