What's Your Disaster Recovery Plan?


No matter what business you are in, you need to have a disaster recovery plan. Planning for the worst means that you are fully prepared for anything that might happen, and what could have been an incident that destroyed the entire business can, with the right recovery plan in place, be nothing more than a minor inconvenience.

The problem is, most businesses - large and small - don't have a disaster recovery place at all, and if they do, many of them are inadequate to deal with the immense disruption and loss of revenue that a big problem could cause. Take a hacker breaking into the computer systems, for example. What irreplaceable information would be lost if they decided to delete it all? Or what about something more immediate such as a fire or flood? Customer information, important documents such as insurance, all the financial details belonging to your company... not to mention smaller things such as staff rotas and more. All added together, losing everything could mean that you need to shut down your business for a few days... or completely.

It could take months to put everything right again, if that is even possible. Without a good backup, important files could be lost forever. It could also mean that essential services are disrupted, and important supplier details are found to be missing.

Imagine that happening to your business. Would it survive? Could it survive?

It could with a professional contract management system in place. Contract management software such as intelligentcontract ensures that every single important document, including contracts, is stored in the cloud. If there were a fire or flood and the original copies were destroyed, you could still find everything you need in the digital contracts database.

intelligentcontract has the added benefit of a new geolocation feature. All of your suppliers and internal sites can be mapped on Google Maps - if anything were to go wrong, you would immediately know which suppliers might be affected, and how. It's a handy extra that many a contract management system does not include.

And of course, if you can’t get to your place of work, you can still get to the work itself, as long as it is on the intelligentcontract contracts database. All you need is an internet connection. Wherever you are in the world, you have instant access to your company's essential information and documents, making contacting your insurance provider (for example) much easier than it might otherwise have been.

A disaster recovery plan is essential for every business. With intelligentcontract's contract management system, it doesn't need to be a complicated process.

intelligentcontract is a highly customizable solution that provides a hub to store all your important contract paperwork plus you get loads of useful tools that make your contract management process a breeze. We don't have a limit to either the size of documents of the total amount of storage - so you don't have to worry about extra bills if your central store of documents gets big.
