Maybe you’ve been meaning to think about BCP (Business Continuity Planning). Someday.
After the winter board meeting.
After the product launch.
After you cross the last item off your never-ending to-do list.
The thing is, you can’t afford to wait that long. Because your BCP – or lack thereof – has a direct impact on your bottom line. Here are three things BCP could do for you:
1. Strengthen your brand perception
In a turbulent world, it’s not only prudent to have contingency plans in place for continued operations of your company, it’s rapidly becoming a baseline expectation. If your company’s website FAQ or sales materials includes a section on your business continuity preparedness, it shows current and prospective clients alike that you are a savvy, safe bet.
2. Upgrade your offer
A solid business continuity plan could allow you to uplevel your offer. Say, to a 100% SLA. Which could allow you to attract bigger clients. (More on that in a minute.)
3. Protect your business
Disaster will strike your business someday, in one form or another. If you’re ready for it, you have a much higher chance of ensuring that your business will survive – and continue to thrive.

With Involta’s solution, the company was able to offer 100% SLA for power availability and began attracting enterprise clients.
Then a disaster paralyzed the company’s primary facility….
