1CONNECTIVITY FOR THE FUTURE

BUSINESS CONTINUITY IS NOT ABOUT DISASTER RECOVERY, IT’S ABOUT KEEPING YOUR BUSINESS ONLINE (ALL THE TIME)

Strong connectivity resulting in business continuity is invaluable to business owners. From craftsmen to consultants, today’s businesses succeed with a fast and reliable connection to sell, manage projects, process payments, and most importantly, connect with their consumers. Plus, the modern work landscape isn’t the typical 9-5 anymore. It happens at night, on weekends, during nasty weather and through national emergencies.

 

While urban centers enjoy widespread availability of high-speed Internet service, much of rural America has yet to be connected. Satellite internet providers have the ability to deliver services where terrestrial based providers aren’t able to. Viasat has been providing high-speed connectivity across America including the hardest-to-reach locations for decades.

 

A single damaged cable can mean lost revenue, disrupted workflows, and a hit to customer trust. According to Forbes, simply losing the company website costs businesses an average of $100,000 per hour, while total internet failure can cost companies an average of $5,600 per minute. Additionally, disasters such as hurricanes can represent a small business’s worst fears: Damage to the business, paired with damage to the local community.

 

Business continuity isn’t a product to be bought: it’s a mindset; a dedication to keep the lights on, to keep customers satisfied, and to take care of employees through any challenge. On November 14, Cody Catalena of Viasat will discuss how high-speed and reliable internet connectivity correlates with a successful business. He will also discuss how satellite internet can help businesses ensure they are always able to remain connected.
