Everyone has had to adapt to new ways of working in 2020, and as a business we witnessed some of the trials our customer have been through with regards to remote working. We saw two main circumstances:
- Customers with restricted remote access wanting to put their P11D solution 'in the cloud'
- Customers losing data
Moving to the Cloud
Not everyone is aware that we offer the P11D Organiser as a full SaaS/Hosted offering as well as a locally installed solution, but we do! The best news is that it is easy to move from an onsite solution to our SaaS offering - we can migrate all your existing historic data to our secure hosted facility, and spin up a system very quickly.
Operationally the system has the same user interface that you are used to, making the transition simple and painless, and it means you can carry on processing data without fear of VPN connection issues.
Better still, we take care of all the system updates and perform the backups - you have nothing to worry about other than your benefits and expenses. No more calls to IT!
Our SaaS offering runs from industry leading ISO27001 accredited data centres, and all data is stored on enterprise grade encrypted storage devices - we even run a 'redundant' system at another facility in case the worse happens.
Moving to our systems is also painless - your licence fee remains the same, and we just add an additional hosting charge to cover storage, backup and bandwidth. There is a small one-off charge to cover the costs of the technician who will migrate your data and history, and build and test your new installation.

Sadly one of the other trends we saw was that of 'lost data', where a customer had lost access to their P11D information. Sometimes this was due to them trying to move an installation from one location to another to 'take home', sometimes it was because the laptop the took home containing the P11D Organiser had failed.
We also saw many users issued with new laptops to facilitate remote working, but their old machine (which contained the important P11D data) was 'repurposed' and data erased - not great!
We have therefore taken the decision to allow all 'onsite' customers to take advantage of our Secure Offsite Backup facility at no additional charge. This option would allow you to store a backup of your important P11D data in our secure data centre - the same facilities we use to run our SaaS version of the P11D Organiser, so security is guaranteed.
