ContinuitySA scoops IRMSA award


IT service management company ContinuitySA scooped the IRMSA 2018 Industry Award for the category ‘Professional Services, Training Providers, Consultants and Auditors at the annual gala event held on 9 November.

The award acknowledged the company’s outstanding contribution to risk management. ContinuitySA CEO, Michael Davies, said the development team had worked hard to bring its Business Continuity Resilience (BCR) app to market, enabling teams to enhance business continuity management (BCM) within their organisations.

“We are very proud of our BCR app, which significantly strengthens our service offering and the value that we bring to our client,” he said.

Developed by ContinuitySA’s Advisory Services team, the BCR App is designed to provide easy ‘anywhere, anytime’ access to an organisation’s business continuity and resilience plans. Available free on any Android or IOS device, the secure, encrypted and password-protected app allows for upload of multiple types and levels of BCM plans, with permission-based access.

The free app allows for rapid activation of response plans, teams and recovery actions during a disaster, provides recovery status tracking and provides for notes and comments to be made and emailed for record-keeping purposes. With push notifications, the app keeps business continuity top-of-mind for every person with an interest in company resilience.
