Business Continuity Solutions

When a business is disrupted because of a server hardware failure, or another disastrous event, it will almost certainly cost money. How much this costs, is likely to depend on how quickly operations can return to normal. And it’s not just about lost revenue, extra expenses usually mean reduced profits!

You can’t rely on insurance to cover all costs and it can be impossible to replace customers that defect to the competition.

What if your building floods, or your office is fire damaged? Your business might have to relocate, temporarily, or depending on the nature of the disaster, even permanently.

Companies that have a business continuity plan in place reduce the risk to their business, as well as their reputation. Shackleton can help. We want to make sure that your business carries on trading, with minimal disruption to you or your customers. 

With expert advice and the correct business continuity management, you can recover from even major incidents, quickly and easily. 

Proper Planning and Contingency

Contingency plans are all about planning and preparation to ensure your business can continue to operate in the event of a disaster; so that it is able to recover to an operational state within a reasonably short period.

Business continuity is a component part of any disaster recovery, or risk management planning. It provides a structured method of identifying potential sources of business disruption and assesses their likelihood and impact.

Even the most basic business contingency plan, should be designed to keep essential functions up and running, during and after a disaster. This will allow your business to fully recover with as little disruption as possible.

Continuity is important for all organisations, regardless of size but it is not always practical for smaller businesses, depending on the availability of sufficient budget.

Shackleton can answer your questions and advise how to keep your business trading normally, in the event of a disaster.
