In a world where more business is being done over the internet than ever before and companies are looking at ways to improve productivity, gain efficiencies and work smarter, its more important than ever to ensure your connectivity has some form of backup.

There are some amazing automation products out there however if they are on the internet and not on premise, you'll need a reliable connection to use them. Likewise for paying suppliers, checking remittance, emailing invoices and general communication. All of these require some form of connectivity thus should your connection die, it could elevate stress levels in your workforce at best, at the worst it could affect your relationship with your clients and suppliers alike.

I have business internet with an SLA, the supplier will fix it quickly...wont they?

In most instances this is correct and good internet connectivity providers like Yellowbus have a rapid response team of engineers who can look at the issue quickly and resolve it, keeping your up-time to a maximum. In fact if your connection is provided by Yellowbus, we've already covered this topic with you but if your connection is from another provider, read on.

Most internet connectivity providers will promise to have you back online as quickly as possible and in some instances this can be minutes, in some instances this can actually be days. Think about it, what would happen if your workforce turned up for work and there was no internet connection. No orders would be coming in, if you've got a voip solution chances are you wont be able to make phone calls...quite literally your business as come to a stand still.
