Phone System Crash Kits

As a workforce we are mobile and wireless. We communicate using email and LinkedIn. We rely on the Internet more and more. Yet despite all this new technology our office’s phone system is still the backbone of our communication.

But as integral as our phone systems are to our businesses, we don’t often treat them that way. We back up our servers and hard drives. We install alarm systems and sprinklers. We prepare for the worst case scenario, except when it comes to our main line of communication, our phone system.Phone Crash Kits

So how do we prepare for worst-case-scenario when it comes it our phone system?
Create a basic phone system crash kit, a back-up kit, a little insurance policy for your main line of communication.

Your Basic Phone System Crash Kit
Putting together a phone system crash kit in case of an emergency is one of the easiest and most cost effective things to do. It’s as simple as determining your most essential phone system components, ordering a back-up of each part, and keeping it on-site.

A basic crash kit should have:
1 processor
Key power supply/supplies
Key system circuit cards
Minimum 1 or 1% endpoints

Of course, the best crash/back-up kit for your office is going to depend on the type of business you operate, the size of your office, and your particular phone system. If you’re not sure what this means for your office give us a call and we’ll help you determine your phone systems most vital parts and what you would need to be back up and running if your phone system were to ever have a problem.

Plus, an added bonus of a crash kit is that most maintenance/service techs will offer a discount if you have on-site replacement parts because it saves them time and money as well as the headache of searching down parts and expediting them to your location.
