We’re keenly aware of the approach of Hurricane Florence to the east coast – and particularly – to the Carolinas.
We don’t expect you to experience any downtime during the storm. Our support and engineering teams and our data partner stand at the ready to ensure you can rely on Jackrabbit for operating your business and that your data remains safe – even during impending disastrous weather. So don’t worry about your data – we’re all prepared to ride out the storm!
We’d like to share a few tips that will help you to continue to operate and communicate with customers throughout Hurricane Florence.
- Charge Up! Make sure your laptop, iPad, cell phones are stay charged. When/if you lose power, you want to be able to reach out and be reached.
- Go to Safety! Consider another location you can go to that has power and Internet access, if you lose access where you’re located. This could be a library or even a Starbucks in a neighbor that hasn’t lost power. Or perhaps you travel ‘inland’ to stay in a safer location with a relative who still has power. Your bonus is that you can login to Jackrabbit regardless of where you manage to jump on the Internet and continue working as if there was no outage!
- Know Your Passwords! Make sure you know your login information for applications/programs you may need to access from different locations, different computers using different browsers. The last thing you want to do is limit your ability to communicate or continue business operations because you don’t know your password!
- Pack a Light! Make sure an easy-to-access computer bag or purse contains a flashlight AND the batteries that it requires. Don’t be caught in the dark.
- Watch for updates! Our Facebook Business Page and Jackrabbit Software Users Group Page are the perfect places to watch for service updates.
- Reach out! Jackrabbit Support is here if you need us!
We hope we look back on Hurricane Florence and can each say “We dodged that bullet!” Our prayers and positive thoughts are with everyone – especially those directly in the path of the storm. Stay safe out there!
