Hello Friends, Clients, Family, and Partners of Vital Voice & Data:
Thank you so much for taking the time to view our newsletter. Your ongoing support means the world to our team!
With the warm weather finally here, I hope you are all taking some much deserved time off in the sun. Before doing so, remember to ensure your business continuity solution is in place, and your emergency plan is ready to go in the event of another outage causing storm. For the 2013 Hurricane Season the NOAA is predicting 13-20 named storms -- 7 to 11 of them possibly becoming hurricanes, including 3 to 6 major hurricanes.
As your trusted technology and communications consultant I urge you to take a serious look at your business continuity plan. How important is it to you that your clients are able to get in touch with you, and NOT get a busy signal during the next power outage?
VVD offers customized business continuity solutions based on the needs of your and your clients. During the dreadful Hurricane Sandy thousands of businesses on the east coast were closed, but VitalPBX clients were UP 100% of the time. With an automatic failover plan in place, our clients:
- Received ALL calls if they chose to
- Received ALL voicemails via email and/or calling into their cloud-based phone system
- NEVER projected a busy signal or error message
- Forwarded calls to their answering service, cell phone and/or land line remotely and on demand
- Were able to contact us, even though our office was without power or connectivity for two weeks
- Had PEACE of mind
If you do not have a solution yet in place, we are here to help. Thank you again for being an important part of our organization. Enjoy our newsletter, and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
Dedicated to your success,
The Vital Voice & Data Team
