OAKVILLE, ON / ACCESSWIRE / November 17th, 2020 / CloudOak is pleased to announce its strategic partnership with Portland-ME based Readiness Associates, an international health, safety, and preparedness consultancy.

Readiness Associates, an international consultancy partnering with workplaces looking to improve their disaster preparedness, business resiliency, and the health and wellbeing of their employees, joined forces with CloudOak to add Plan4Continuity to their preparedness and risk portfolio.

Businesses across the world today are facing the challenge of ensuring business continuity more than ever before. The current pandemic saw private organizations and government institutions scrambling to set up and launch business continuity planning measures to counter as much of the business and human consequences of the coronavirus as possible. Plan4Continuity’s business continuity and business process automation plans are uniquely developed to go beyond the traditional disaster scenarios to address events that can naturally occur in the scope of business.

“Health care providers and partners, particularly in rural markets, are concerned that they do not have the necessary resources or expertise to ensure business continuity. This is where Plan4Continuity can make a difference. Readiness Associates’ credibility and their ability to reach more than 4 000 healthcare facilities combined with Plan4Continuity’s flawlessly coordinated solutions and streamlining features will help all stakeholders cut through the clutter to offer tangible help during this pandemic. We are actively taking steps to meet both current and future IT requirements of IT professionals for them to, in turn, meet their customers’ needs. It is for this reason that we are excited about and confident in our new partnership with Readiness Associates,” says Jeff Collier, CEO and Founder of CloudOak.

Plan4Continuity, an innovative SaaS solution, accelerates business continuity planning by converting manual business continuity processes into intelligent, automated workflows across any vertical with a live, cloud-based application. The best moniker with which to describe Plan4Continuity is ACORN: Automate, Communicate, Orchestrate, Report, and Neutralize.

“We identified CloudOak as a key partner because of their high-quality solutions, aggressive price points and service excellence,” said Michael J. Boardman, Founder and CEO of Readiness Associates. “A key attribute of the Plan4Continuity SaaS solution is its adherence to the ISO 22301 Standards for Business Continuity and the ability to automate processes and provide audit-worthy reports and 24/7 services via a secure cloud connection. We believe our Readiness Associates clients and partners will easily build, maintain, and utilize Plan4Continuity for all disruptive events.”

CloudOak is confident that its flagship SaaS solution offered to SMEs in partnership with Readiness Associates will not only become critical to business continuity and automation during the pandemic but also be utilized to communicate, collaborate, protect and exchange data when managing a remote workforce.
