Are you backing up your fleet data?

Old fashioned filing cabinets and stacks of documents have become almost an endangered species in modern Australian offices, as more and more businesses decide to shift their information resources online.

Spreadsheets and documentation which were previously stored physically are now more likely to be found in a digital format, stored on company servers or even via the cloud.

This is also true of the fleet management industry, as many modern fleet managers are now taking steps to store important fleet data online, rather than in physical form.

There are many advantages to this. For example, storing fleet information online improves accessibility, caters to greater collaboration, and ensures that any relevant data can be updated with less hassle.

However one of the downsides - particularly when using less advanced technology - is the risk of data loss.

Information that is stored digitally can potentially be vulnerable to deletion, due to technical malfunctions or user error, and this can be hugely detrimental to day to day operations.

Luckily, this is not a problem with a top of the line fleet management program, which has the ability to instigate automatic back-ups.

This ensures that all of the data surrounding your vehicle fleet is automatically copied and transferred on a regular basis - at least once every 24 hours.

At the end of the day, it's about ensuring business continuity and preparing for the worst possible scenario, even while you hope for the best.

With an automatic backup service, you can have confidence that any information which is essential to the efficient running of your fleet will be safe even if physical damage occurs to your servers

Furthermore, you do not run the risk of accidentally deleting or losing any important historical data which may prove invaluable further down the line.

And you can't put a price on peace of mind like that.
