Train strikes & bad weather: keep your business running effectively

train commuter

With wet, cold weather to come this Winter and more strikes planned, it’s time to prepare for disruption.

Here in the UK, we’re not blessed with amazing weather all year round, nor are we blessed with reliable train services.

Imagine waiting for your train, ready to start a busy day jam-packed with emails and calls. Then, the announcement is made. Your train is cancelled. You can’t get to the office – the only place you can access your desktop – and the stress begins to pile up. What do you do? Do you just go home? Do you wait hours until the trains start running again?

Train strikes and weather disruptions are a nightmare for those who can only access everything they need from the office.

With plummeting temperatures and predictions of snow and wet weather this Winter, we all know what this leads to – more travel disruptions. The two go hand in hand. The weather can make the everyday commuter’s life a little bit harder. So, what happens when the weather takes a turn for the worst and you can’t get to your office, or you office is damaged?

There’s a very simple yet effective way around these obstacles, to make sure your ability to help your customers is not affected by things out of your control. The solution is the Cloud.

More and more businesses are opting for the Cloud and there are many reasons why.
