Redmond, WA July 14th 2008 — Quantivate, a three year old startup out of Redmond Washington has released new functionality to automate the process of creating and managing business continuity plans. This new functionality is available immediately in Prizm, Quantivate’s web-based business continuity management platform. “One of the biggest pain points of doing business continuity in today’s fast paced world is that once a you print out a disaster recovery or business continuity plan it is quickly out of date. Our new workflow functionality combined with our ability to take data in from any data source means that your plan will stay updated real-time.” says Andy Vanderhoff, President of Quantivate
The increasing severity and duration of disasters has made business continuity a priority for all organizations: public, private, large and small. Quantivate provides the expertise and software at an affordable price so that all organizations can be prepared for tomorrow, today. The addition of workflow functionality means that Quantivate customers will be guided through the streamlined process of creating a plan. After it is created, the software will automatically email when updates are due. If users don’t complete assigned tasks the software can alert the appropriate management. “Workflow helps ensure that the dollars invested in business continuity are not wasted. Using Prizm, the time it takes to create and update business continuity plans is reduced by over 40%” notes Michael Carter, Vice President of Quantivate consulting services.
