5 Reasons to Include SERVPRO in Your Company's Disaster Recovery Plan
Roughly 40 percent of businesses that experience a disaster are unable to reopen. Of the businesses that do reopen, a quarter of them close within a year following the disaster.
Fires, floods, storm damage, and mold damage are all common types of disasters that can happen to any business. These may seem like unavoidable events. However, there is something your business can do to protect itself in the event of a disaster.
It is critical that your business has a disaster recovery plan in place should you experience any major business disruptions.
Here are the top 5 reasons why your business needs a disaster recovery plan with SERVPRO.
1. Reduce Your Revenue Losses
A reason why so many companies fail to reopen after a disaster is that they were unable to earn any income in the days, weeks, or even months following the disaster.
Businesses without a disaster recovery plan have no easy-to-follow plan on getting operations running again once a disaster hits. They experience major unexpected costs in the clean-up process that can deplete their funds quickly.
By having a disaster recovery plan in place with SERVPRO that you can implement rapidly after a disaster, you can minimize your revenue losses.
2. Get Up and Running Faster
After a disaster, you need to get your operations back up to speed. By having a disaster recovery plan in place, you can focus on the high-impact areas that can help you start earning revenue again.
For example, the faster businesses restore water damage, the sooner they can reopen to customers.
3. Maintain Strong Company Reputation
One of the most important things to a business is its reputation. Reputation is everything when it comes to keeping old customers and gaining new ones.
If your company is unable to deliver on promised services following a disaster, you are more likely to lose your valued customers.
Having a disaster recovery plan with SERVPRO also communicates to customers that come rain or shine, your company can be trusted to continue to provide great service, no matter the circumstances.
4. Increase Flexibility and Scalability
A great benefit of having a disaster recovery plan with SERVPRO is that it is extremely customizable to fit your unique needs.
If you are more likely to experience mold damage than a flood, then you can adjust your needs with a service provider when developing your plan.
5. Prioritize Cost Effectiveness
At the end of the day, the greatest benefit of having a disaster recovery plan is that it is the most cost-effective option for your business.
It allows you to prioritize your spending in places where it can help you get your operations up and running faster while maximizing customer retention.
