From our guest blogger, David McDonough, President of Modern Image Atlanta: “Disaster Preparation” is not just for hurricanes and tornadoes.
How did the weather impact your business last week? Were you prepared to be out of the office for several days? The entire country watched in shock as Atlanta came to a halt over a few inches of snow and ice. Thousands of people spent hours, if not overnight, stuck in traffic. The remainder of the week was equally as disruptive as authorities cleared roads, reopened schools and businesses and tried to get back to ‘normal’. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the ice storm and gridlock that crippled metro Atlanta will likely cost businesses and individuals in the hundreds of millions – if not billions – of dollars, based on economic models and past events.
How many days did you miss from work? What will it cost you? It doesn’t have to be that way!
A paperless office environment with electronic files and remote work capabilities can prevent you from this type of disruption in the future. Files scanned to a secure cloud environment can be accessed anywhere, at any time, allowing collaborative work from remote locations. Don’t be caught unprepared in the future. Let us help you plan for disruptions so that you can be productive, no matter the circumstances.
