What is Businessbeans and why do I need it?

Businessbeans is an all-in-one online business platform that makes life easier and business more profitable. We're replacing multiple tools that are essential for internet businesses with one - that's why life is easier. No more moving data between a handful of separate solutions. No more remembering different log ins for different products. No more wrestling with code and techie stuff.

How is Businessbeans an 'all-in-one online business platform'?

When you log in, you are able to immediately access your contact database, your orders, web form submissions, products and catalogues, web pages and email marketing campaigns from one central location. Furthermore, all of those functions are built to work together from the ground up!

How reliable is Businessbeans?

The technology and infrastructure behind Businessbeans is partnered by Adobe. Your online presence will be powered and supported within their secure data center in Sydney. This means that our servers have:

  • Multiple cooling and power distribution paths for stable systems
  • Multiple active power distribution paths to prevent down time from blackouts
  • Redundant components for fault tolerance
  • High connectivity and power into our machines
The data centre is connected to the net via Tier 1 networks, or have peering arrangements with Tier 1 networks. This means that our servers are essentially hooked in to the "backbone" of the internet, which generally results in higher network speeds and lower latency from your customer's browser to our servers. And on top of all that we allow you 1TB (1000GB) of bandwidth per month!

What about data management? Do you provide back ups?

All servers have regular full and differential backups and are load balanced, meaning if a server goes down all traffic is diverted to a mirrored server. Backups of your business website also includes your customer database, orders and email marketing campaigns
