axon IT Warns Businesses to Act Now to Avoid Winter Disruption

Written by Anna on November 7 2011

IT solutions provider axon IT is advising local businesses to act now and get set up for remote working so that employees are able to effectively work from home in the event of another big freeze.

Technical Director at axon, Graham Fern, said: “There’s already talk of another bad winter ahead of us and when the snow falls, the roads gridlock and staff are stuck at home, businesses start to lose money fast. If companies act now and get set up for remote working through a cloud computing solution, they can ensure that productivity remains high and loss of earnings low, should we encounter another big freeze.”

Using cloud-based computing, businesses can put a remote workforce in place which enables employees to securely access and share company data, emails, calendars and contacts from anywhere with an internet connection – meaning they can work from home if the weather prevents them from getting into the office.

Microsoft technology also allows real-time communication between users via instant messaging, audio and video calling, live web conferencing and online meetings, while hosted telephony means business owners can receive calls made to their company telephone number, from anywhere they can connect to the web.

Fern concluded: “We strongly urge businesses to act now to safeguard against potential loss of earnings through the winter months. Remote working is simple to set up, cost-effective and offers increased flexibility and productivity while ensuring seamless business continuity.”
