With the wild fires raging throughout northern Alberta and tornadoes hitting Ontario, I wonder how many small business owners stop and think how would their business weather the storm? In Alberta, we’ve seen wildfires, tornadoes, flooding, theft, and ransomware, to name a few. Have you considered how you could mitigate a disaster and what would your recovery time look like?
As a business owner you spend years building up your business. Are you willing to lose it in a day? You can help safeguard your business financials by embracing cloud technology. This can be as simple as scanning documents and keeping your financial books recorded in a cloud application such as QuickBooks Online. Should disaster strike, you can purchase a new computer and be up and running in no time and in any place there’s internet. This will minimize the effects of the disaster on payroll, accounts payable, and accounts receivable. You can pick up where you left off anywhere and anytime without losing work and hours of sleep.
When a disaster hits there’s a lot to consider but losing your financials doesn’t need to be one of them. Be prepared and get online so you can focus on other parts of your business. Let us help you keep the lights on.
