Vocals Golden Season Continues with Shortlists for Two Industry Awards(April 17, 2014)
(PRWEB UK) 17 April 2014
Now in their 16th year, the CIR Awards recognise the business continuity, security, and risk professionals whose innovative strategies and industry knowledge elevate them above the rest. With Vocal up for both Specialist Company of the Year and Most Innovative Solution of the Year for Incident Workflow, the acclaimed judging panel clearly believe its work over the last year to be exceptional.
With our entries this year, we tried to focus on our unique efforts to bring business continuity to the forefront of decision makers minds, in every sector, says Vocals Trevor Wheatley-Perry. As part of the legacy of our work with the Cross-Sector Security and Communications Partnership during the 2012 Olympics, weve been tailoring our corporate output to the needs and languages of many new business sectors, encouraging them to protect their staff, assets, and business in a way that can appeal to them as individuals, as well as business leaders.
Launching Incident Workflow is evidence of this. Thanks to this software tool, for the first time any organisation, of any size, anywhere in the world can precisely replicate and manage its operations, systems, and processes during an incident; creating a panic-proof, instantly visible, paperless and accountable workflow.
2013 was a year in which we not only celebrated our achievements, Trevor continues, but used them as a springboard for a new era in business continuity and incident management.
Being shortlisted for the CIR Awards is a fantastic honour and a testament to the success of our work in the last year.
The CIR Award winners will be announced at the Awards Gala Dinner and Ceremony on 29 May 2014 at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane.
Vocal is recognised throughout the world as a trusted innovator of multi award-winning and proven business continuity and communication solutions. In 2007, Vocal launched iModus; the first fully integrated business continuity suite encompassing Notification, Planning, Mapping, Alerting, Staff Safety and Incident Management modules. A multi award-winning solution, iModus was selected as the emergency messaging system for incident management during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
On March 12th, 2014, Everbridge, the leader in Unified Critical Communications, acquired Vocal. The strategic acquisition further elevates Everbridges status as the worlds largest provider of emergency notification and critical communication solutions. With the addition of Vocal, Everbridge now offers the broadest product family in the industry, delivered through 12 distributed datacenters, and supported by employees in seven offices in North America, Europe, and Asia. The combined entity will serve more than 2,500 global clients who use the solution to communicate with over 50 million unique end-users every year.
About Incident Workflow:
Incident Workflow is all about actions; the ability to plan ahead and see what will actually happen, in any scenario, at any time. Built on the iModus platform, Incident Workflow has communications at its core; relaying processes according to the people who need to know, and manipulating data according to exacting operations and processes. We believe that Incident Workflow is the most exciting innovation the industry has seen in recent years, a new language that will transform the way incidents are managed across the world.
While it is highly innovative, Incident Workflow is beautiful in its apparent simplicity. It replicates a flow chart of any organisations process mapping software systems that its people are used to operating. Actions and priorities for varying scenarios are pre-set, one action at a time so that in even in the worst set of circumstances, an untrained member of staff could use the system to effectively run an incident.
Incident Workflow will eliminate the compromises involved in paper processes and PowerPoint planning. It will allow any organisation to build a resilient framework, step-by-step and layer-by-layer according to its processes. The added incentive here is being able to test, measure and evaluate as part of the process, leaving no stone unturned.
