Standby Office Space Solution From Plan B

Why you may need a Standby Office Solution

If you use data to run your business (and what business doesn’t these days) you must be able to access that data from an off-site location and alternative infrastructure, if and when you need to.

A standby office is a key component of Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and helps ensure that essential business functions continue to operate during and after a disaster or other disruption.

Floods, Fires or Other Natural Disasters:
Standby in 3, 2, 1

During the 2019 SkyCity fire, standby offices were a lifesaver for a lot of companies. Businesses affected by the blaze were able to use Plan B’s expertise to get back up and running quickly. 

As well as space and time to get your business back on its feet, you also get access to our  engineers who are experts in networking, data protection and backup, and customer care. 

Our on-call engineers are available 24/7 so we can assemble a team, whenever and wherever you need us.

Standby Office Space For Covid 19

An Unprecendented Crisis:
Don’t mention the C-word

The recent coronavirus is a stark reminder to businesses of just how vulnerable they are to a major health crisis. 

Shifting some of your key operational functions to a standby office reduces the risk of your entire business operation being affected, should the worst happen

Standby Office Space For Offsite Meeting Section

Off-site Meetings & Planned Usage
Secret & Secure!

Maybe you want to host a meeting to discuss a top-secret merger or acquisition … 

Maybe you need a war room to manage a crisis in your business … 

Maybe you need extra call-centre staff to manage seasonal demand, a sales campaign or a one-off event … 

Whatever your situation, our standby offices are ideal for planned usage scenarios.

All of our sites have CCTV cameras and monitored alarm systems so are very secure.

Dedicated Or Shared Office Space?
Which Option Is Right For You?

Your subscription to our Standby Office service gives you access to an agreed number of seats at your nominated facility (or facilities). 

Our shared (or multi-subscriber) Standby Offices are similar to a coworking space. That doesn't work for some companies who value their privacy. Depending on your risk policy and specific requirements you can choose a dedicated suite.

With a dedicated suite you customise it to suit your needs. You tell us what you want. If you need us to knock down a wall, we’ll do it

Why choose Plan B’s Standby Offices?

Our standby offices are in a constant state of readiness and each workspace seat has a desk, chair, telephone, headset and a thin client terminal with LCD monitor connected to a windows 10 virtual desktop with Internet access.

Every phone comes with a DDI and we can replicate your organisation’s own telephone system. We test our equipment every month to make sure everything is ready to go at the flick of a switch. 

Our standby office solution is complemented by other Plan B services including server recovery and verification. Plan B has a dedicated team of recovery engineers who are experts in their field. 

If you need engineers who are experts in networking, data protection and backup, and customer care, we're available 24/7 so we can assemble a team, whenever and wherever you need us, to solve your ICT issues.

You don’t want someone who will hand over the key to your standby office and leave you to sort it out on your own.

During a crisis, you want to partner with a company who can seamlessly transition your team to a new workplace.

That’s what we do.
