Is Your Business Disaster Ready?

September is National Preparedness Month. I’m sure you’ll agree, disaster readiness is crucial to help you get back to business faster should a disaster strike!

Here are a few simple reminders for you to consider…

Back Up Your Data Remotely!  We recommend backing up all data to an offsite location, and we offer this as a service to our clients.

Take a Swing at IT Frustration

When your computer or smartphone doesn’t respond as expected, it’s frustrating. A recent study of workplace and academic computer users showed high levels of frustration and time loss with just daily computer activities. So, when an interaction with a computer or an application turns sour, it’s easy to understand the desire to reach for that baseball bat!

However, there are better ways to approach your relationship with computers.

Fighting Disasters for our Clients

In the 80's, Bonnie Tyler’s hit song said, “I need a hero. I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night.” While we may not be super heroes at IT Radix, over the years we’ve had the honor of helping out our clients when disaster strikes.

Case in point: September 17, 2012. It started out as a regular Monday morning until we received the call that a potential client had a server down.
