Vocal, one of the world’s leading providers of incident management and business continuity communication solutions, has scooped a prestigious award in this year’s Business Continuity Awards.
The CIR Business Continuity Awards recognise those business continuity, security, resilience and risk professionals whose innovative strategies and approach to the business make them stand out.
‘We are delighted to have won this award. 2012 was an exceptional year for Vocal and we are pleased to see that recognised,’ said Trevor Wheatley-Perry, Vocal’s Managing Director.
‘The award is a credit to all of our team members who have worked hard towards this point for the last ten years. Both the company and product awards highlight our collaboration partnerships with the UK’s emergency services, businesses and support organisations. Thanks to hard work, initiative and a close working relationship with our clients, we have gained a unique perspective as world leaders on incident management that has allowed our business continuity and communications solutions to be second to none.’
Vocal won the award for Best Contribution to Continuity and Resilience trophy in partnership with the Cross-Sector Safety and Security Communications Partnership (CSSC) for creating a new communications infrastructure for London leading up to the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Trevor continues: ‘We are extremely proud to have been part of the CSSC project which was the first of its kind across the globe. It has left an amazing legacy for London’s business community and will ensure critical information reaches those who need to know, when they need it and help to keep our capital safe and secure. It’s a clear example that, although Vocal is a commercial organisation, the work we do is incredibly important to the safety of millions of people and the security of the places in which they live and work.’
The winners of the 2013 CIR Business Continuity Awards were announced at an awards gala dinner at the Hilton on Park Lane in London.
