eZ-PLANNER - now with the eZ button

eZ-PLANNER is the latest offering from eBRP, the developers of award-winning eBRP Suite. eZ-PLANNER is a complete set of Planning, Plan Development, Reporting & Management utilities to address the full requirements of developing viable Business Continuity and Incident Response plans. Available as a vendor-hosted SaaS solution at a budget-pleasing price.

Incorporating Risk Assessments and Business Impact Analysis, eZ-PLANNER provides the tools needed to help prioritize mitigation and plan development efforts. It utilizes Process Modeling along with Process-Application dependency mapping. This allows planners to identify risk, vulnerabilities and gaps in current operational capabilities as a prelude to building Plans. With 200+ standard built-in reports it provides information and compliance reports without having to tinker with report-generators. Planners can create Plan Templates which can be "copied and pasted" allowing end-users to develop plans faster, with less effort.

eZ-PLANNER is a powerful and flexible toolset designed for unlimited concurrent user access and provides the convenience of SaaS hosting and integrated Voice Notification (powered by Everbridge). It is everything an organization needs to get their BCM program off the starting blocks and onto the fast track.
