Assurance Software announces the acquisition of Avalution Consulting

Assurance Software, Inc., has announced the acquisition of Avalution Consulting. The announcement follows the 2019 mergers between Assurance and ClearView Continuity, as well as Avalution and BC Management.

Assurance says that the acquisition provides customers and the BCM community ‘with direct access to an unrivalled level of BCM expertise – spanning consulting, software, staffing, and data research’.

“A business continuity capability is critical for any organization, ensuring an ability to maintain operations during disasters like COVID-19,” says Jon Ezrine, Chief Executive Officer of Assurance Software. “Our vision is to help businesses be prepared. Our combined experience will enable us to deliver the best consulting and software solutions, helping organizations successfully respond to and recover from any disruptions.”

Avalution, headquartered in Cleveland, OH, was co-founded by Brian Zawada and Robert Giffin in 2005. Avalution created the Business Continuity Operating Systemâ„¢ (BCOS), a methodology to drive greater BCM success and engagement, as well as Catalyst, an industry-leading business continuity software solution.

“By joining Assurance, we’ve created a global partnership with the reach and talent to shape the future of our industry and address the most complex challenges facing organizations today,” adds Brian Zawada, Managing Director of Avalution. “Our visions for the industry align and we share the same values, which includes obsessing about putting the customer first as we plan for the future. Our team is ready to provide organizations with greater access to the solutions that address their most pressing preparedness challenges.”
