Vendor Continuity Compliance: Tipping the odds in your favor

Does it feel long a losing bet to perform all of the right activities to integrate Vendor Continuity into your Continuity and Risk Management Programs?  The fact is, organizations are more and more integrated with third party partners, vendors and suppliers for the success of their day-to-day operations. Third parties provide critical business functions that contribute to the bottom line and, sometimes, are even more critical when either you or they experience a major disruption.  Risk Officers expect you to help manage Vendor Continuity risks, but how will you do it the right way? What happens when this third party experiences a crisis or disruption and can no longer support you with vital services, parts or supplies in a timely manner? Come and find out what Vendor Continuity is, why it might be important to you and how to develop the right Vendor Continuity program that will have great results.

About Continuity Logic
Continuity Logic has been at the forefront of business continuity management (BCM) software since 2006. The company’s software is deployed with some of the world’s largest corporations and leading brands, supporting often highly sophisticated requirements. It is also deployed with a wide range of mid-sized organisations who want a more immediate ‘out-of-the-box’ solution for their needs. Both see our software as a way to future-proof their investment of both time and money through delivering not only capability for today’s requirements but also for tomorrow’s possibilities.
There are three central capabilities that we seek to fulfil with our solution. These capabilities act as an important starting point for understanding the power that our software may have to offer your own organisation and your role within it.
Data-Driven and Document-Driven BCM
An effective business continuity program gathers and has access to a trove of corporate data, all of which taken together has the potential to offer an array of insights into risk and operational management. Leading practitioners have started to embrace this and, by delivering on the potential of this data-driven approach, have accelerated their value to their organisations. Continuity Logic provides a core structure and the analytical tools with which to maximise this capability. On-demand reports, drill down dashboards, geo-data and what-if analysis all contribute to an unrivalled ability to deliver value to the business.
Total Engagement Across the Organisation
Most BCM solutions have failed to deliver on this and end up as a centralised repository used by a select few. Continuity Logic addresses this through two primary mechanisms. First, we have implemented our GuideMe approach which literally takes the user step-by-step through the items they need to complete. Second, we provide a level of customisability (see Customisation on Demand) which means that every aspect of the solution can reflect your own organisation’s processes where required. So the solution looks familiar while fitting with the business flow and structures of even the most complex organisations. This provides an unmatched level of usability with which to deliver a step change around resilience.
Power Out-of-the-Box with Customisation on Demand
Clients who want a quick return on investment tend to start with one of our out-of-the-box templates. These provide different approaches to a BCM program and allow the user to select that which most closely matches their needs. But the key is that these clients are not then constrained by their initial decisions. As they learn over time and wish to add further data items, or maybe adjust the plan layout, the process is simple. On the other hand, users who have precise and exacting requirements are equally well catered for. These are typically larger, more complex organisations that have learned over time, and often extensive experience, that one specific BCM program structure is essential for their success. Continuity Logic can deliver exactly what they want and, as importantly, without any software code amendments or additions.
