With immediate effect, MCC will deliver on a creative and tactical strategy to develop brand awareness, promote new product launches and new channel operations, and drive sales.

It is an unavoidable fact that accidents do happen, resulting in the loss of mission critical data. Hardware fails, natural disasters occur, theft and human error which can all contribute to jeopardising the efficient day-to-day running of almost all modern businesses.

DataFort is now able to offer an affordable service to smaller companies, providing a convenient automated system that takes care of business data without the cost and effort of manual intervention. Working together with MCC we will execute a multi-faceted marketing campaign to promote our services across the UK."
