Next Readiness Checklist to Prevent a 'Cyber Monday' Disaster-2 Next

Having a crisis plan in place is critical to the success of any business, especially when anticipating the impact of popular shopping days such as “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday.” When developing your plan, there are several things to consider that can significantly affect your system uptime. For example, does your billing provider offer an alternative, backup system in the event of an outage? When will they communicate a system roll-over to you?  And how will your employees redirect/reroute customers to the backup system in a timely manner? Plan for the worst, and you’ll end up with the best possible outcome: uninterrupted service and sales.

As you know, there is always a surge in spending (and Web traffic) for retailers during the weeks leading up to the holidays. “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” draw out massive numbers of consumers for pre-holiday sales. And these purchasing spikes can seriously harm a business if its billing infrastructure isn’t able to handle this considerable increase in transaction volume.

As businesses are moving to the cloud for their system infrastructure, and consumers are increasingly purchasing items online, it’s that much more important for companies to make sure they have a billing platform that will support additional workloads without impacting their system uptime. So, how to prepare for these popular peaks?

Aria Systems, a cloud billing/subscription management platform provider, offers the following checklist for businesses to ensure that their cloud-based billing system is adequately prepared for the upcoming holiday season.
