“We took a long time to evaluate Dropsuite’s products to make sure they worked the way we needed them to work for our customers,” said Michele Neylon, CEO of Blacknight. “Dropsuite was a good fit so our technical team did the integration and we added extra functionality which as really important to us.”
Blacknight went on a search to find a viable, affordable website and database backup provider. The retail price [for website backup] was an important factor because most of Blacknight’s customers didn’t want to pay a lot of money for backup because it was difficult for them to foresee how important their data is until they had an issue with it. Blacknight found a solution in Dropsuite. Dropsuite’s products made it easy for Blacknight’s customers to backup their data in just one click, at a low price, (white labelled as Sitebackup).
Thousands of Blacknight customers across Europe were asking for a way to backup their data in a simple, cost-effective manner. Says Neylon, “Many of our customers did not have their own IT staff to to setup websites or troubleshoot technical requests. Dropsuite was good fit for our customers.”
