Backup Your Time Clock Data

Theft, flood, fire, hard disk failure, and viruses. The words that strike fear into the heart of all business owners. It seems like every week we're listening to a customer describing one of these very real disasters and begging us to bring their time clock data back. Unfortunately, we can't restore what no longer exists. Since Virtual TimeClock stores your database locally, it's completely in your hands to be prepared for disasters.

I can't stress enough the importance of backing up your time clock software data. The Virtual TimeClock backup utility allows you to easily and quickly perform a one time manual backup, or schedule daily or repeating backups. The backup utility will compress your database, and also add a date and time stamp. Quickly restoring your employee time clock database from a backup file could mean the difference between minor inconvenience and major payroll hassles.
