In today's digital-first landscape, communication outages are more than minor hiccups; they're significant events with the potential to disrupt businesses. From startups to multinationals, seamless communication is essential to operations, customer service, and competitive positioning. A failure in these systems can adversely impact sales, customer satisfaction, and even the company's reputation.

In an age where rapid information exchange and high customer expectations are the norms, even brief communication interruptions can lead to missed opportunities and eroded trust.
