Business continuity is pretty important stuff. It’s all about keeping your critical business functions available to your customers and suppliers. The more uptime you have, the more business you can do.
If you do experience a power outage, or damage to your IT equipment for example, in this age of fierce competition you need to be back up and running as quickly as possible.
Much of the work to keep you trading successfully when problems crop up, comes from the preparation you do well in advance. Complacency – or an attitude of “it won’t happen to me” – can be dangerous commercially. Businesses have failed or massively stalled, from not having decisive business continuity strategies in place.
Do you have an IT crisis management plan? Do you have systems in place that can swiftly get your business back up and running in the event of a major glitch or set back?
If you can’t work from your head office for some reason – such as a fire, flood damage or a break in – have you got the ability to keep your business going remotely, from any location?
With proper planning and by using specialist IT support, business interruption problems can be tackled robustly and positively.
Purple Lattice IT consultancy support gets you prepared properly, and steps in to support you in an IT crisis.
Read on for more details of the IT business continuity services London organisations must consider, to protect themselves from everyday risks.
So, your email server has crashed. You can’t send or receive emails. What now? Periods of email downtime can severely disrupt your business. Luckily, you’ve got Purple Lattice’s bag of tricks on your side.
Get the right systems in place for email business continuity and you don’t need to miss any important sales communications or delay vital digital marketing campaigns.
How can that work?
As soon as your server goes offline, your email continuity server is ready and waiting for you to begin working on it – so you don’t lose any emails.
Then, reactivating your IT systems should be more straight forward too, with proper IT support.
This can start from auditing your IT assets and having a clear map of how your systems are structured. The more streamlined and lean your IT systems are, the easier they are to visualise. From this, if the worst happens, you can get everything back up properly updated and integrated much quicker.
This sort of visualisation and control of your IT network could also enable you to cut down on the number of devices you use, or integrate your software more effectively too!
A reduced and clear IT footprint provides costs savings, better management and easier upgrades, updates and critical patches. As well as smoother reactivation after business interruptions.
Do you have a clear idea of all the devices and software your team uses, how well they integrate and how to activate it all again after a “crash”?
Call in Purple Lattice, to provide IT support for transparency and control.
Fortunately, successful London businesses have a not-so-secret weapon in the battle to maintain business continuity.
They are already making the most of the advantages provided by Cloud technology.
So, a disaster happens at head office or your remote server site. What do you do?
Log on to a remote cloud system and continue to send and receive emails until the servers come back online.
Yes, it could be that simple, if you use our IT business continuity services London organisations need in a crisis.
Cloud management tools provided by Purple Lattice offer IT support, security and control on the good days too, as well as on the “challenging” ones.
No matter how much preparation and planning you do, to keep your business trading in a crisis, you’re going to have periods when you drop into an email “dead zone”, right?
No. Not if you use IT consultancy support that keeps emails flowing in every circumstance. And that maintains continuity and control.
Keep up to 90 days of email history within the remote system. You can reference sent and received emails. Say goodbye to lost email. And never “miss a beat” when it comes to communicating with all your stakeholders by email.
With our online backup solution, you can carry on working even when your server is down, by logging on to the online backup server. Neat, eh?
We all know how important it is to have transparent and precise data control and security systems.
Business interruptions and IT failures are not an excuse for noncompliance and your customers won’t accept that as a reason for losing their data!
Purple Lattice London IT services always put the spotlight on keeping your company within the law, as well in control of your business growth.
This includes vital business continuity IT services to smooth over the cracks and bumps in the road!
