Nightly Processes

When the back-up is run every night, specific actions are performed. Listed below are (by module) the processes - the program name, followed by what the program does. A few reports can be set up to run automatically (these are listed in a separate section titled: Reports). Note: If other reports are required to process and print as part of the nightly routine, please contact us. Nearly every report can be generated, however, some custom programming may be required, and this would then be a billable service.

Theoretically, any report can be processed during the back-up, using a strict set of instructions, which must be programmed by us. Please fax in a request indicating the exact report - module, task, sub-task, program name and program code - and a quote will be given. Our fax number is 248 583-4110.
