Businesses should be using technology to mitigate the impacts of flight disruption across Europe, according to one expert.

Alistair McKinnon, Senior Product Manager at broadband provider Virgin Media's business division, said companies and other organisations can continue to operate effectively using the internet and mobile devices.

Improved broadband and other IT services mean that employees are no longer tied to the office, he suggested, meaning that investing in technology represents a sensible business continuity precaution.

Mr McKinnon commented: "Technologies are really good to help out when the problems occur, but also they are improving productivity on a day-to-day basis.

"When problems do occur with things like transport they can just carry on. If there was going to be a face-to-face meeting, they can still do it as a face-to-face meeting over a video call."

Last year, Clodagh Murphy, Director of Eclipse Internet, said business continuity planning can range from altering partners to relocating your business operation and employee workplace.

"But most often, the key to keeping your business running smoothly is to have the right technology solutions in place," she commented.
