In these days of intense competition, companies cannot afford to lose their communication with their customers and employees. Even in face of natural disasters, these companies need to keep working, and for that, they need specialized solutions.

CallFire , a company that provides cloud based voice broadcast solutions, has stated that Meriden, Conn.-based Bob’s Stores have used its voice broadcast solution to prepare against stormy weather.

According to the company, the solution provided by CallFire is dependable and inexpensive.
