Accelerate business continuity planning by converting manual BC processes into intelligent, automated workflows. Plan4Continuity combines the 5 most important elements of continuity planning – people, assets, services, locations and vendors/suppliers to, among others, streamline management and boost accountability and facilitates effortless reporting.
The reality is that there is no real advance notice that a disaster is ready to strike. Even with some lead time, things can go wrong as every incident is unique and unfolds in unexpected ways. That is why a BCP is crucial to ensure your business continues operating during an unplanned event.

How the tool works: Activating the 5 components of every Business Continuity Plan
Business continuity planning by location
Your business may have different entities (or "locations" as we refer to it) such as branches, regions, buildings, floors, departments, even home offices and temporary remote sites. Business continuity can be managed more effectively if you divide your business into locations.
People are a business’s most valuable assets
They are the ones who control and use assets, deal with vendors, perform services, make decisions, pay wages and liaise with clients. People, from plan managers to action owners, need to be involved in your continuity planning.
Without services, no business can function
Every company depends on external and internal services. Without electricity, internet connectivity, IT support, and telephony a company would be unable to function. When these services are disrupted, the Disruptive Event Management need to provide alternative scenarios.
A business needs assets to provide services
An important part of business continuity is identifying the assets that are essential to business operations and to include these assets in business continuity plans. These can include basic service plans or schedules for when the services rendered by these assets become disrupted.
Vendors need to be active participants
Vendors and suppliers of services play a critical role in the ongoing function of a business and therefore need to be active participants in your business continuity planning. They form an essential link in the supply and disaster recovery chain.
Manage a live disruptive event quickly and efficiently
A live disruptive event can be managed efficiently across multiple locations and with several teams.
Build your Business Continuity plans with minimal effort
Plan4Continuity eanbles you to build your plans using the latest innovative cloud technologies. You can access your plans from any internet connected device at any time.
Continuously control and improve your Business Continuity plans
The setup of your disaster recovery plans requires management. Your plans need to be regularly simulated, scheduled and audited. Compliance requirements can be improved, tested and met.
It is crucial that a disaster or live disruptive event is managed efficiently to ensure the business is up and running as quickly as possible.
