Training the Human Element for better Disaster Response

Great article about a very important factor in disaster response that is often overlooked: the Human Element.

Bruce Gilkes, Principle Consultant at C4i Consultants, pened a great article on the topic here. He writes: "Over the past few months I have been examining different disasters and have been trying to figure out common themes and issues. And then it dawned on me - that the one common factor was the "Human Element". Not only that, but the human element has the potential to be one of the largest factors and most variable factors during a crisis, emergency or disaster".

If that is in fact the case, and I fully believe that it is, when and where should we identify the skillset required by people to better respond to a disaster? In your disaster recovery and business continuity plan while you are creating it. This approach will allow you to identify the "Human Element" and the risks associated with it so that you can better prepare people for their roles and responsbilities.  

PlanBcp for Office 365 / SharePoint Online helps you do that.

What does our APP cost?

That is a great question and we want to ensure our solution pricing options are very clear to our customers.

A single user is $99.00 per month which gives this user access to all of the PlanBcp solution features and functions. There are no restrictions for a single user. You get everything.

Our pricing model through the Microsoft Office Store is as follows:

- First user is $99.00 per month

- Each new user after that up to 10 total users is $99.00 per month for a total per organization of $990.00 per month.

- After that, well Bob's our Uncle! And you can thank Uncle Bob because PlanBcp is FREE after that for the 11th plus user within your organization. That's right. You read it right. Within a single organization you can give 100 Team Members access to PlanBcp for $1,000 per month. That's an average cost of $10 per Team Member per month. That would be a very big DRP/BCP Team but in very large organizations that is not unreasonable to find. You need more Team Members than 100 to have access to PlanBcp within your Fortune 100 company! No problem. It's still FREE. It you have 1,000 DRP/BCP Team Members the cost is now $1.00 (one dollar) per team member per month! No additional charges apply!

Every Customer gets unlimited support starting at the entry level single user purchase.

Customers with 10 users or more also receive one hour of FREE DRP/BCP project planning initiation consulting services.

We believe every organization should have a Plan B to recover from a disaster so that they can continue business and serve their customers. We are here to assist you with that important goal. We look forward to working with you to achieve that objective.

 The real question is however:

 How much money can the PlanBcp APP safe you in the event your organization suffers a disaster?
