Cloud software & outsourced services are winter weather-proof solutions

Prepare for snow day with Quill

There’s severe snowfall across the UK today which means travellers face extensive delays and disruption on their commute to work. With gridlocked roads due to snow and ice, journeys are taking much longer than usual, and the Met Office is advising drivers to take particular care in deteriorating conditions and avoid travelling altogether if possible.

To further add to the chaos, some airports are closed, tram lines are down, rail services are cancelled and schools are shut for the day, thereby putting extra pressures on commuters who have limited alternative means of travel and childcare responsibilities to contend with.

At times such as these, it’s worth remembering the benefits of cloud software and outsourcing services. The former can be accessed from anywhere and the latter continue uninterrupted, whatever the weather.

Choose from Quill’s weather-proof solutions this winter:

  • Interactive: 99.9% uptime, 247 remote access to your matters, data and documents with our popular case management, legal accounting and document management system.
  • Pinpoint: Automatic back-up if your outsourced cashier’s snowed in at home gives assurance of round-the-clock cashiering provision.
  • Type: Document production’s kept on track with our typing service whereby expertly typed-up documents are saved straight to your Interactive library.
  • Payroll: With constant service provided as standard, make sure your staff still get paid and pension contributions uploaded, even when your employees are stuck at home.
