Fort Worth, TX, February 11, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Information Technology Disaster Resource Center (ITDRC) is pleased to announce its collaboration with Agility Recovery. The non-profit public charity will endorse Agility’s robust business continuity services to small businesses and their communities. Agility Recovery’s services will expand upon the Resource Center’s voice and data systems recovery offerings, and include the ability to provide any or all of the four key elements of a recovery in the midst of any disaster: space, power, connectivity and technology. Agility also has a strong ongoing educational program for its Members, as well as extensive planning and preparedness tools.
"We're extremely excited to partner with the Agility Recovery Team," says Joe Hillis, Operations Director of ITDRC. "They have clearly demonstrated their commitment to the small business community, and shown a genuine interest in supporting our mission." Hillis continues, "We're looking forward to leveraging Agility's resources and expertise to help us fill some gaps in our continuity education and planning offering, as well as our disaster response program."
Agility’s recovery services are not limited to natural disasters, but include any type of business interruption from loss of power, fire, etc. As part of the new collaboration, ITDRC will not only provide IT continuity and recovery assistance, but will also endorse Agility’s services to businesses to provide further guidance in disaster planning, helping them to fully recover from a catastrophe.
Agility has 22 years of experience rescuing organizations of all types and proudly points to a 100 percent success rate.
“We are so proud to partner with the Information Technology Disaster Resource Center. They are an outstanding non-profit organization with a mission statement that fits well with Agility’s,” says Bob Boyd, CEO of Agility Recovery. “ITDRC believes in the importance of ongoing education and planning, as well as extensive disaster response. Combining ITDRC’s IT offerings with Agility’s robust recovery packages will ensure that every small business and community has a continuity plan. With Agility, businesses will have access to more than $35 million in assets including generators, servers, PCs and mobile office space, our online planning tool and our dedicated customer service team,” he continued.
The Agility endorsement fits well with ITDRC’s goal of providing extensive guidance in disaster planning in 2012. The importance of being prepared cannot be understated, and the ability to successfully recover from disaster is largely dependent on the amount of preparation done before a disaster strikes. Agility and ITDRC plan to promote ongoing planning and education through cooperative webinars, tips and checklists, e-alerts and other combined marketing efforts.
