Hurricanes are a Powerful Reminder to Be Prepared

This month we’ve watched Harvey and Irma hit our neighbors to the south. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as they begin to recover. Unfortunately, tropical storms are a fact of life in our area too.

MABC makes it easy to set up Voice and Data arrangements that will keep your staff connected to your customers - even if your place of business is inaccessible during or after a disaster.

Keeping your people and your clients connected has never been more important – or more complex. You may have people working at home or on the road. Your business might have multiple locations.

MABC experts can provide hurricane protection when you need it so your business can keep your customers happy. While competitors scramble to find alternatives until the weather clears, it will be "business as usual" for you.

What Phone System is Right for You? Cloud, On-Premises, or Best of Both

Traditional, on-site phone systems remain popular, but the lure of Cloud Voice is strong. 

Some of the reasons why On-Premises phone systems remain popular... 

  • The need to control technology in-house.
  • The need for customized features or integration with other applications.
  • The need to depreciate equipment costs over time.

Cloud arrangements have emerged as a good fit for many small and mid-sized businesses, or larger enterprises with remote offices... 

  • Flexibility to scale up or down
  • Connects mobile or remote workforce
  • Ease and speed of adoption
  • No-cost, instant system updates

Some multi-site businesses are now deploying a mix of both... 

  • An on-premises system at headquarters and Cloud services for their remote offices – all interconnected and centrally managed. 

Technology keeps changing… Schedule a planning meeting to make sure you're exploiting the best approach for your business communications. Contact us today at Portsmouth: (757) 673-2200, Richmond: (804) 273-6500 or email .
