Intercard’s cloud data storage helps FEC owners recover from fire
Earlier this autumn, a fire ravaged the King Family Fun Centre, 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.
Cashless technology provider Intercard’s use of data storage in a secure cloud environment meant the Kings did not lose any of their business data, despite the damage to their computer servers. “Intercard had all their point-of-sale data backed up,” said Intercard sales rep Amber Lambert. “This has made it possible to retrieve data and get access to the financial reporting they need for their insurance claim.”
Owners Dennis and Melinda King 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 centre’s outdoor attractions remain open.
The Kings put out a call to the community for help with the clean-up. Intercard’s 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.
Opened in November 1969 and originally known as Tiffany’s Skate Inn, the centre has been family owned and operated for over 50 years.
