The CIR Business Continuity Awards recognise business continuity, security, resilience and risk providers whose innovative strategies and approach to the business make them stand out. Specialist Provider of the Year is an award specifically designed to distinguish bespoke providers of business continuity, resilience, disaster recovery and crisis management solutions.
“We are absolutely delighted to have won such a prestigious accolade. As an organisation, we have achieved a great deal through hard work, evolution and innovation; we are honoured to see that acknowledged by the industry we work in,” said Trevor Wheatley-Perry, Vocal’s Managing Director.
"Throughout our submission, we wanted to evidence the great lengths we have gone to, to engage with public and private sector organisations to create new communications possibilities in business continuity and incident management. This award recognises our contribution and highlights the effectiveness of the collaborative partnerships that have allowed us to gain a unique industry perspective and seen our business continuity and communications solutions to evolve as the global solution of choice.”
Vocal was also shortlisted in the category ‘Most Innovative Solution of the Year’ for COMMAND, an intuitive, self-managed system offering the ability to coordinate processes, operations and schedules while providing flexible reporting, automation and communication tools. Since its launch, interest in COMMAND has been high, thanks to its workflow and auditing functions, and the unique ability to instantly locate and replicate processes and communicate instructions.
In March 2014, Vocal was acquired by Everbridge, the worldwide leader in Unified Critical Communications. Everbridge was shortlisted for four categories in the 2014 Business Continuity Awards, including ‘Best Contribution to Continuity & Resilience’, ‘Most Innovative Product’ and ‘Cloud Services Provider of the Year’.
Vocal is recognised throughout the world as a trusted innovator of multi award-winning and proven business continuity and communication solutions. In 2007, Vocal launched iModus; the first fully integrated business continuity suite encompassing Notification, Planning, Mapping, Alerting, Staff Safety and Incident Management modules. A multi award-winning solution, iModus was selected as the emergency messaging system for incident management during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
On March 12th, 2014, Everbridge, the leader in Unified Critical Communications, acquired Vocal. The strategic acquisition further elevates Everbridge’s status as the world’s largest provider of emergency notification and critical communication solutions. With the addition of Vocal, Everbridge now offers the broadest product family in the industry, delivered through 12 distributed datacentres, and supported by employees in seven offices in North America, Europe, and Asia.
