Document safety, are you properly covered?

Problem: Your company is worried about document safety should disaster strike.

Documents are a vital part of your business, be they internal documents such as price lists or proposal templates, legal documents such as client or contractor contracts or financial documents such as tax forms. But what if something happened to all these documents? Have you thought about how your company handles document safety?

For many companies document safety in a disaster is paid little or no attention until a disaster actually happens. By then of course it is just too late and the damage is done. While there are many types of disaster, flooding, fire, theft and even sabotage they all have one thing in common, they can disrupt and damage your business.

The fact that disasters do not occur often may lead many business owners to disregard document safety and regular document backups. Even minor disasters can have serious consequences. Smart business owners know that the cost of document safety is far less than the cost of a disaster.
