The “What If” Scenario and How to be Prepared
With the recent advent of Hurricane Sandy in October, 2012, we at Vital Voice & Data experienced an influx of calls from businesses concerned with the back-up of their Phone and Data Network in the event of another disaster. Even a few hours of downtime can amount to thousands of dollars in lost revenue. In the case of Sandy there were days of lost transaction caused by the hurricane’s massive destruction. In response, we deployed a strategy to ensure that its client’s telephone network would remain intact, even if their buildings did not.
Recent surveillance from NOAA predicts another eventful hurricane season for the Atlantic coast in 2013. NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center is claims that there is a 70 percent likelihood of 7 to 11 hurricanes (winds of 74mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4, or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). If Sandy taught us anything, the time to start prepare for a disaster is now. That way when the next one does occur, you can focus on rebuilding your business, not your phone system.

It all begins with Hosted PBX, a VoIP-enabled business voice service that provides businesses with a complete telephone network via “cloud” technology. With a Hosted PBX system we can coordinate a backup plan in what is known as Call Failover. This feature acts as an insurance policy guaranteeing that calls to your business will always come through, even after an unexpected outage. Our HPBX network is cloud-based and is administered through a Web-based portal. We can set up the system to automatically re-route your calls to numbers that you designate in advance. The numbers you designate can either be landlines or cellphones. With call failover you’ll have the comfort and peace of mind knowing that your phone will automatically switch to the backup plan, allowing you to focus on other priorities.
