Hurricane Disrupting Communications? Online Video Conferencing Can Help.

Posted on September 19, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

10 years ago this week Hurricane Floyd impacted the east coast of the United States. Businesses were impacted from eastern Carolinas, northeast to New Jersey, and adjacent areas along the east coast into Maine. In North Carolina alone 15-20 inches of rain fell across the eastern half of the state causing many rivers to set new flood records. Entire communities were underwater for days, and even weeks. The infrastructure of the eastern counties such as roads, bridges, and water plants were heavily damaged.

If you own a business, how do you function when an office is inaccessible? Most disaster recovery plans suggest having alternative locations from which to work. Online video conferencing services from companies such as Vonei allow people to work from any location with broadband Internet. A computer with a webcam, speakers, and microphone can serve as an office-in-a-box, allowing employees to work from remote areas.

If you haven’t tried an online video conferencing service such as Vonei Meeting, now is a great time to get familiar with the tools. While you can sign up for service after disaster strikes, it sure makes sense to be prepared and have a service already in place and employees trained with how it works. Vonei offers 14 Day Free Trials of their 5-person Vonei Meeting service. Sign up today at
