Avalution Announces New Features for Catalyst Business Continuity Software

Cleveland, OH – October 8, 2012

Avalution Consulting – a leading provider of business continuity software – announced today the release of two new features now available in their web-based business continuity software solution, Catalyst.

New features include:

  • Risk Assessment
    Catalyst’s Risk Assessment feature enables users to automatically document and track key availability risks their organization faces, and then develop plans for the highest impact risks. Risks are automatically created when users complete a BIA and identify dependencies for locations, suppliers and applications. Risks can also be added independently.
  • Corrective Actions
    Catalyst’s Corrective Actions feature enables users to document and track lessons learned from exercises, risk treatments for high impact risks, and general activities that need performed to keep the program in compliance and running smoothly. Corrective Actions can be used as a single repository of outstanding tasks related to an organization’s business continuity program.

These new features offer the simple approach Catalyst is known for and automatically prompt users when actions are overdue or risk information needs reviewed.

“The addition of these two features makes business continuity programs built in Catalyst fully compliant with the FFIEC handbook, FINRA, and the new international standard on business continuity, ISO 22301,” explains Robert Giffin, Director of Technology for Avalution. “Achieving and demonstrating compliance has never been easier for organizations with limited business continuity resources in terms of personnel or budget.”

Catalyst combines a simple user interface and on-screen guides with Avalution’s industry-leading methodology to make continuity planning easy and repeatable for every organization, regardless of size. In addition to the new features above, Catalyst offers Policy & Procedure development, Business Impact Analysis, Recovery Strategy Definition, Plan Development (business continuity plan templates – business and IT), Exercising, and General Program Management.
