Key Benefits of our BCMS

Posted on January 25, 2019

Why is C2’s BCMS the best ‘Business Continuity Management Software on the market? What are the key benefits to my organisation? Can your software help release the burden on my resources and streamline and automate our BC processes?

AUTOMATION OF BUSINESS CONTINUITY FUNCTIONS

Embedding a BCMS within an organisation allows for the automation of key Business Continuity functions, freeing staff to deploy a resilience culture within the organisation, creating better understanding of business continuity and a more effective response.

There are significant time savings associated with implementing a BCM software, including plan automation, creating, formatting, version controlling and managing key documents such as Business Impact Analysis (BIA) reports, which our software does for you.

Contact lists in one or many plans are automatically updated whenever contact details are changed, which reduces the administrative burden and ensures that the plans have the right people listed with the right contact details –essential for effective incident response. Plan owners can trigger incremental or major reviews of plans when a new template is issued, when there is business change, or as part of a review cycle, depending on the organisation’s requirements.

ALIGNED TO INTERNATIONAL BEST PRACTICE AND OTHER KEY STANDARDS

C2 has vast experience in assisting clients to not only achieve but to maintain their certifications. Our software is aligned to ISO 22301:2012 – Societal Security – Business Continuity Management Systems, which is global best practice.

The BIA tool aligns to the new ISO 22317: 2015 – Societal Security – Business Continuity Management Systems – Guidelines for Business Impact Analysis (BIA) which helps to give the organisation further confidence that it is implementing BIA in accordance with the best possible practice.

PROVIDING CONFIDENCE IN RESPONSE

Our software helps to provide assurance that your organisation can respond quickly and effectively to significant disruptions and incidents, effectively manage recovery and return to normality. The system has a fully functional Incident Management Notification capability, enabling you to communicate vital information and actions to key personnel during an incident. Our mobile app keeps you UpToDate on the go, providing you with access to your plans and incident notification functionality.

MEASURE PERFORMANCE

The application enables the organisation to measure compliance against regulations, statutory requirements and governance obligations with its integrated and comprehensive compliance monitoring tool and report generation functionality. C2’s BCMS allows you to measure your supply chain resilience, as well as conduct your own internal audits and GAP analysis against any standards or best practice.

SECURITY

Our software is the most secure business continuity management software available. It makes use of state-of-the-art data security, system access and authentication technology to ensure that that BCM documentation always remains secure. Our industry leading user authentication allows us to provide Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and Single Sign-On (SSO) solutions to suit your organisational requirements. 

While our default solution is cloud-based, we can offer an on-premise option for those clients that require this for their own security requirements.  

BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN TEMPLATES

Business Continuity Plans can be effectively managed through an integrated dynamic template system, which gives the organisation a consistent method for creating and updating plans across the organisation. We can also configure existing plans into the template system. 

Multiple templates can be configured on the application for Location Business Continuity Plans, Departmental Business Continuity Plans, Business Continuity Work Instructions, and Crisis Management Plans to name a few. All these templates extract live data from across the system whenever you access a plan, which means that they will always be as up to date as the last key stroke.
