CHARLOTTE, N.C., and MADISON, Wis. (December 13, 2011) – Agility Recovery, a CUNA Strategic Services alliance provider and leading supplier of disaster recovery solutions to businesses in North America, has reached a major milestone – signing its 10,000th member location. The company also announced its 600th credit union member. These landmarks demonstrate the increasing value of business continuity and disaster recovery planning for all organizations – even in this tough economic environment.
Agility helps businesses create continuity plans and physically rescues businesses at the time of disaster with any or all of the four key elements of recovery: power, office space, technology and connectivity. It has a 100% success rate throughout its 23-year history, including dozens of credit unions throughout the country.
In 2005, Agility launched its ReadySuite solution that provides whatever businesses need to recover from any type of disaster. “When we developed ReadySuite, we knew that the packaged recovery solution, consulting services, and testing options would put Agility in a different league within the industry,” said CEO Bob Boyd.
For credit unions, having a continuity plan and disaster recovery strategy is a compliance requirement. To date, Agility protects more than $150 billion in total credit union assets – about 15% of the total assets held by credit unions in America.
David Paulison is the former administrator of Federal Emergency Management Agency and a supporter of Agility’s services. “There is no better way to protect your business, city or community than having rehearsed plans and pre-disaster contracts in place,” he said. “Agility ensures you will have the right resources in place to seamlessly execute your recovery plan in the wake of any disaster scenario.”
