Internet Telephony Conference & Expo East 2007

Technology Marketing Corporation announced that its INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO East 2007, taking place next month in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, will contain a series of educational sessions designed to help businesses maintain business continuity when natural disasters, or other disruptive forces, strike their area. The conference will be held January 23-26, 2007 at the Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

According to TMC President and ITEXPO Conference Chairman, Rich Tehrani, while the threat of disruption from hurricanes, and other natural disasters, is a major consideration for businesses in Florida and other Gulf states, businesses worldwide must be prepared for unforeseen events, including pandemics, that can potentially cripple their respective operations.

Hurricanes. Tornados. Earthquakes. Volcanoes. Snowstorms. Vandalism. An errant backhoe. A fire in a neighboring business. Business disruptions caused by these events can be very problematic when it comes to getting a business back up and running. This special panel discussion will focus on what you, as an owner or operations manager of an enterprise, need to know in order to prepare for the inevitable service disruption due to forces beyond your control, and what you need to do to keep your lights on, keep your phones operational, and keep your business connected.

The Disaster Preparedness Workshop is designed to help businesses create a safe, solid, and relatively easy-to-implement solution to ensure continuity of business in the case of a disaster of any size. Co-sponsored by the Enterprise Communications Association, this workshop will focus on the use of converged IP Solutions to seamlessly transfer vital functions and back up critical data, preventing loss and minimizing downtime during a business interruption of any nature.

This two-day workshop--held as part of the TMC's co-located Call Center 2.0 Conference--covers all the elements of deploying and managing a team of 'Home Agents'. Learn about the VoIP technology custom tailored to work-at-home environments, as well as hiring, training and other HR considerations.
