DPS’ Solution: What the Client Says

“We would never install a POS system without DupliDisk. We insist on it for every job we take. Our customers want zero down time and the DupliDisk ensures that we can give them what they want,”explains IFS’ Mike Quinn.

According to Quinn,IFS chose the DupliDisk because of its reasonable cost and high reliability. “It is like an insurance policy that you buy only once. Installation is simple. All I had to do was plug in the card and the software utility did the rest,” he says.
