Crisis Management: MissionMode Solutions and CPO Cup of Tea


It is one thing to survive a crisis, but it is another to manage one. In the event that a crisis happens, response to such becomes critical and plans beforehand should be up-to-date and readily available. This is where MissionMode Solutions and Contingency Planning & Outsourcing (CPO) come into the picture. Crisis management is their cup of tea.

MissionMode Solutions, provider of online crisis management and emergency notification software, partners with CPO, creator of the CPOtracker business continuity planning software, to integrate their software products giving organizations a comprehensive solution for preparedness and crisis response.

“We are excited about our partnership with CPO. The cultures of our organizations are strongly focused on customer service and delivery of effective, easy to use products,” says Robert Edson, vice-president of sales at MissionMode Solutions. “When companies share the same vision for client success, the partnership just works.”

This is how it works. When an organization uses CPOtracker, the CPOtracker develops and maintains crisis management plans. When those plans are put into action, MissionMode notifies the right people and provides an online command center for a collaborated team response. The integration between these tools reduces the time and cost of resolving crises, and protects the accuracy of critical data.

“CPO and MissionMode solutions have been proven effective during numerous crises,” says Tim Lord, CEO of Contingency Planning & Outsourcing. “Companies will benefit by the creation of one seamless solution that improves preparedness, crisis response, and recovery efforts.”

Private and public sector organizations around the world use CPOtracker and MissionMode systems for responding to incidents that range from common operational disruptions to major disasters. The products are used by professionals in a wide variety of roles, including disaster recovery, business continuity, COOP and emergency management.

A CPO representative will be available at MissionMode’s booth #90 at the Fall World Conference in San Diego, CA on September 11-13, 2011. This conference is the world’s largest event for business continuity and disaster recovery professionals.
