If Your Company Is A Racecar, A Business Continuity Plan Is Your Spare Tire

When Zephyr Networks asks potential client companies whether they have a business continuity plan in place, many senior executives shake their heads and say, “Why would we ever need such a thing? Everything has been going smoothly so far.” The key to this response is so far. The question is not how have things been going, but how will they go if your company faces a crisis without a business continuity plan in place.

Business Continuity Plan = Spare Tire

If your company is a racecar, what will happen if you blow a tire and you have forgotten to bring along a spare?

Is Your Company’s Spare Tire In Place & Ready To Go?

As a crisis management resource, a business continuity plan is the spare tire needed to keep your company moving forward in the right direction. Nothing is worse than blowing a tire and being left stranded on the side of the road as cars shoot past you. Actually, that is not the truth. It is even worse when you blow a tire in the middle of a race and your clients are in the stands, watching your company’s racecar dead on the side of the track.

Do you think those clients will be calling you on Monday for help? Can you imagine the word-of-mouth generated by such a devastating incident? You simply never know when a crisis will hit like an earthquake or a bad storm, and this is why a business continuity plan is essential. In the modern age of information, no business can afford to be crippled on the side of the road for any extended period of time.

The heart of a business continuity plan is to get everything operating back to normal as quickly as possible. Naturally, there are some things you just cannot plan for, but Zephyr Networks has a proven history of providing our clients with business continuity plans that work in practice.
