Disaster Recovery

First Technology Capital (FTC) was organized in 1990 primarily as a brokerage company for high technology assets. It has since grown into the world's largest lessor and re-marketer of MICR and remittance equipment to the financial services industry. Doing business with 18 of the top 25 banks in the US it was a logical step for FTC to broaden its services to include disaster recovery. This was done in 1997. First Technology Capital (FTC) offers an array of disaster recovery solutions for its customers. The recovery solutions in place today provide maximum protection in the event of a customer's loss of all or part of its check/paper transaction processing operations. FTC provides a comprehensive solution – workspace, technology/connectivity and logistics.

These solutions include:

  • Shared and dedicated seats
  • PC's, servers, printers, faxes, conference rooms, break areas, etc.
  • Sophisticated telephony to handle a mix of call center functions
  • Data replication capability
  • Mobile trailers and modules for long-term outages
  • Professional services
  • LAN/WAN recovery area with bank equipment and personnel/processes to support the rapid restoration of desktop applications and data

Operations Center Relocation

FTC has more experience in relocating IBM check equipment than any other group in the world. From the deinstallation, packing to IBM standards, loading and unloading equipment on the trucks, and placement and installation on the computer room floor, the technical details and potential pitfalls are too numerous to risk to anyone with less experience. Because we do not have to subcontract our trucks or drivers, our transportation services are available in an expedite mode, such as may be necessary in a disaster recovery situation.

Whatever your need or situation may be, FTC stands ready for your tailor made solution.
