What’s internet downtime really costing you?

More and more companies are moving to the cloud. With business applications being online and more accessible, how are you ensuring that your business is always online to avoid costly downtime?

Thinking about your business, what online applications are you using?

  • Accounting – Xero, Quickbooks, MYOB and Microsoft Dynamics
  • Email & Collaboration – Microsoft Office 365, Google Apps for Work, Skype for Business, Google Hangouts
  • File, Sync & Share –  Dropbox, OneDrive for Business, Autotask Workplace & Sharepoint
  • Online Meetings – GoToMeeting, Webex, Zoom and Skype for Business
  • ERP – Pronto, Microsoft Dynamics, Netsuite, SAP Business One, Sage and MYOB EXO

How are you protecting your business connectivity from downtime? Many businesses I speak to have not thought about their connectivity to their core business systems. The cost of not having good connectivity for both a primary and backup could cost your business tens of thousands of dollars.

What’s the real cost of downtime? 

  • 10 Staff for 4 Hours at $30/Hour = $1,200
  • 20 Staff for 6 Hours at $40/Hour = $4,800
  • 30 Staff for 8 Hours at $50/Hour = $12,000
