Paladin Tech Buzz


Your Paladin Point of Sale system holds a lot of important information.

Inventory, accounts receivable, tax records, sales data, customer info… Everything is in there and easy to access when you need it.

But, what if, suddenly, it wasn’t there?

Fire, theft, natural disasters, computer viruses, and catastrophic hardware failure are just a few of the events that can permanently separate you from one of your most valuable assets — your data.

What could you do?

In this increasingly digital world, could you recreate your data? How many man-hours would it take to put it back together? A report by David M. Smith, PhD in the Graziadio Business Review states, “a company that experiences a computer outage lasting for more than 10 days will never fully recover financially and 50 percent of companies suffering such a predicament will be out of business within 5 years”. How prepared are you?

Paladin has a secure off-site backup service.

DataWise™, part of Paladin’s BizManage™ services, protects your business if you lose access to the data you use to run Paladin Point of Sale. After your day is over, DataWise™ automatically backs up your data to our professionally managed servers, seven days a week. Nothing to manage or forget.

A database is a different animal.

Backing up a database is more complicated than simply copying a file from one computer hard drive to another. A database isn’t a single file but an information system composed of many parts. An excellent example of a database is your local library. This database contains two major parts, the card catalog (the database) and the books themselves (the data). Like the database in Paladin, these two pieces work together to help you store and locate information quickly. A database that isn’t connected to its data is like that card catalog without the books… Not a lot of useful information there. On the other hand, having a million books at your disposal is great, but without the card catalog, it might take weeks to find a specific book.

DataWise™ puts it all back together.

In the rare event that data loss occurs, Paladin will restore your database using the best possible method for your individual situation. Our goal is to have you up and running again as quickly as possible.

Easiest set-up, ever!

Once you purchase DataWise™ on the Paladin web store, you’re finished. Our technicians will jump in and take care of everything. All you have to do is rest easy knowing all your data is safe and secure.
