The History of Williams Data Management
Data is the lifeblood of any business, since it dictates how a business will keep operating. Without data, business owners won’t know if they’re making profits or if they’re going bankrupt. Many firms ended up closing or taking heavy losses because their data fell into the wrong hands. Therefore, businesses need to protect their data from getting compromised, but how should they keep their data safe in an era where cabinets and padlocks won’t do?
The answer: by going digital. Digital data management offers better accessibility and organizational capabilities than paper-based data management, without the security issues. By using high capacity hard drives to store data, businesses can store all the information they have without dealing with the clutter associated with big file cabinets. Aside from that, digital data management also offers security features like password systems to prevent unauthorized people from accessing their data. Some companies buy their own hardware to keep their files, but many are switching to outsourced data management services provided by third-party data management companies like Williams Data Management.
A family company since 1922, the company was founded by John J. Williams. It started out as a storage company and was called Williams Transfer and Storage Company. Although a relatively small company, it eventually gained a reputation among local businesses for its personalized services. The company expanded during the 1930s and was hired by the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company to handle transportation and storage.
Williams Data Management flourished even during the Great Depression and World War II, transporting and storing general merchandise for businesses throughout Southern California. After the war, the company was changed to Williams Transportation Company and added services such as truck leasing and outsourced transportation services.
During the 60s and 70s, Williams Data Management continued to flourish and acquired several companies such as Wynn's Tire and Rubber Company, Quality Transportation, and Operative Delivery Services. At one point, the company operated the largest private fleets in California. The company didn’t dabble in record management until the late 70s and early 80s, when it was renamed as Williams Records Management.
The company grew even more as a document storage center business a complete 180 degree turn from its former incarnation in freight distribution. Finally, Williams Records Management became Williams Data Management in 2010. In order to show everyone that the company is keeping up with the times, the company began offering digital storage, data recovery management, and cloud computing services. Williams Data Management has clearly gone a long way; from being a small storage company, it expanded as one of the best known data management companies in Los Angeles.
