Critchlow Announces Sungard Deal

Critchlow Announces Sungard Deal


Emergency management specialist, Critchlow, announced today that it has added world-class business continuity planning software-as-a-service – Sungard Assurance – to its range of solutions.

The deal sees Critchlow become an authorised reseller of Sungard Availability Services in New Zealand and Australia.

Sungard is a recognised provider of disaster recovery services, managed IT services, information availability consulting services and business continuity management software to over 7,000 clients worldwide.

“Business continuity planning is something that business leaders recognise they should be doing, but without a tool that is accessible and understandable, many don't bother or simply do the basics,” says Critchlow managing director, Steve Critchlow.

”In bringing this solution to market, we want to reduce user pain points around operational resiliency and compliance, and instil a sense of confidence in business outcomes for business leaders and business continuity professionals alike.

“Sungard Assurance shifts the focus of business continuity practices from planning alone, and extends the focus to outcomes.

“It brings a real focus to issues like minimising interruption to services, protecting corporate reputation, enhancing shareholder value and safeguarding employees before, during and after a disaster.”

Mr Critchlow believes Sungard Assurance’s iterative approach to planning that facilitates input from a wide range of internal stakeholders is a real strength of the solution.

“In today’s environment, more people are often involved in identifying the key vulnerabilities within their organisations. They help determine the best actions to mitigate risk and help evolve plans to suit. It’s this ‘operational’ approach to continuity planning that offers confidence and visibility for all stakeholders.

“Risk assessment and emergency management go hand-in-hand. We’ve got a proven track record in the emergency management sector serving state, federal and central government agencies here in New Zealand and Australia.

“The risk assessment capabilities offered by Sungard are a natural extension to our emergency management offering, and we’re excited to be adding this world-class range of availability solutions to our portfolio.

“A recent report by researchers Forrester Wave put Sungard Availability Services as one of two providers that ‘lead the pack’ among a dozen vendors offering DRaaS. We’re glad that our clients will be able to benefit from this leading technology.”
