Albion Talk | Issue 2
Welcome to Issue 2.
Its fair to say the “B” word seems to be going on forever, however getting ready for changes has never been so important, especially if you work with customers in the EU. Whilst we don’t have the silver bullet to solve all your future requirements, what we do have is over 30 years of technical know how and access to a plethora of technologies which are set to revolutionise the way we all work.

One particularly spell of bad weather in February and March 2018, a result of freezing arctic temperatures from ‘The Beast from the East’ colliding with ‘Storm Emma’, was estimated to have cost the UK economy over £1 billion per day.
Our access to all the major networks puts us in the right place to solve your ever changing business needs.
Adopting VoIP in your business means that you can be at the forefront of communications technology for years to come.
With our Hosted Telephone Solutions we deliver business efficiencies and the latest VoIP technologies which helps in driving down costs whilst delivering you business flexibity and continuity in this ever changing employer/employee world.
In simple terms a hosted telephone system is one that sits in a network data centre (known as the Cloud) rather than at your premises. Users manage the system through a web interface or mobile app, and make calls over the service through their data connection. Hosted telephony means you no longer need to maintain and upgrade a PBX on site, or over multiple sites, and removes costly long term PBX maintenance

- Let’s your staff work flexibly from wherever they want.
It is critical to have a robust cloud-based phone system in place, allowing your business to maintain full productivity in the event of any unforeseen disruptions.
Rather than relying on fixed phone lines, which can become damaged or disconnected by storms, a hosted phone system moves fixed and mobile telephony to the cloud.
Failure to prepare is to prepare to fail
During adverse weather, maintaining normal channels of communication between staff and customers is absolutely essential for productivity and client relations, which can suffer greatly from downtime or disruption.
While your offices are being battered by storms, customers elsewhere could be enjoying normal working conditions and so could your competitors.
No place like home
Letting staff work from home brings many advantages, but it’s always better to plan for this eventuality in advance.
With the right infrastructure, your staff can be just as productive as they would be in the office and more importantly, customers won’t even notice the difference.
Full disaster recovery testing is important, but despite this, only a minority of businesses test their plans regularly.
This worrying attitude towards risk can mean businesses only realise if their plans work during an actual incident of disaster.
So….When it comes to disasters, not everything is out of your control.
