How a Phone System Saved My Business
Real World Lessons in Business Continuity

Thursday February 21, 2013 2:00 PM ET/ 11:00 AM PT


Before Sandy, the term “Super Storm” didn’t even exist. While extreme storms pose a real threat to business continuity, everyday distractions like people calling in sick and local emergencies like power outages can wreak havoc on your company…so much so that you could be driven out of business.

Having a business continuity plan is now mandatory because without it, the odds of surviving the next disaster are slim.

What attendees will learn:

  • How to keep the lines of communication open with customers, no matter what
  • How to reduce risk without any capital investment in new systems
  • How to maintain or increase your revenue growth
  • How to stay in business, even after being hit by a super storm
  • How to enable all employees to work remotely
  • How to remain flexible and easily adapt to any business challenge
Who should attend:
  • Business Owners
  • CEO, CFO, COOs
