FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ATLANTA, GA – Covid-19 accelerated the demand for employees to work remotely. Hence, companies now rely on technology for day-to-day business operations more than ever before. This includes door, frame and hardware distributors. As a result, the reliance on technology, servers, internet access, can create new stresses and potentially catastrophic technology failures. For example, cyber attacks, ransomware, and network hardware server failures.
Due to the increased occurrence, Software for Hardware recently conducted a webinar on I.T. best practices. The webinar focused on I.T. security and proper back-up procedures. In addition, SFH offered P3 subscribers a free one-hour I.T. consultation session to inspect and evaluate their back-up procedures and ensure customer and job data remains secure and protected. Michael Schecter, I.T. Manager, Software for Hardware, noted, “DFH distributors can no longer ignore the risks of cyber attack or data loss from system or hardware failure. We’ve helped too many clients recover from catastrophic I.T. events this year.” Schecter continued, “We conducted this webinar as a proactive program to help our customers avoid customer I.T. catastrophes. We recorded the session for all our customers to watch.”
“While not specifically related to doors, frames, or hardware software, these I.T. issues can cause dramatic business impact to our distributor customers. Whenever possible, we aim to proactively provide our customers resources and support for their business; even when not related to our software,” noted Lisa Oxman, Co-Owner, Software for Hardware.
