Don’t Rely On Email When An Outage Strikes

Communication is key in a system outage. Downtime is unproductive time – and a huge cost to the business.

Informed employees stay busy at their desks – not calling your Helpdesk. IT teams can focus on resolving the incident.

Relying on email during an IT outage is too big a risk. It’s not suited for urgent communication, it’s ignored by staff, and it isn’t effective when the pressure is on.

Network outage notifications that avoid email help resolve incidents faster. And enhance your IT team’s reputation across the organization.
