Helping companies and communities to build resilience into their operations and networks is the mission that Crises Control was created to achieve. So when we were introduced to business transformation consultants, Alchemmy, and their Application for Resilient Communities (ARC) platform, we realised that we had found some kindred spirits.
London is home town to both companies and it is a city that has suffered more than most in recent months with the terrorist attacks at Westminster, Borough Market and Parsons Green, and the catastrophe at Grenfell Tower.
So, we were delighted to be able to support the recent Creating Resilient Communities event hosted by Alchemmy, London First and Dogfi.sh, to discuss how to connect communities and put into place information exchange between community members.
Technology has increased the range of threats to our communities, from extended supply chains, to cyber security threats and even encrypted social networks that motivate and inform terrorist attacks. But technology is now also providing many ways to help connect communities and increase their resilience in times of stress.
Crises Control, Alchemmy and ARC have a shared mission, and complementary communication tools, that can facilitate a rapid sharing of information during such crisis incidents. So it is only natural that we have decided to sign a partnership agreement to work together more closely in the future.
We will be hosting more events together, looking at how we can integrate the Crises Control and ARC platforms to improve the service we provide to our customers and finding other ways in which to advance understanding and awareness of the benefits of business and community resilience.
It is a big mission, but together, we can do great things. We will keep you posted on developments.
Chairman, Crises Control
