Thesaurus Connect - The importance of backing up your payroll in the cloud

Disasters happen. It’s all part of being in business: Fire, flood, theft, you name it. If you own premises or an office, it might happen to you.

While acts of god can’t always be helped, you can be prepared too. Of course, you’ll have insurance -- but what about your priceless payroll data? For a payroll bureau or business, these payroll files underpin the vital task of paying employees.

One option is to manually and continually back-up your data. There’s nothing wrong with this, but it still leaves you prone to human error. All it takes is a busy day, and someone might forget the process that keeps your payroll data safe.

A simpler option is automatic cloud backup. Unlike conventional data backup, cloud storage keeps your data stored at a remote location. You don't need to worry about backing up your payroll data every time you run your payroll. When you link an employer to Thesaurus Connect, for example, it can be  synchronised to the cloud as you run your payroll or make any changes.

Thesaurus Connect provides a secure and user-friendly way to backup and restore your payroll data on your PC to and from the cloud. Your historical backups and data files are accessible and can be easily restored. Never worry about losing your client's payroll data again -- and it’s all GDPR compliant.

Now, ‘GDPR compliant’ is often deployed as a throwaway marketing term these days -- but Thesaurus takes your data security seriously. Thesaurus Connect is hosted on the super-secure, industry-leading Microsoft Azure platform.

Every byte of data transmitted to and from Thesaurus Connect is secured using SSL over HTTPS. In non-technical speak, that means you can rest assured that our cloud backups are not only convenient but safe.

It’s all about speed, too. Thesaurus Connect maintains a chronological history of your backups. You can restore or download any of the backups to your PC or Mac at any time. You can restore a backup onto your existing PC or Mac to roll back your employer data file to a previous version, or you can download a backup onto a new computer to get up and running right where you left off.

So whether it’s an innocent mistake or a flood after a particularly wet December, Thesaurus Connect will get you back on your feet in no time. And during business as usual, you know you can relax as the system hums along in the background, ever ready to help right when you need it.
