Secure Data for International Shipping
The famous pitch for car insurance salespeople is “we never plan for an accident, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be prepared for it” The same is true when planning for data loss for your business. Just like insurance premiums for our cars, data backup automation can be automated and simplified so you can rest assured that no matter what happens, your customer and business data is secured and when shipping internationally, your customer data is of the highest priority.

Is Cloud storage right for your international shipping platform?
In 2019, most companies are utilizing the cloud in some form or fashion. When utilizing the cloud, you are freeing up your IT department by solving problems before they can occur. For example, the lack of software installations and automatic upgrades can focus your team on streamlining the customer experience instead of removing hardware barriers. Importantly when considering integrated solutions, it is important to consider platforms that are compatible with Windows, Mac OSX and Linux.
