MALMESBURY, UK – TEXTSQUIRT.com is a new service which aims to transform the way organisations communicate during emergencies.  It combines the latest cloud technology with SMS messaging to provide a global urgent messaging service.  

Mark Faithfull, CEO, commented: "TEXTSQUIRT is a powerful tool because you can use it just about anywhere - you don’t need 3G, Wifi, a computer or even a smartphone to send or receive a TEXTSQUIRT message. We use good old fashioned SMS and combine that with the latest cloud technology to securely route your messages to over 190 countries. You simply send one SMS to TEXTSQUIRT, and we broadcast that SMS to every mobile number you have added to you TEXTSQUIRT list.”

Businesses are reliant on their in-house IT systems, especially email, to communicate to their staff and clients.  TEXTSQUIRT provides a very easy to use, cost effective alternative for when those in-house systems fail.

TEXTSQUIRT’s CEO has previously worked as a senior leader in various mission critical IT organisations and founded TEXTSQUIRT to solve a simple problem: “How do you send out a service alert if your email servers are down? You need a backup service that sits completely outside your own network and it needs to be really easy to use in the rush and confusion of an emergency. You don’t want to have to rely on your Wifi working or getting a 3G signal. TEXTSQUIRT solves this by providing a service that runs over SMS and is completely independent of your own infrastructure. You can be confident we will be up if your systems go down.”

The uses for TEXTSQUIRT extend beyond typical business continuity planning scenarios such as server crashes.  Any time an urgent message needs to be delivered to customers, supporters or employees, SMS is much more effective than email. People tend to read an SMS as soon as it arrives.   The service’s global reach and use of SMS also makes it ideal for communicating to an international team - think aid workers spread across the globe.  A team leader based in the UK can pass on urgent updates and instructions simply by sending a single SMS and within seconds that message is being delivered to hundreds of workers around the world.

To celebrate the launch of the service, TEXTSQUIRT in conjunction with Disaster Recovery Journal, is offering new customers a 10% discount off their first year’s subscription if they quote the coupon code: DRJ10 during sign up.

About TEXTSQUIRT.com

TEXTSQUIRT is a relay service for SMS messages. It uses a distribution list stored securely in TEXTSQUIRT’s cloud platform.  When a subscriber sends an SMS to their personal TEXTSQUIRT number, that SMS is then automatically resent to every member of their distribution list using local SMS gateways all over the world.  The distribution list can be amended by authorised users at any time to add or remove numbers simply by sending SMS messages to TEXTSQUIRT.

OTTAWA, Canada – Diablo Technologies announced today that is has filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court, Northern District of California against Netlist (NASDAQ: NLST) for unfair business practices that violate Diablo’s Intellectual Property (IP) rights. Diablo’s Memory Channel Storage™ (MCS™) is a new and innovative architecture that neither infringes upon, nor misappropriates any Netlist IP rights. MCS-based products and the Netlist HyperCloud™ DIMM are designed to serve different purposes and are not interchangeable.  

The contract between the two companies clearly assigns legal ownership of the implementation IP in the HyperCloud chipset to Diablo. As a result, Diablo is seeking damages for breach of contract for Netlist’s attempt to usurp the company’s IP rights.

“We have been very patient throughout this entire process and it is now time for us to share our side of the story.  We will demonstrate definitively that products based on the Memory Channel Storage architecture do not use any Netlist IP,” said Riccardo Badalone, CEO and Co-founder of Diablo Technologies. “MCS-based devices are realizing tremendous demand and we are very happy with the success our partners are achieving with them.”

Access Expands in New Jersey

Written by

The File Annex, Inc. acquired

LIVERMORE, Calif. – Rob Alston, CEO of Access, has announced the company’s recent acquisition of The File Annex, Inc., located in Buena, just outside of Vineland, in southern New Jersey. This transaction is the company’s 70th since its founding and represents an expansion of its Philadelphia and New Jersey markets presence.
 
The File Annex was formed in 1990 by Gene Gallaher as a result of the need he recognized for offsite records management services based on his experience in government contracting data management. Starting with one small warehouse building and one van, then acquiring another local records management company in 1993, the File Annex grew to include a dedicated staff and records storage facilities located on two campuses, serving an ever-growing list of valued customers.
 
Access Vice President Tim Walker is coordinating the full integration of this new Branch and its clients. Tim shared, “This expansion eastward from Philadelphia is a natural for us. We can now easily serve all of southern New Jersey from the Buena facilities and, as we have to date, from our headquarters in Aston, Pennsylvania. The former File Annex clients we are now bringing on board will be very pleased with the new, expanded capabilities and services we at Access can provide to them.”
 
Mike Gallaher, former Operations Manager of The File Annex, will continue to run the business in collaboration with the Access – Philadelphia operations team.
 
Access President John Chendo explained, “Gene Gallaher recognized the need to provide records and information management services in this area years ago. He recently recognized the many benefits a sale of his company to Access would afford both his clients and his team members. I look forward to discussing these unique Access benefits with more and more business owners, who like Gene before them, are now considering the opportunity to partner with the industry leader.”   
 
As the largest privately held records and information management services provider in the United States, Access now serves 31 markets across the nation and in Latin America.

