Alcatel-Lucent: Business continuity when crisis

ALE Rainbow: Keep your business up and running in times of crisis

Whether indirectly or directly, the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus has impacted us all. Like all enterprises operating during these worrying times, efforts to preserve the safety and well-being of our employees has become the fundamental factor in all decision-making and planning. To help reduce the level of risk our employees are potentially exposed to, organizations have needed to adapt, reduce, or at times completely ban domestic or international travel and introduce remote working procedures that allow staff to work from safe locations.

In order to achieve this, one requires a fully mobile, effective, ubiquitous, and easy-to-use technology that safeguards the integrity and security of everyone’s data or personal information.

To accommodate these requirements, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is offering free Rainbow Enterprise licences for three-months (from 9th of March to the 30th of June 2020) so that businesses can experience its cloud-based communication platform and enable their staff to productively and securely work remotely. With the three-month trial period commencing on the date of activation, businesses will be able to immediately use Rainbow on the Web, their mobile, desktop and tablet.  With no additional hardware or software installations required, in one click employees can get started immediately.

At the end of the three-month promotional period one will be able to extend one’s subscription and continue to benefit from the tried-and-test communication and collaboration platform.
