September was National Preparedness Month; did your business come up with a disaster preparedness plan for the year? Do you even know if you have one in place? If not, you may want to look into it. It’s important to be prepared for an emergency situation. For example, there might be a big snowstorm this winter and your employees can’t get to the office. You need the business to keep running, so you have a remote desktop set up. However, remote capabilities and mobile capabilities are two very different things. Mobility is a big part of our everyday lives, so mobile capabilities should definitely be put in place for your business.
Sure, you can work from home if need be from a desktop, but what about doing work on the city bus while you’re stuck in traffic? You’re not likely to get a connection and be able to work and connect with others in an efficient manner. However, Avaya has developed something called the Scopia Solution. Now, if you’re stuck in traffic on the bus and late for a meeting, you can still be a part of that meeting with video conferencing on Scopia.
Scopia is a program that allows no-interruption communication to and from any device. This is extremely important in terms of disaster preparedness, because those trying to connect, whether remotely or to a conference call can do so from anywhere. Using an LTE connection, Scopia makes sharing, and audio and video conferencing easy, whether you’re at home, at the office, or on the bus or train.
The main idea of Scopia is convenience. Users can connect from whatever device is most accessible to them, whether it is a laptop, iPhone, or Android tablet. Users can participate and communicate, can see everyone that has joined the call, can invite new contributors, can record a conference call, and so much more.
Scopia is a great program for businesses that need a plan in case of an emergency, or just need an update or addition to their already existing plan. Scopia allows businesses to continue running smoothly and allows employees and clients to connect despite outside obstacles. Not only is mobility convenient, it can also be very helpful in an event of an emergency.
