  1. Q: How long does it take to get ERM up and running? Is it difficult to learn and use?
    A: In most cases it only takes about 48 hours to set up a new customer (including data migration) and activate the users. ERM requires very little customization and training and has been designed to be intuitive and interactive so that it is simple to learn and easy to use. ManageB2B also provides a large amount of documentation with illustrations and extensive indexing, and telephone support. As a result, a customer’s learning curve has been relatively short, usually no more than a few days.
  2. Q: How secure is our data? Reliability?
    A: Customers’ data is as secure and the back-up system and disaster recovery plan are as stable and reliable as anyone’s in the IT industry, or BETTER.
    1. The reasons: One of ManageB2B’s principal founders comes from the Network Infrastructure and Information Security Industry: His specialty: Business Continuance Planning and Solutions. The company he also co-founded was one of the industry’s best and ranked in the TOP VAR Business 500 in 2002 and also awarded the “2002 Technology Leader Award”
    2. Our main business line is ERM Solutions to SMBs, where business functions are regarded as mission-critical as for larger enterprises. Business continuance be it High Availability, Recovery Procedures, Network Center Risk, Data Center Risk, Data Security are in ManageB2B’s DNA! It has over 30 security levels to protect the enterprise information from hackers and bad employees.
    3. Typically, after the sale, secure customer data is ManageB2B’s priority No.1. We then deploy our back-up and protection plans for the new customer to protect data from the outside and from mechanical failure. We back up customer data regularly, and store them off-site. Testing of Back-up Plan, Evaluation and Maintenance are also done on a regular basis.
    4. ManageB2B has ample redundant power: Fault-tolerant technology is built into the system with two or more redundant computers, each performing tasks in unison. Should one of the computers fail, the other will take over and continue to work; an alarm alerts managers to replace the malfunctioning computer.

    A: Backup policy and schedules are defined in our Service Level Agreements. We ensure that they are frequent enough that any need to restore data will be minimally disruptive to customers operation.
  5. Q: Is the system virus free?
    A: With some very determined virus writers in the world today, no system can boast that it will always be safe from virus attacks. So far, though, virus invasion has never been a problem for ManageB2B’s customers. We have very stringent policies in place and any software from the most susceptible provider, however good it may be, is avoided.
