During this time of year, the threat of fire, flood, severe storms, water damage from office sprinklers, and even theft is very real.
One of the most valuable assets for any company is its data. Hardware and software can easily be replaced, but a company’s data cannot!
As a reminder to all of our clients and friends, here are some simple things you should do to make sure your company is ready for any natural disaster.
- Back Up Your Data Remotely!
Everyone knows that data should be backed up on a daily basis, but many people still use in-house backup systems that will get damaged in a natural disaster or fire, and can easily be stolen. We recommend backing up all data to an off-site location, and we offer this as a service to our clients.
- Use a Quality Surge Protector With Uninterruptible Power Supply Battery.
A high-quality surge protector combined with an uninterruptible power supply battery backup will go a long way in protecting sensitive electronic equipment from surges and other electronic irregularities that can destroy your computer’s circuitry.
- Make Sure Your Servers Are Off The Floor Or In The Cloud.
If your office gets flooded, having your equipment off the floor will prevent it from being completely destroyed. Server racks can be
purchased and installed very inexpensively. Or consider moving your critical server equipment to the cloud and be protected no matter the weather!
- Have A Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan.
Every business should have some type of plan in place for continued operation after a disaster. Would people know where to go? Who
to call? How to log in and access data remotely? Hopefully you’ll never need it, but having a simple plan will make you sleep a lot easier at night knowing you have a way to continue to operate when disaster strikes.

The best thing about working with U.S. Business Systems, is the sense of security and prompt knowledgeable responses we receive. We have experienced a lot of growth in the past 15 years and U.S Business Systems has grown right along with us, always finding new and improved ways of helping. We have been approached by a few competitors over the years, but I have told them the same thing every time: NO interest in changing vendors.
All employees at U.S. Business Systems have always gone above & beyond to fix any I.T. or equipment problems. I can call the service desk with my request and am normally contacted back within the hour (sometimes in minutes). U.S. Business Systems has a great group of employees. Each and every one that I have dealt with has always been friendly, professional, and eager to please. They know how to get the job done! I am so thankful for everything the U.S. Business Systems team does for us every day!
The biggest benefit working with U.S. Business Systems is how well they take care of us. I have struggled with different IT providers for the last 3 years and could not seem to find anyone that could just handle our issues without getting me involved every time. Then I found U.S. Business Systems and have had great service ever since! My offices can call in when they need something addressed and it is handled then and there. To me, that is the best thing in the world!
U.S. Business systems is better than the other firms we have tried because the communication is outstanding! I am not a techie person, so I really
appreciate that they explain things in a way that I know exactly what is going on. If you are looking for a new IT provider know that I have been through 3 firms in 4 years, and I am happy to say that U.S. Business Systems is the best!
