Why you should be using a cloud-based booking system
Business owners across the globe are moving away from pen and paper bookings and towards the modern technology offered by a cloud-based booking system.
Cloud-based booking systems have many advantages over manual booking systems. Through automation and remote access, they help businesses achieve simple booking and facility management, whilst also offering advanced protection against data hacks.
Here are 3 reasons why you should consider switching your outdated booking process to a cloud-based booking system.
With a cloud based software, you have the security of knowing your data is safe. With the rise in data attacks, hackers are targeting outdated booking systems and yours could be next. A report, by the Security Magazine, says that “There is a hacker attack every 39 seconds”. Our booking system is designed to protect against such attacks, with regular back-ups carried out automatically to the main server.
Our private cloud runs on a bank of dedicated servers hosted in the UK and our operations are ISO 27001 Compliant – ISO 27001. Plus, to safeguard clients, we build every client website with HTTPS or “HTTP Secure”, communication. This is a communications protocol for secure communication over a computer network, which protects against man-in-the-middle attacks.
Cloud software allows you to access your data from anywhere in the world using any device.
With Sports Bookers’ cloud-based booking system, you can securely log in to your dashboard from any location and view your calendar in real-time. All you need is a reliable internet connection and web browser.
This also makes the initial set up fast and stress free as there is no need for hardware instillation.
Automatic security updates
With the Sports Booker hosted on cloud servers, you can be sure that your data is safe. We regularly update our servers to ensure they have the latest security patches and malware protection. Updates are carried out automatically every month with minimum disruption and will ensure you are running the latest version with new features.
