"At Rebooted, we provide our clients with on site computer installation and support. We constantly have the task of setting up tape backup procedures for our clients. I found that using BackupAssist significantly reduced the time taken to set up the backups, scheduling scripts, and explain the whole process to our client - thus saving time and money.
"All our clients want is a simple backup strategy that's secure, easy to follow and implement, and BackupAssist provides just that. It's an excellent product, and I do like the emailed logs as it allows me to remotely check progress."
"I was looking for a program that would take care of backup needs for small businesses... I searched on the internet and found your site, read your information and downloaded the trial software and was very impressed.
"I found the software easy to use and the setup straight forward and intuitive... Great job so far, very happy and satisfied customer."
1. Easy to set up and schedule - no scripts, no batch-files, no hassles
Usually, it takes just 10 minutes to set up and schedule BackupAssist. That's because BackupAssist has a very user-friendly setup and configuration interface. Simple wizards take the user through the process of adding backup jobs, selecting which files to backup and scheduling the backups. You can schedule rotation schemes at the click of a button - just select from a range of preconfigured schemes, depending on how complex you want your scheme to be.
"It had already cost me more in man-hours trying to get [another backup package] to work correctly than BackupAssist cost. Ten minutes to install and configure - Spot On."
"Within minutes, BackupAssist allowed us to implement a thorough backup strategy that minimized the amount of work involved by our IT staff."
2. Easy to manage and monitor - little effort required
When administrative tasks such as managing and monitoring backups are taking too much time out of your working day, BackupAssist can make your life easier with daily email reminders and notificiations.
The daily email reminders tell you exactly which tape or disk to use. There's no need to keep track of complicated rotation schemes or check that the correct tapes or disks are being used, saving you time and effort. After each backup, BackupAssist sends an email notification telling you whether the backup succeeded or failed. It's very convenient (and reassuring) to arrive at work every morning with an email notification in your mailbox, informing you of any problems with the backup.
"Some of our larger clients are also interested in your product, simply because it lets them know, quickly and simply, whether the backup has worked or not. This may seem like a small thing but for many IT departments / backup operators it's a real problem."
"Within minutes, BackupAssist allowed us to implement a thorough backup strategy that minimized the amount of work involved by our IT staff.
"BackupAssist's greatest strength is the fact that it just works. It may seem like such an obvious thing for software to just work without a lot of hassle, but that is not usually the case. It is always a pleasant surprise when software just works without a bunch of hand-holding by the user, and that is certainly the case with BackupAssist.
"E-mail notifications/reminders. Given the load of responsibilities on an IT department in a software company, this is an incredibly useful feature.
"I love your product - it has made implementing an effective backup strategy extremely simple and hassle-free."
3. Avoid the complexity of enterprise-level brands
BackupAssist avoids enterprise-level features that make backup software more expensive and more complex, and instead concentrates on making it easy for the user to set up, schedule and manage backups. Some expensive brands are overkill for smaller organizations, making it more difficult for the average user to understand the backup process and making life harder for system administrators.
"I'll be telling our other Admins to forget the incredibly expensive, supposed "industry standards" with which they're continually having problems... So far, this aspect of my computer administration life has become a non-issue after having struggled for a few months just to get some reliability.
"Thanks for a great product!"
"Ease of use, simple email interface and good reliable reporting. Many other backup products over-complicate the setup process and the reporting process. [A competitor] for example is a nightmare for the average user to understand whether the backup as successful or not."
You've made my backup procedure easy and very straight forward... I think the reason BackupAssist is so good is because it concentrates on giving the system administrator the tools they need to do their job. It provides a service to me the fallible forgetful human rather than me the technical IT manager.
4. Simplify set up and management of Windows Backup
If you've ever felt that you were spending too much time setting up and managing Windows Backup (NTBackup), BackupAssist may be the solution for you. Designed specially as a solution for Windows Backup issues - such as clumsy scheduling, unfriendly interfaces, unreliable backups, lack of notifications and complex media management - BackupAssist is the simplest solution for system administrators struggling with Windows Backup.
"Attempted to use NTBackup and had many problems. Tried the 30-day trial of BackupAssist and knew immediately I would purchase.
"The beauty of this software lies in it's simplicity. I was installed and running backups within minutes... from what I have seen of the software, it has made my (and my IT guys?) lives less complicated with regard to our backup needs."
"A must for every sysadmin struggling with NTBackup."
"Having struggled with NTBackup for months, BackupAssist came to the rescue and turned a problem into a solution.... It makes the NTBackup program work (that's a bit obvious) and I like the usage of email to inform about backup status and reminders to load the tape.
"Very user friendly and extremely easy to use."
5. Competitively priced
You may be surprised to learn that many backup software packages cost around $1000. These prices are so high because those packages are designed for large corporations, and have complex, enterprise-level features that you don't need. At the same time, they can be more difficult to setup, manage and monitor - wasting your time and money!
We've priced our product at - less than 1/4th the cost of some competitors. For that price, you receive the benefits of comprehensive data protection amd simple setup and management.
"Excellent product. Big on features, small on price! No competition."
"I purchased BackupAssist because I was tired of pulling my hair out with [a competitor's] over priced and overly complex software."
