Strategic BCP® Introduces Access to ZipBridge Emergency Conference Calling for ResilienceONE® BCM Software Users

Instant outbound conference call capabilities, offering improved options for crisis management communication, provided FREE to customers for limited time

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. – Strategic BCP, Inc., a team of business continuity management (BCM) specialists, has announced a new service option for users of its cloud-based ResilienceONE® BCM software. For a limited time, all current and new ResilienceONE users have FREE access to instant outbound conference calls through ZipBridge Emergency Conference Calling services.

With the ZipBridge integration, ResilienceONE users are able to pull up a Call List or create one on the fly, and launch a ZipBridge conference call for all the people on the list. Each participant can be called on two different numbers, and if the calls are not answered ZipBridge sends an SMS text message and/or email with instructions on how to call in later. This assures that as many response team members as possible are aware of the situation and able to communicate simultaneously on a conference call.

This latest capability being offered to ResilienceONE users provides a free opportunity to add a higher degree of confidence for executing crisis plans managed in ResilienceONE. There is no need to maintain information in dual systems; information kept current in ResilienceONE is passed dynamically to ZipBridge when a call is launched from within the Notification section of ResilienceONE.

"ResilienceONE incorporates many practical features that give users information and tools for better business continuity planning, disaster recovery, and crisis management, in real-world scenarios," says Frank Perlmutter, president and co-founder of Strategic BCP. "Between the cloud-based accessibility of plans managed in ResilienceONE and the instant conference call accessibility offered through the ZipBridge service, response teams now have a better chance of coordinating and implementing the appropriate responses to a wide range of incidents."

"We are proud to be a part of Strategic BCP's vision to find new ways to enhance the value they deliver to their clients," adds Leidy Smith, President of ZipBridge LLC. "Strategic BCP knows that communication is critical to incident management and therefore anything that enhances communications for their customers will enhance the value of their ResilienceONE BCM software."
