Why do I need Remote Online Backup?

We know that for most businesses, big or small, the use of software such as Sage Accounts/Payroll, CRM software like ACT, and the creation of Word, Excel and publisher files means that almost every aspect of running a business is being handled and stored digitally on computers. Names, addresses, trading history, credit terms previous quotes and orders to name a few are all being held in digital format.

For businesses, this information is vital for effective customer care and for the day-to-day running of the businesses.

If a business were to lose this data, it would mean a critical loss of customer information, contact details and appointment books. The resulting loss of revenue could be severe as it struggles to re-take customer records, setup new appointment books and make bookings.

Whilst the actual equipment needed to carry out procedures will still be available, it will be difficult for any business to make new appointments and find the relevant records for incoming customers.

So Why Online Backup?

Over the last year or more we have found that many businesses still choose to backup their data onto a CD , DVD, tape USB drive or USB key. Don't get me wrong - to have any backup as opposed to nothing is a good thing.

However, they fail to realise that unless these are stored safely and secure offsite (we would always recommend a fire proof safe), they face the same risk as the computer files being destroyed or damaged by fire, floods or other disasters.

If you outsource your backup process to us here at DISConsulting IT Ltd it means that we will setup a fully automated backup which will be stored in encrypted format, meeting all current data storage regulations, at our UK based data centres for security that’s monitored and is available to you 24/7, 365 days a year.

Because we monitor it for you 24/7, 365 days a year, we will know if a problem occurs and can deal with that problem quickly. This allows you to concentrate on your business.

In addition to this, our software is designed so that you have up to 60 days of previous backups available so there's no need to panic if for example you became infected with a virus over a week ago or even more. You could simply choose the desired date before any problems occurred and select the files to be restored.

Finally, we provide our customers with a simple 30 day rolling contract, so you will have complete peace of mind that you will not be stuck in a lengthy contract of 12 or 24 months.
