Everyone knows that regular data backups are an essential part of a disaster recovery plan. Not having regular data backups can be terminal for your business if you have a computer disaster. So, whats the answer?
A full disaster recovery plan would not just include data recovery. Other things to consider would be office floods, power outages and fire, which may stop the workplace being used by staff.
One solution for the accounts function would be using hosted software. This provides secure servers backed up daily. The servers are mirrored and hence very secure and reliable. Should the worst happen and your office computers be stolen or damaged then you just need access to the internet to have your accounts back working again. Why not also use our hosted Microsoft Office solution and ensure the majority of your business software and data is protected.
Disaster Recovery and Risk Management are becoming an increasingly important consideration for all companies, large or small. In fact – it is generally the smaller family owned type of business that is more at risk than the larger companies. Lets face it, we all know that paying a full time IT person to look after your computer systems and ensure you’ve got backups of data is an expensive luxury that many would like to avoid if possible. Now you can. Because our accounting systems run on web servers, your data is automatically backed up every night. All you need to do is ensure you’re not using the accounting system during the night, and with this service you should be able to sleep soundly. Your data is held on secure servers and should anything untoward happen with your office computers, then all you need to do to get up and running again is find a computer with internet access and log back into the system.
