Will You Have Access to Your BCP (Business Continuity Plan) during a Disaster?

March 27, 2018
Business Industry

You need a plan. Whether it’s an emergency plan, a DRP plan (disaster recovery plan), or even a plan for cleaning your garage. Having a plan gives you a clear outline of how to approach, assess, and respond. You also need clear and unfettered access to your plan, and this is especially true for your BCP (business continuity plan).

Disasters happen, and recovery can be painstaking if you are not prepared or if you don’t have the resources you need at your disposal.

How can CrisisGo help with your business continuity plan?

CrisisGo has the reporting tools needed to identify and mitigate risks

If you’re going to create strategies based on the recognition of threats your business faces, you need to be able to thoroughly assess and review potential weak spots, flaws, and risks. 

Our Tips and Reporting tool is available for computers and mobile devices, and it features easily customized templates for daily safety inspection reports, risk management reports, and audit reports. With mobile access to safety reporting, your people can quickly and discreetly report any safety issue they see. All reported information is sent to and stored in an online console that can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection.

With this information, your safety personnel can review the information and use your findings to create data-driven decisions about your business continuity plan. Not only will the information help you develop your plan, you can also use our reporting tool to continually assess and improve your plan based on the safety threats that occur.

CrisisGo provides mobile access to your business continuity plan by storing it on your mobile devices.

When disaster strikes, you will need quick and easy access to your protocols. It doesn’t matter whether a building fire has destroyed your headquarters or a data breach has haltered your operations. You and your people need to know, in clear and specific terms, what to do next.

CrisisGo’s checklist tool allows you to put your business continuity plan on all your mobile devices and computers, so you can always have access, no matter where you are. Our checklist tool is role-based, so your staff won’t have to hunt for their responsibilities in a crisis. They will see which duties they need to perform and what information they need to know. You can build out your roles to ensure that the right people always see the right information.

The nature of the checklist puts instructions into specific actionable steps, which allows your people to take a step-by-step approach to recovery. And just like the reporting tool, every step progress is recorded in our online console for review.

CrisisGo’s platform features multimedia communication

At CrisisGo, we believe that communication is the cornerstone of safety. Disaster recovery, like every other type of emergency, requires communication. Our safety platform not only gives you access to the critical information you need, you are also able to communicate throughout the process on a unified messaging system.

Your phone lines or your internet might be down during a disaster, and you don’t want to rely on mass text messages or walkie-talkies for crisis communication. CrisisGo features one-way and two-way message groups that allow you to broadcast information out to your entire organization or exchange communication with specific groups or departments of employees.

CrisisGo’s message groups also support multimedia messaging. You can use image, audio, video, or other files to clearly and effective share information during a crisis.
