How Flexible Working Could Save Your Business from The Negative Impacts of Coronavirus?

How Flexible Working Could Save Your Business from The Negative Impacts of Coronavirus?

When it comes to Coronavirus, lots of questions remain unanswered. How contagious is it? Will authorities be able to contain it? Do we need to prepare to be hit?

One thing, however, is much more certain – Coronavirus will have a significant impact on businesses.  In fact, the Prime Minister recently announced that up to a fifth (6 million) of all UK workers could be off sick or having to self-isolate or have been required to remain at home.

For some businesses, this will be incredibly disruptive or in some instances catastrophic. For other, more flexible businesses, it’s much less of a concern. To help support your business Wi-Manx can work with you to help prepare for such instances:

  • How Prepared is your Business if you’re Impacted?

One of the most important challenges with business continuity planning is providing your staff with remote access to critical IT systems during prolonged periods of disruption. This normally includes email, finance systems, Payroll, CRM and general office documents.

We have years of experience in providing robust technology solutions that enable your business to continue operating in the event of a disaster (flood, fire, theft or pandemic).

  • How can a Wi-Manx Solution help Your Business?

Wi-Manx can provide your business with a solution that prevents business downtime and keeps business running as usual, so you never have to worry about the potential impact of a business threat such as a fast spreading illness that we are currently facing.

A Hosted Desktop solution from Wi-Manx can ensure your business critical systems are able to be accessed remotely, regardless of location.

  • How can you ensure business critical systems are remotely accessed securely?

Hosted desktop is a cloud-based IT solution. Cloud computing is the use of a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage, and process data – rather than a local server or a personal computer.

Hosted desktop is a service that allows businesses to carry out the majority of their computing using these remote servers. This means that authorised personnel can securely connect to their desktop – including all of the documents, programs and data they contain – from anywhere with an internet connection.

In essence, using hosted desktop, organisations are able to extend their businesses beyond their brick-and-mortar location, meaning it is straightforward for businesses to manage any potential threat by having remote working options in place. Therefore your business can operate if employees are unable to get to the office.The above services are a small element of the range of solutions to provide remote and flexible working to your business that are designed to mitigate or prevent the chances of unforeseen events disrupting your business, so you can continue operating effectively in any situation.
