Data backup service provides peace of mind on monthly subscription basis

If ‘IT’ isn’t your thing then of course you rely on the recommendation of your IT supplier – but sometimes that doesn’t work in your favour.

BBR Optometry found themselves in a similar situation last year.  18 months previously they had revamped their whole set up and were interested in using off site data backup to protect their data.  However, their IT company didn’t think this was the best way to go.

As a result, they spent a considerable sum of money installing a tape backup system.  But during the summer, they suffered failure problems which meant they weren’t taking regular data backups as planned.

We had already spoken to Nick Rumney, the MD, to introduce Replicate Retina so he knew there was someone new in the market who could help.  He was also aware that our data backup protects Topcon retina images as well as other practice data.

BBR Optometry contacted us in August 2012 and we have been working together since.  Nick Black, director, says:

“Replicate Retina now allows us peace of mind to cover any catastrophic event by automatically backing up data off site every night.  We still maintain a belt and braces policy as we concurrently do tape backup, but we are not reliant on individuals to ensure that the manual procedure is completed and the tape taken off the premises.  Replicate Retina is a monthly subscription service, so there’s no capital expenditure involved, and the team are friendly, approachable and proactive.”
