Avalution Consulting Announces Free and Pro Versions of Catalyst Business Continuity Software

Cleveland, OH – March 17, 2013

Avalution Consulting – a leading provider of business continuity consulting and software solutions – announced today the release of a Free and Pro edition of Catalyst business continuity software.

Catalyst is web-based business continuity software that combines a simple user interface and on-screen guides with Avalution’s consulting methodology to make continuity planning easy and repeatable for every organization.

Features that span all versions of Catalyst include Policy and Procedure Development, Business Impact Analysis, Recovery Strategy Definition, Plan Development (Business and IT), Exercising, and General Program Management. These features enable users to quickly build comprehensive business continuity and IT disaster recovery programs, with no monthly fee.

“This is an exciting day! We are thrilled to be offering the most innovative business continuity software package available, for free! The free version of Catalyst includes 10 departments and 5 users, so for thousands of small and medium businesses, compelling business continuity software is finally within reach,” explains Robert Giffin, Director of Technology at Avalution. “Even better, Catalyst Pro provides functionality similar to other software packages currently on the market that cost thousands of dollars a month, but provides the freedom to pay monthly and starts at a base price of just $100 per month.”

Catalyst Pro enables organizations to customize the entire user experience, including:

  • Customizing labels throughout the tool to align the software to the terminology used in their continuity program;
  • Modifying the text provided in the on-screen guides, which describe what information is being requested in each field; and
  • Reordering and hiding fields to align the software to the format of their continuity program.

Explore the Pro version of Catalyst for 30 days, without entering payment information. To continue with Catalyst Pro when the trial period is over, simply enter payment information. If payment information isn’t provided, the account will automatically transition to a basic Catalyst account.
