What Would Happen If Lotus Notes Just Stopped Working: The Importance of Support

If your business is running an IBM Lotus Domino server, chances are it also runs IBM Lotus Notes clients. It’s powerful, flexible and boasts fantastic collaborative features – as long as it’s working.

Sure, Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino may be reliable and secure, but it’s important to be prepared for the unexpected. Should your server or client develop issues, the downtime could have serious ramifications for your business.

But it doesn’t have to be like that – not if you have robust Lotus Notes support in place.

Life IT (www.lifeit.co.uk) are experts in providing IT solutions for a wide range of infrastructures and environments, including IBM Lotus Domino and Lotus Notes. Here’s their reminder for you of just what you’d lose if your Lotus Notes client went down – and how it can be avoided.

Lose email and you’re cut off from the world.

Over the last decade, email has replaced the telephone as the dominant method of B2B communication. At day without email may sound like bliss – until you think of the money your business could potentially lose. For this reason, you’ll want to do as much as possible to keep Lotus Notes up and running.

Productivity without productivity software? Not gonna happen.

How long could your office survive without access to its niche applications before everything grinds to a standstill? If Lotus Notes isn’t functioning properly, it could prevent your internal systems such as timesheets, expenses & CRM from running – blocking access to much-needed information.

Do you know how to contact your contacts?

You probably use Lotus Notes to manage your contacts, so unless you’ve got a dusty old Rolodex as a back-up, if Lotus Notes goes down you could be without vital contact details. Remember, disruptions to communications steal time from your day – which might as well by stealing money from your bank.

Avoid disruption with expert support

Whatever you’re using Lotus Notes for, you won’t want to be without it for a second of your working day. For this reason, it’s essential to have comprehensive Lotus Domino and Lotus Notes support in place.

Having a professional IT supplier monitor your server and applications means potential issues will be identified and resolved immediately, keeping you up and running and reducing the risk of loss of data – and loss of money.

Lotus Notes support and monitoring when you need it with Life IT

Whether you need office hours monitoring or round-the-clock support for your Lotus Notes set-up, Life IT can help. They’ve worked with businesses across the UK to provide support for Lotus Notes, Lotus Domino servers and a wide range of other infrastructures and environments. And if you need bespoke applications, they’ll develop them to your precise requirements.
