Crises Control has received another award shortlisting, this time for BCM Planning Software of the Year at the CIR Business Continuity Awards 2021.
The CIR Business Continuity Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the great work done across the business continuity and resilience sector over the last year. The BCM Planning Software of the Year award recognises the business continuity planning tools that provide added value for customers.
Crises Control Incident Response Planner Module
The vision at Crises Control is to democratise business continuity and resilience planning, and give every organisation the ability to create effective crisis management plans that will improve their response to all forms of crisis, saving time, money, reputation, and even lives.
The Crises Control incident response planner and incident response manager modules enable organisations to fully integrate their business continuity and resilience planning with their emergency mass notifications platform, bringing their crisis management tools to the response team’s fingertips.
The unique Crisis Control Incident Response Plan Builder gives organisations access to over 200 incident type templates that they can customise and build on to create their own business continuity plans. Once created, the plans can be stored in the Incident Manager, alongside actionable items such as response team contact lists, pre-drafted messages, and task checklists.
Creating Incident Response Plans for Covid-19
The Covid-19 pandemic has tested business business continuity plans on a grand scale. Very few organisations were prepared for the business impacts of a global pandemic that forced employees to work from home, suppliers to limit production runs, and reduced services all round.
At Crises Control, we were quick to see the benefits that our emergency mass notification platform could have for organisations dealing with this non-traditional crisis. We leveraged the Incident Response Plan Builder and Incident Manager modules to create a series of pandemic response toolkits to enable our customers to create the plans for, and carry out mitigation responses to the disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Each toolkit covers a different pandemic related scenario such as employee infection and quarantine, building closure, service interruption, remote working, and supply chain disruption. They contain pre-written messages to employees, customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders, recommended protocols for responding to different forms of incident, and lists of actions to support the organisation to return to business as normal as quickly as possible.
These pandemic toolkits have supported organisations and helped them keep employees and customers informed of issues or disruptions to the supply of products or services, created a united incident response, and ultimately keep business running as close to normal as possible during the pandemic.
CIR Business Continuity Awards 2021 Shortlist… A Fantastic Achievement
Shalen Sehgal, MD of Crises Control gave his reaction to our shortlisting:
“At Crises Control we constantly innovate to find new ways to support organisations in their business continuity and resilience efforts.
The Incident Planner module was added to the Crises Control platform at the end of 2019, and who could have predicted that it would come in so useful so soon?
The Incident Planner module enables both experienced and non-experienced business continuity managers to create effective, actionable incident response plans, and immediately link them to their business continuity tools through the Crises Control platform. This was particularly useful in the last year as business continuity managers everywhere suddenly found themselves having to create new response plans overnight.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire team at Crises Control for their hard work and dedication to supporting our customers every single day. This award shortlisting is testament to the success of all your efforts. Well done team!”
