How can you make IT alerting to crises quicker?

When a crisis is in process, every second counts. So how do you make sure critical teams such as your IT team receive alerts quickly?

IT Services often have associated Service Level Agreements (SLAs) which have financial implications if breached. An unplanned outage at a data centre can cost over £5,000 a minute. The quicker responders and stakeholders receive critical alerts, the quicker they can begin to respond to the incident, and get things up and running again.

IT response team

Get information out to the IT response team faster

When a crisis hits, and an emergency alert is released, Crises Control will automatically alert all responders through multiple channels until they acknowledge receipt.

As responders acknowledge the alert, they are added to a virtual ‘war room’, and connected to the virtual command and control centre. One click, and all responders can be called into a conference call.

Faster incident resolution

Faster incident resolution

In the heat of a crisis, everyone needs to know what their tasks are without thinking. While paper or server based plans may set out those tasks, they may not be available during a crisis.

The Crises Control Incident Plan Builder and Task Manager bring incident management into the Crises Control platform, enabling workflows, task assignments, time based escalation settings, and other digital assets to be disseminated to responders quickly, so that everyone knows their roles. The Task Manager tracks every task, and records responses for improvement activity.
