A Business Continuity Plan your staff will actually use…
Do your staff know what to do when an incident happens?
Our Plan424 System puts your business continuity plan where
it's immediately accessible — on your employees' phones.
Designed and built for the modern mobile environment, Plan424 includes
a large set of example team plans which you can easily adapt to your needs.
Risk Assessment Toolkit
It can be a lot of work keeping track of activities, resources, and dependencies to create a Business Impact Analysis ,
a Risk Register, or a Disruption Timeline. Our Risk Assessment Toolkit
makes life a lot easier, particularly if you are not satisfied with a purely qualitative analysis.
It also provides a wealth of additional information to help you allocate budgets or manage a disruption.
We can create your business continuity plan, review a plan to ensure it meets your needs,

in producing cost-effective plans for companies with limited budgets.
