INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Recent news of the potential for pandemic flu has caused many businesses to re-evaluate their emergency-preparedness and continuity of operations plans. The U.S. federal government’s National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza Implementation Plan cites the benefits of using telework and emergency office solutions to slow the spread of the flu by keeping face-to-face contact to a minimum and reducing required travel, while continuing operations as close to normal as possible. Officescape provides these same valuable Emergency Office services, to both public and private-sector companies, even if no plans were in place prior to an emergency.
Officescape has been providing these types of services for many years and has served many companies during numerous emergencies and natural disasters. In 2004, Officescape provided emergency office solutions to Authentium, a Florida-based security software company, to ensure continuity of operations when Hurricane Ivan threatened Florida’s coastlines. Officescape’s Emergency Office services focus on ensuring readiness of physical office and conference space, communications, data and computing. Including many of Officescape’s well-known telework services, Emergency Office provides the critical tools needed to ensure that a continuity of operations plan (COOP) is carried out effectively. If necessary, services for an entire telework force can be managed remotely and all essential applications can be based on a corporate server and imaged to the end-user, utilizing Officescape’s TelOffice Box thin client computing device, allowing employees to work anywhere, anytime.
Even in the midst of what may become a pandemic crisis, it’s not too late to setup and begin using emergency office or telework services provided by Officescape. Officescape’s emergency office services can be setup in as little as 24 hours, allowing employees to work from home, a remote office or from anywhere, anytime, whether during quarantine or outside of the flu-affected area. These services give employees the peace of mind to work from home during an uncertain time, reduce the risk of continued infection and also provide the essential tools to allow companies to maintain continuity of operations and productivity.
