Why FastBound clients love the cloud

Most FFL holders dread the tedious nature of A&D record keeping.

Recent technology has simplified many processes in our life, from ordering food, to watching TV, to ordering a ride. So why as an industry would we stay in the dark ages with pens and papers and repetitive acquisitions and dispositions? Using updated technology across many platform, Mac, PC, etc FFL holders can reduce the time needed for record keeping. One step further by using cloud based software these tasks can be performed on multiple platforms by multiple users.

How can the cloud make my life simple?

Cloud based software, such as FastBound, are compatible across both PC & Macintosh platforms. If your GM uses a PC, but your operations manager uses a Mac both have equal compatibility.

Based in the cloud, FFL holders keep the peace of mind knowing their data is securely backed up at all times. No more blue window of death panic, or water spilled nightmare. Regardless of individual computer failures, your books are safe and can be easily accessed at any time from any functioning system.

Compliance, compliance compliance! The #1 violations year after year is the failure to timely record A&D’s. Using an electronic based bound book makes this process easy so you stay on top of the tasks. Cloud based FFL record books keep your entries organized, accurate, and entirely legible. In addition, by using a cloud based software you can rest assured the latest rulings and updates have been integrated in your record keeping process.
