Winter Snow 2019: Office closing, who will answer the phone?

Winter Snow 2019: Office closing, who will answer the phone?

Get a 08/03 number complete with Disaster Recovery plan to deal with your calls regardless of weather.

As heavy snowfall continues to sweep across the United Kingdom, employees face slippery uphill struggles just to get in to work. Bosses are having to give their staff ‘snow days’ as severe weather warnings cause further disruption to UK business. It is estimated that 66% of small and medium sized businesses (SME’s) were ill prepared for the recent effects of bad weather last year and reported a loss in revenue.

In some cases businesses have ceased to trade and as a result no one is answering client phone calls. Don’t miss out on sales calls because your team were at home on a ‘snow day’. Surprisingly we discovered that around 45% of SME’s have no business continuity plan in place to ensure they continue to trade in bad weather.

Tynan O’Hara our sales director said ‘snow can be fun, but causes problems especially in urban areas for those commuting any journey into work. With a live call plan, some of your team could work from home, answering calls, as if they were in your office, flexibility is gained from the use of virtual numbers.’ 

Get a free disaster recovery plan for your existing 08/03 number with dedicated operational support from our outstanding 08UK team today. At 08UK we succeed where others fail by having a dedicated operations team ready to make changes on your behalf, if you can’t get access to a pc.

Got numbers already? then your existing virtual number service provider should be making you aware of exactly what disaster recovery solutions are available to you, if any. Maybe this highlights where you’re existing 0800, 0330 or 0845 number service provider is failing you.

 If this is the case then contact us for free today on 0800 692 7000 so we can seamlessly move/port your existing virtual number service to our account seamlessly with zero downtime or loss of service. 


If you would like to talk to one of our team to get any point clarifying please do not hesitate to contact us. Call us now on 0800 692 7000 or email new@08uk.co.uk so we can call you back.
