WHY Backup Radar?

Our why is based on many of the same frustrations that likely lead you to our website. We were tasked with managing backups across our client base. We tried everything from managing backups from our RMM toolset to automated emails into our ticketing system to manual spreadsheet checklists. After a several years journey into what I can only deem as insanity trying to cut down the mundane task of checking backups. We thought it would be brilliant to have a central portal that could check our backups in one place and keep the history of reporting no matter what backup products we had in use.

What were our core problems?

  • Technicians would make mistakes reading date and time stamps manually.
  • We had no central backup portal to monitor our backups in one place.
  • We could not give a customer an all inclusive backup report with all of their backup data on it.
  • Our processes for checking backups were manual and costly
  • Boring and mundane tasks of checking backups was bringing our backup admin morale down.
  • We were not billing clients accurately for the backup software in use.
  • Our management had no oversight or accountability of backups or failures for customers.
  • We could not easily split up the backup checking duties to more than one person. 
  • Manually opening and closing of backup tickets consumed a lot of time. 
  • None of our existing tools could provide us trends on a weekly or monthly basis of our backups.
