The Weather Outside if Frightful – Helping Your Locations Weather the Storm Shouldn’t Be
As I write this, a storm of potentially “historic proportions” is getting ready to hit the Northeast. Surely your first thoughts are about protecting the safety of your staff, customers and visitors. Ours are as well and we hope everyone is safe and that property damage and business interruptions are minimal. Once immediate safety concerns are addressed, business leaders who have been trusted with real estate management have an additional duty to understand the impact of severe weather on each location and sort through the obligations it entails. Here are a few ways that AMTdirect’s visualized location management solution can help.
Work from Anywhere
Government and public safety officials in many Northeastern states are urging residents to stay at home if at all possible. Fortunately, many key business applications, including AMTdirect are available online, making it possible to work from anywhere and still have access to the critical information you need.
Identify Impacted Locations
With our powerful mapping software, you can easily overlay current weather maps and weather prediction data from a number of sources and your locations. This makes it easy to identify and connect with properties in the hardest hit areas and focus your pre-planning and recovery efforts where they will be needed most.
Get Easy Access to Contact Information and Contract Terms
With AMTdirect, you can easily drill down into affected properties to find employee, vendor, maintenance teams and landlord contact information. What’s more, you can quickly assess who has contract obligations for pressing issues, such as snow removal, weather related property damage and insurance protections. Getting this information right way can help return your business to normal operations quickly.
If you are an AMTdirect customer and you need special assistance during this severe weather situation, please give us a call. If you aren’t and would like to learn more about location management during weather, or other emergencies, we’d love to chat. Either way, stay warm and stay safe!
