Your POS system has the ability to backup its data on the local PC’s hard drive, a network location or another PC’s hard drive.  While the processes iPOS has installed should be set up in this manner, you should verify how your system is backing up.

Local backups are not always enough when it comes to securing your business critical data should a disaster of any kind affect your store or facility.  In addition to local backups, we strongly recommend automated offsite backups.

  • Backup completion status and assistance in resolution of backup errors
  • Notification of backups missed for more than three (3) days
  • Notification of storage quotas of 90% usage or more

 NOTE: While the backup software we offer is robust and full featured, it must be correctly configured to work properly with the appropriate policies and procedures in place to ensure your data is safe.  iPOS provides no guarantee or representation that the software will always work as intended.  It is ultimately your responsibility to ensure the data critical to your business is being backed up within your organization with appropriate policies and procedures in place including regular disaster recovery testing.  Data will only be backed up from your QB Backup folder unless otherwise instructed.  You are responsible for monitoring the amount of data in the QB Backup folder.  We will notify you when your amount of data is at 90% of quota.  If your amount of data continues at 90% of quota or greater you will automatically be upgraded to the next increment of 5GB of storage resulting in additional fees.


*Price does not include data restores or recovery.  Restores/recovery will be billed at current labor rates.
