Our Cloud Strategy Saves FEC’s Data from Fire

Amber Lambert cleans up smoke-damaged roller skates at Skate Tiffany’s.

In September, fire ravaged the King Family Fun Center, popularly known as Skate Tiffany’s, in Puyallup, Washington. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but the iconic community skating rink and other indoor attractions were devastated.

Owners Dennis and Melinda King put out a call to the community for help with the clean-up. Intercard sales rep Amber Lambert lives nearby, and she and her family volunteered to spend a Saturday morning cleaning up smoke-damaged roller skates at the popular roller rink and FEC. “Intercard’s customers are part of a global family, and family helps out in times of need,” says Lambert.

Thanks to Intercard’s use of data storage in a secure cloud environment, the Kings did not lose any of their business data despite the destruction of their computer servers. “Intercard had all their point-of-sale data backed up,” says Lambert. “This has made it possible to retrieve data and get access to the financial reporting they need for their insurance claim.”

The Kings told MYNorthwest.com News that they plan to come back strong and get the skating rink rebuilt as soon as possible. “We know how much it means to the community, and that’s what saddens us the most, is not having a place for the community,” Dennis King said. The center’s outdoor attractions remain open.
