Business Continuity

Man in flood with umbrella

Hundreds of businesses fail each year as the result of unplanned disruptions. But even in the face of compelling statistics many businesses fail to take the risk of disruptions seriously and they pay a heavy price.

We have a range of business continuity and disaster recovery solutions to keep your business working through any unforeseen circumstances.

Disaster recovery guide

Did you know...

  • More than half of organisations suffered at least one disruption during 2013 with extreme weather, staffing issues and loss of IT/telecommunications most often to blame.*
  • While 89% of managers recognised business continuity is a key responsibility, only 63% reported having continuity measures in place.*
  • In a Green Flag Breakdown research report in 2013, it was reported that British workers have missed 51.4 million working hours in one week as a result of poor weather conditions. Over 8.5 million (18 per cent) British adults were unable to work their contracted hours because of the adverse weather, costing employers an estimated £318 million.

Most disruptions are not the kind that make headlines. Public transport strikes, excavators slicing through cables, gas leaks, security alerts and localised power cuts are are much more likely to affect your business than anything more serious.

So what can you do?

Prepare - and that’s where we can really help. Our solutions can keep your business running, not just in the face of everyday contingencies but during major emergencies too.

Backing up important data, installing of UPSs, equipping staff with mobiles and laptops to work at home: these are all standard measures. But at Gamma we go further. Published telephone numbers are a case in point. We make sure your staff can still answer calls when they can’t get into work, when offices are out of action and even when the lines are down.

Thinking beyond the obvious is the key to business continuity and that’s what our customers have come to rely on us for. Many of our solutions - Inbound for example - are already business continuity enabled.

Most businesses rely on untimely call diverts whilst their customers are met with voicemail, an unanswered ringing signal or, worse, an unavailable tone. Our Inbound solution solves this issue.
