Hurricane Sandy's Effects Felt Far and Wide
Many people may not know this, but Inphonite basically got its start on the East Coast. So when Hurricane Sandy hit, the reverberations were felt in Tucson as gust after gust and wave after wave claimed our customers’ businesses and homes.
Several customers contacted us as the storm came near, to work with our technicians and developers individually to set up some last minute Emergency Messaging. Our technicians were already on red alert for weeks helping our customers set up emergency broadcasts for their customers, patients and staff. There have been more office closures and cancelled appointments running through InphoniteVoice than ever before.
Those customers with our on premise solutions were offered conversions to our SaaS model to ensure that their messages would go out over the internet, even while they were instructed to power off their machines, and ultimately lost power.
This is a truly sad time for so many. Inphonite wants to find a way to help. We have been brainstorming and in addition to a financial donation to the RedCross, we will be contacting our customers personally to offer some business IT assistance as they get their networks back online.
CUSTOMERS: If you live in an area that has been affected by this tragedy, we will be contacting you soon.
In the meantime, please know we are thinking of you all.
