The operation of Guildcare NG requires the internet.
It is good business practice to assess the likelihood and impact of your business if the internet was to fail, causing your NG and their other internet-based services to become unavailable. Depending on this assessment, a mitigation plan should be in place if this event was to occur. For example, the plan could be to have a standby alternate internet provider or manual procedures.
