Blackberry Outage Highlights The Importance Of Having A Good Telephone System

Blackburn, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 26, 2011 -- Earlier this month, smartphone company Blackberry suffered a major outage from their data centre in Slough which saw users across the world unable to use emails and Blackberry Messenger (BBM).

This technological disaster meant many businesses were unable to function correctly due to reliance on receiving messages and emails on their smartphone throughout the day to contact business colleagues and clients.

The problems show the importance of not being too dependent on a single method of communication within a business in case of issues like this, and installing phone systems for small business [] could be a great way of ensuring that you can still effectively communicate with both internal members of staff and external clients across the world.

Although the phone systems of Blackberry were not affected by the outage, companies who needed to communicate with people overseas found themselves running up large phone bills by calling internationally from mobile phones. Having telephone systems for small business [] could have helped reduce this expense, as calling internationally from a landline is much cheaper than using a mobile.

Installing a new telephone system is a worthwhile investment, and the experts at Abbey Telecom can install and maintain a new system for less than you may think.
