At last I’ve found a BCP service for me !
Very few firms have appropriate plans. Why is this?
Two main reasons:
The BCP market comprises a number of specialist consultancies, catering for the large companies who often have in- house insurance / risk management capability, and a large budget. Plans can take many months to produce, for which the consultant charges many thousands of pounds.
The other part of the BCP business is aimed at smaller companies with little or no in-house capability where cost is very much an issue. In these situations, a software package is provided to the company that is required to produce their own plan, with no advice other than instructions on the CD. In our experience, companies find these to be just too complicated and time-consuming, and the project is abandoned soon after it has started.
As a consequence, the company is not only left out of pocket, but is totally turned off the idea of planning and continues with no plan.
Our solution provides a consultant-led service, tailored to the needs of an SME at an affordable price. We use the EU definition of an SME, as a company with up to 250 employees and annual turnover of up to £25m.
We can also provide bespoke solutions for larger companies
We have devised a simplified planning process and can provide the necessary expertise to assist you to develop your own plan. Our solution combines a practical, streamlined approach without losing any of the key features of the traditional BCP.
You have the benefit of a consultant –led planning approach, without the inherent high cost.
The resulting plan will enable you to satisfy your insurer's and customers’ requirements, and could also be advanced as part of a business case in support of any request for finance from a bank or other financial institution.
