Is your time tracking data accessible, no matter what?

time tracking data accessible

Suppose you and your employees had to keep your core business running in the wake of a natural disaster. Your internal network drives may be backed up locally, or even to an offsite location, and probably that would cover your needs if your data loss were the result of hardware failure or human error. You’d restore your systems and return to business. But what if your office were destroyed or rendered unreachable? Could you perform your project cost tracking, client billing, and attendance tracking?

While many companies have disaster recovery plans that enable a return to operations, not all of these provide for lack of physical access to local systems. If your company’s internal network went down —and with it, access to project or attendance data—most employees could perform only limited functions from their homes or their temporary out-of-area locations.

But with your time tracking software and data “in the cloud,” access to the Internet is all they’d need to see project data, prepare data for invoicing, and log the hours they worked. That’s one of many reasons why we’ve become proponents of web-based applications. And why we’ve invested in infrastructure that ensures your employees can stay productive if a disaster keeps them away from their workplaces.

At Replicon, our cloud-based software and your data are hosted and stored in offsite data centers that include safeguards to keep your information secure and available. In addition to certified process controls, state-of-the-art application security, and network protection there are:

  • Redundant power supplies using a combination of uninterrupted power supplies (UPS), generators, and battery backup
  • Automated system backups performed daily and weekly
  • Regularly-scheduled disaster recovery testing
