At PlanWrite we understand that every BC/DR project has particular characteristics and requirements that require a continuity management methodology that is both modular and flexible.

We can tailor your planning solution to meet your individual business requirements and are happy to engage at any phase of the project or simply focus on areas of your plans that need our help.

Our 4 stage methodology will deliver the following to your business:

  • Determine gaps and capabilities

  • Review risks to continuity of operations

  • Analyse your organisations current disaster preparedness

  • Identification of critical business processes and associated applications and supporting infrastructure

  • Review of your current IT infrastructure

DESIGN PHASE

  • Program management and governance

  • Development of continuity strategies for your business

  • Ways to minimise downtime
