Don’t Let an Internet Outage Negatively Impact Your Business

Natural disasters, infrastructure overload, and human error leave your business at risk of an internet outage. It’s critical to have a plan ensuring uninterrupted internet connectivity to prevent your operations from coming to a screeching to a halt during an outage event. An internet failover solution will keep your business online.

A study by the US Energy Information Administration found that in 2018 the average electric power interruption duration was 5.8 hours per customer. One in four companies experiences a power outage at least once a month at the cost of about $150 billion a year in lost revenue. Without a plan in place, you risk the loss of revenue in the following ways:

Productivity decreases: Employees can’t perform their duties while getting paid to wait for the internet to come back online.

Online sales stop: Customers are unable to access your site to place orders for goods and services. They will find alternative places to acquire the product.

Business-critical applications are inaccessible: Cloud delivered applications and information are not available and stall customer service operations.

Reputational damage: Customers who have a negative experience are likely to post about it on social media; that will, in turn, affect future sales.
