Agility ensures you will have the right resources in place to seamlessly execute your recovery plan in the wake of any disaster scenario.

Agility Recovery (http://www.agilityrecovery.com), a leading provider of disaster recovery solutions to businesses in North America, has reached a major milestone – signing its 10,000th Member location. This landmark is unprecedented in the disaster recovery industry, and demonstrates 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 time-of-disaster with any or all of the four key elements of recovery: power, office space, technology and connectivity. They have a 100% success rate throughout their 23 year history.

Reinventing the Industry

Agility was founded in 1989 as a former division of GE. After 15 years in the business, the company saw a need to alter the industry’s business model. The industry historically focused exclusively on Fortune 5000 businesses – the companies with the resources to dedicate towards building a costly, complex business continuity plan. Agility asked, “What about the other six million small businesses? Shouldn’t they have access to the same business continuity assets as the big guys?”

With that vision in mind, Agility developed a turnkey recovery solution called ReadySuite. Agility’s ReadySuite solution was the answer to small business’ question, “How will I respond if a disaster strikes?” It addresses the typical high-cost, high-frustration associated with business continuity planning, and replaces it with a small monthly membership fee and a straight forward approach. Agility does not profit at time of disaster. They simply deliver what the business needs to recover (i.e. generator, phone redirection, mobile office space – anything) and pass along only out of pocket costs. Agility’s vendor partnerships and $35 million of their own technology assets provide the ability to deliver these items cheaper and faster than any organization could do on their own.

Chief David Paulison is the former Administrator of FEMA 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,” he continued.

Company’s Growth Coming to Fruition

In 2004, before launching its ReadySuite solution, the company had 500 members. In 2011, Agility signed its 10,000th location, increasing its Membership by 50 times over the last 7 years. In these hard economic times, many small businesses do not budget for business continuity services, but Agility’s inexpensive and effective solution has made it an easy decision to incorporate this service into their plan.

“In 2005 Agility saw the need to deliver innovative business continuity solutions that challenged the barriers of scale, cost and complexity,” said Bob Boyd, CEO of Agility Recovery. “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. We are thrilled that our vision for all small businesses to have a disaster recovery plan is coming to fruition. Our promise to help businesses survive is unwavering, and we don’t see our growth slowing down anytime soon,” he continued.
