A number of unexpected situations could cause a company to temporarily or permanently lose access to their offices and associated critical records, software and equipment. While some businesses have a basic disaster continuity plan in place, this plan may be untested or written with little or no expertise of how to ensure business continuity. This suggests that some companies may utilize consultants to provide this expertise. What attributes should companies look for in choosing a reputable consultant?
Web-based systems that facilitate seamless integration of multiple plan types into an easy-to-use electronic interface are typically very beneficial to any corporation. The ability to incorporate intuitive navigation and response tools from a remote location may be necessary if conditions limit access to your customary location. In addition, a web-based business continuity system provides cost-saving maintenance features while providing up real time updates as situations progress.
