In a deep freeze? Get work done without having to fight the storm

This week’s weather has proven that sometimes staying home is the smartest and safest thing to do. Fortunately for us in North Carolina, the weather has not been as disastrous as it has been in many parts of the U.S., but record-breaking cold temps have slicked up the roads and forced many school districts around Raleigh to delay opening by two hours. And for working parents, delayed openings and school closings combined with icy roads can make getting to work a challenge.

Lucky for me (and my family), I’ve got all the tools I need to work just as effectively from home as I do in the office. All my files are on ShareFile, so I can get to my work from any location, even if I’ve only got my phone or tablet on hand. And I’ve been joining meetings this week using GoToMeeting, so I haven’t missed a thing in the office. I keep all my reminders and to-do lists in Evernote and Notes, so I’ve even got instant access to all those sticky notes that used to clutter up my monitor in my office.

So if you’re stuck at home while the kids are home and the weather thaws, here’s some reading for you: download this white paper to learn how you can implement a cost-effective preparedness plan that can keep your business running through bad weather, unexpected work disruptions, and other disasters. With the right tools, you can prepare your team to work effectively and efficiently, even when the weather turns frightful.
