Webinar Description 

If you were to turn off all the electricity to your organization's offices, what would happen? Could you still operate your nonprofit or library? View our webinar for a discussion about taking your organization virtual and what you can do to become less dependent on internal IT and in-house systems.

We discuss how hosted services and platforms, such as hosted phone systems (VoIP), virtual servers, and software as a service can ensure that your phones are still ringing, your data is still accessible, email is still flowing and your business applications are functioning if you lose power. Learn how to fully function from any location even if your organization is dark.
