What Makes Us Different?
Our team believes that you deserve a business continuity program tailored specifically to fit the unique needs of your organization – meaning that your organization is the starting point for everything we do. As a result, our analysis, recommendations, plans and exercises are never justified by generic “best practices” alone – instead, we combine our experience and knowledge with a deep understanding of your organization to create a continuity program that best manages your risk.
Value-Driven Business Continuity Consulting Services
Avalution believes in providing services that are custom designed to fit the unique needs of your organization – not making your needs fit a standardized template. Our approach, refined over years of focused experience, has resulted in balanced, cost-effective strategies designed to manage the risk associated with a business interruption. Our experience directly enables our team to meet your most aggressive requirements while our solutions align with executive management demands, contributing to – not getting in the way of – revenue growth, market share expansion and business process maturation.

Industry Experience Matters
Not only does Avalution have deep experience in all aspects of business continuity management, but our firm has served the unique needs of organizations in nearly all levels of government, as well as across every industry group. These experiences give us a “head start”, avoiding the situation where costly mistakes are made when focusing on the wrong aspects of the business. We recognize every organization is unique – but we also understand what makes each industry segment tick. This knowledge positions our consulting teams to deliver recommendations supported by what “others are doing”. Leveraging our knowledge and experiences saves our clients time and money – and results in credible solutions.

Customizable Business Continuity Software
Business continuity software purchases often disappoint. Package A is a 60% fit when compared to existing business continuity processes – but if we go this route, we have to change processes that have proven to be effective since the software lacks flexibility. Package B could work, but it’s too complex. And then there’s Package C – we simply can’t afford the initial cost, let alone the time and resources necessary to customize it.
Avalution’s team (with significant input from our diverse client base) developed a flexible, cost-effective platform that conforms to your most effective business continuity processes. This capability allows your team of professionals to customize virtually all aspects of the functionality, reporting and layout. We call this solution The Planning Portal. Its integrated training saves travel time and expense, and its familiar format decreases confusion and increases confidence, leading to higher usage levels. Above all else – it works well for everyone.

Key Focus - Certification Readiness - BS 25999
The business continuity industry is rapidly maturing. Regulatory requirements require action in many industries, customers are demanding business continuity protection from key suppliers, and a focus on corporate governance is leading to additional inquiries from the most senior business executives. Recent crises have also demonstrated the need for all entities - public and private - to prepare and work together in order to increase the likelihood of an effective response.
In this environment, organizational certification has emerged as a method of demonstrating commitment and readiness to key stakeholders. BS 25999, launched in November 2007 (www.bsiamericas.com), is one such example, as is existing ISO standards governing issues such as information security (ISO 27001). In the United States, Title IX is emerging as another example of voluntary certification.
