Backups: The Most Important Task You May Not Be Doing

Your data is the most important asset to your business. Most PawnMaster customers like the fact that their data is only saved on their own systems and not co-mingled with other shops' data. This is especially important for people using digital gun logs. While having your data stored locally is beneficial, you want to make sure you always have a valid backup stored off site in case of a disaster.

February Recap

As Data Age moves closer to the 3,000 client mark, our customers are reporting February was a month of growth and opportunity. It is obvious this progressive trend is continuing as we are experiencing both new store openings and expansion units being added by our existing clients. We also applaud the efforts and work delivered to the market by the other vendors in the space, as they continue to service our industry and open up new stores as well. With 35 new stores coming on line in February, Data Age continues to take mantel of the pre-eminent leader in the space. Our enhanced focus on education, support and & product development, all based on the feedback from the thousands of clients, is paying big dividends.
