Safer than houses
We recently spoke with a non-Tramada agent who had lost all of their travel data with the theft of their office computers. Tramada was recommended to them as a safeguard from ever losing data again.
That’s because in 2001 tramada® became the first cloud-based mid/back-office for travel agents in Australia and New Zealand. Along with companies such as Telstra, Netflix and Apple, we recognised early on the many benefits of a cloud-based IT infrastructure. These range from disaster recovery and centralised data protection, governance, and intelligence that increases visibility and usefulness of information – to reduced risk, cost and complexity needed to manage and protect it.
Today, that same agency’s data is stored in tramada’s PCI DSS-compliant environment with third-party cloud storage, multiple back-ups in alternate locations, 24/7 performance monitoring, access control via IP lockdown and 2-Factor Authentication, and regular, ongoing security updates and tests. All of this ensures that their business-critical travel data is preserved and available whenever and wherever they need it, without the need for extra staff, expensive hardware, or software maintenance.
As secure as tramada’s travel technology is, we can’t ensure every client locks their offices in the evening. But they can sleep easy knowing that if they do forget, or if bad things like theft or fire happen, their business won’t walk out the door.