CROSBY, TX — Abletek, an industry leader in unified communications, announced today that the company is educating its customers on a breakthrough development in high-speed wireless Internet, which can increase the number of customers that many small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) attract. The breakthrough is called Hosted Wi-Fi, which is essentially a private Internet hotspot for SMBs to offer to their customers. By offering customers free WiFi, a business can regulate and optimize Internet data usage and even create a private network for them to use. The overarching benefits of this technology is that it attracts new people to your location, it gets people to stay longer and gives them a reason to come back next time.  
       With the overwhelming majority of people simply expecting free Wi-Fi everywhere they go, it’s no wonder that this technology has taken off. Most business owners simply use the standard Internet provided to them by ISPs, and they’re missing out on the high performing Internet connectivity that customers have come to expect. Furthermore, standard Internet lacks safety controls, which can be very dangerous for business owners. For example, if even one customer visits a dangerous site and contracts a virus, it could spread quickly to the rest of the network. By utilizing Hosted Wi-Fi safeguards like firewalls and blacklisted sites, businesses can eliminate these risks before they become a problem. 
       The central reason to offer Hosted Wi-Fi to customers is that it increases profitability. The longer that a business has a customer at its location, the greater the likelihood of purchases, brand education and return visits. The value of having a customer at your location is incredible, because businesses have so much time to engage customers and opportunity to influence their purchasing decisions. For example, a café that has Hosted Wi-Fi can provide secure, high-speed Internet for the growing remote worker population. The longer a patron remains at the shop, the more likely they are to buy additional goods and refer friends.  Another example, are hotels and motels who simply need to offer Hosted Wi-Fi in order to attract guests in the first place. For many business people this is a “deal breaker” and acts as one of the key factors in their decision to stay at one hotel versus another. This easily overlooked addition to nearly any business can increase revenue and bottom line profitability. 
        Businesses spend tens of thousands of dollars on building extravagant websites, which only retain customers for an approximate 10-20 seconds, according to research by Chao Liu and colleagues. When someone visits a physical location, business owners can captivate their attention for hours at a time. Meanwhile, business owners can influence their customers’ purchasing decisions the entire time. For its minimal cost, this investment makes sense and it’s no wonder businesses are working with Abletek to deploy this powerful technology.

How Closely is Your Organization's BCM Program Aligned to ISO 22301?

The International Consortium for Organizational Resilience (ICOR) is committed to increasing the resilience of organizations in an effort to increasing the resilience of communities world-wide.  As part of this commitment, ICOR has created a process to formally recognize an organization's Self-Declaration of Conformity to ISO 22301.  This process is intended to support and promote eventual third-party certification by providing organizations a tool to improve their Business Continuity Management (BCM) programs and to conform to ISO 22301 requirements.

The ICOR Self-Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) to ISO 22301 is available to organizations of all sizes globally.  It is a process where an organization declares formally that its Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) meets the requirements of ISO 22301:  Societal Security - Business Continuity Management Systems - Requirements.

One element of this process is the development of an ISO 22301 Maturity Model that organizations can use to self-assess the capability and maturity of their Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) using the International Standard ISO 22301 as a reference.  The ISO 22301 Maturity Model excel tool was created using the Virtual BCMM as a reference. 

 

Determination of an ICOR verified Self-Declaration of Conformity

Determination of meeting the requirements is based on a combination of the following scores and criteria:

  1. Completion and submission of ISO 22301 Maturity Model with a minimum overall score of 2.5 with no single competency area scoring less than 2.0.  3.0 is a perfect score.
  2. Successful completion of Biographical Data and review by ISO 22301 Auditor
  3. Successful completion of BCMS Information and review by ISO 22301 Auditor
  4. Submission of Required Documents or "Proofs" and review by ISO 22301 Auditor

Upon successful completion of the online application (including completion of the ISO 22301 Maturity Model) your application will be evaluated by an ISO 22301 Lead Auditor with credentials earned from ICOR, BSI, or PECB.  Estimated time for evaluation is less than 30 days.  

If your application is verified, your organization's self-declaration of conformity will be listed on the ICOR SDoC webpage.  In addition, your organization will receive a certificate verifying your self-declaration and may use the ISO 22301 SDoC "mark" as evidence of the ICOR verification.  Verification is valid for 3 years.

Research shows how to assess and improve the critical management and planning of finite human resources to support business growth objectives.

READING, UK – Organisations that improve the resource management and capacity planning of their people are significantly reducing their top pain points and, positioning themselves to better capitalise on business opportunities. This is the main conclusion of “The 2014 State of Resource Management and Capacity Planning Report”, commissioned by Planview® and conducted by Appleseed Partners and Dig Market Research.

The study found that the most mature organisations reduced the top pain points – including the common dilemma of overcommitting their resources and insufficient visibility into resource capacity – by 30 to 60 percent. This is based on a survey of nearly 500 global planning and resource leaders, who assessed their maturity in both resource management and capacity planning as well as identified their top pain points and causes, business risks, software use, and best practices.

According to the results, organisations that are mastering the resource dilemma:

  • Understand that resource management and capacity planning are distinct but interrelated disciplines that require attention and improvement to advance resource utilisation, efficiency and return;
  • Have a holistic view into both pipeline demand and resource capacity; and
  • Invest in the people, processes, and tools to improve in both areas with statistically significant reductions in the pain points that lead to resource overcommitment and underutilisation.
  • Proof that organisations have made significant improvement towards solving the most common resource management and planning pain points;
  • Steps for assessing their organisation’s resource management and capacity planning maturity to identify their level as a Resource Executor, an Aspiring Planner, or a Capacity Master; and
  • Actionable information and recommendations for implementing the five key practices top performers share in order to increase in maturity and achieve business benefits.

“Companies are rushing into new projects to drive business growth while sustaining the current state of business, all with a finite supply of shared resources. As a result, organisations overcommit and underutilise their resources, which negatively impacts project timelines, business opportunities, customer satisfaction, innovation speed, productivity and budgets,” said Maureen Carlson, partner at Appleseed Partners and chief researcher and report author. “The aim of this report is to show companies how to better deliver on their business goals with the most transparent, efficient and intelligent use of their resources.”

Organisations seeking to improve their resource management and capacity planning capabilities can access the report for:
