Short- & Long-Term Effects of Network Downtime in Retail

In today’s day and age, we rely on computers in just about every aspect of our lives without giving it second thought. But what happens when there’s a disruption in the network and what does that mean for retailers? It can mean massive losses in sales. And with 81% of retailers experiencing downtime at least once a year, with most reporting 4-5 outages per year, there’s no wonder why there’s a push to set up an infrastructure that helps combat the issues that come with a disruption of a network.

And it’s not just monetary losses that can affect your business during this downtime. Around a third of companies say that an outage resulted in damage to their brand’s reputation. Luckily, there are ways to get on the offensive and combat the inevitable outage. Building resilient infrastructure designed to scale with demand is a must. Have backup systems and performing routine tests and maintenance are also ways to stay on the offensive on this inevitable occurrence.
