Business continuity briefs:
5th March 2014

'Business continuity briefs' provides a summary of new product and services press releases and other useful resources published recently:

Send Word Now to provide emergency communication services to Canadian North Airlines
Send Word Now has announced its selection by Canadian North Airlines to provide emergency notification and incident management services. The two fully integrated solutions will enable the Alberta-based airline to rapidly alert and mobilize personnel, while better coordinating response efforts to urgent situations, such as inclement weather.

For Canadian North, the decision to acquire new technologies in support of its business continuity plan meant finding the best offering for fast and reliable communications.

With Send Word Now, Canadian North will be able to quickly send urgent company-wide messages using a variety of methods, including phone, SMS and email. The solution’s Get Word Back feature will allow the airline to obtain essential feedback from message recipients in support of its comprehensive employee accountability and safety measures.

Canadian North will also take full advantage of Send Word Now’s extensive conference bridging capabilities and Self-Registration Portal to further enhance its emergency communications strategy.

Additionally, Canadian North will use Send Word Now’s Incident Management Service to oversee and handle complex events from a central, fully integrated dashboard.


Vocal introduces ‘Emergency Channel’
Global business continuity software specialist Vocal has launched another innovative tool to help organizations minimise downtime and communicate vital information in the event of an incident.

Vocal’s new product, known as Emergency Channel, is a corporate ‘dark site’ facility. When the lights go out and traditional systems grind to a halt during a business-affecting incident, stakeholders can go over to the dark site to find up-to-the-minute information about the status, progression, and relevant safety instructions of the incident in question.

Whilst a dark site traditionally refers to information prepared in advance of a situation, the Emergency Channel gives users complete control in keeping content up to date in real-time, automatically.
