Planning for IT disaster

Backups of your computer data are the key to getting you business back up and running in a hurry should disaster occur. I see small businesses in Springfield MO and the area that either don’t back up at all or they do not do it adequately. Even if you are using nothing more than Quickbooks to run your business you need to have at least a daily back up. Quickbooks has an online backup solution which is affordable and I recommend you use it. Flash drives also work very well for storing back ups and taking them off site and are easy to use. If you need help getting a back up solution for your business give me a call.
