Built on the core Noggin 2.0 platform, the Noggin Continuity solution pack provides organizations the tools needed to effectively assess business risks and impact, coordinate responses to disruptions, and manage incidents, no matter how big or small.
Noggin Continuity comes with a library of over 25 modules providing over 200 best-practice templates, forms, dashboards, reports and more. This includes 70+ plans, including templates for managing disruption to critical business function areas, covering loss of essential personnel, facilities or assets, communications or information systems, data, production capabilities, supply chain or IT connectivity, and more - all highly relevant in this age of COVID-19.
Business continuity software for better continuity of operations, Noggin Continuity takes a practical approach to business continuity management.
The end-to-end solution enables the analysis of business activities and functions through the BIA to understand the overall impact of potential disruptions. Then, by tracking scheduled disruption exercises for critical activities, you can conduct procedural reviews to ensure optimal functionality of recovery strategies and coverage of critical activities. All of this while monitoring incidents that effect those critical business activities to ensure an expedient return to normal processes.
