Imagine if your business suffered a serious blow leading to catastrophic failure of your IT systems. A fire, a flood or even a break in, how long would it take to rebuild your critical business management systems from scratch? Any downtime can be disastrous, especially in today's climate.
None of us like to think about it, but it makes sound business sense to be prepared for the worst. Good planning could help you get your systems up and running again quickly and minimise the damage to your business. What's more, with the influence of US regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, auditors are increasingly looking for sound Business Continuity Planning before they'll sign off your accounts.
Make sure that your Business Continuity Plan includes your Sage software. A Sage 200 Disaster Recovery licence can give you the back-up and security that you need.
What is Disaster Recovery and why do I need it?
Disaster Recovery is the process, policies and procedures related to preparing for recovery or continuation of technology infrastructure critical to an organisation after a natural or human induced disaster.
And, it's not just for large organisations - these incidents are very common with growing numbers of viruses, security breaches, hardware failures and data corruption. All organisations should be prepared for all potential eventualities.
We want to help you be prepared
Back-up your system - We recommend that you take regular back-ups of your Sage data, and check them regularly. Your standard Software Licence Agreement also lets you copy your software CD so we can reinstall Sage 200 in the event of a catastrophe.
Disaster recovery licence - For complete peace-of-mind, we can now offer you a Disaster Recovery license for Sage 200. This special licensing option allows you to legitimately run a full, active 'mirror' of your main Sage 200 system. So even if the worst should happen, your business won't suffer any damaging downtime. This back-up licence is available from as little as £1500 , regardless of the number of users that you have. We can work with you to develop and configure your back-up installation, using the appropriate technology.
