Avalution Releases Emergency Notification Surveys and Expanded Customization Features for Catalyst Business Continuity Software

Cleveland, OH – April 16, 2015

Avalution Consulting – the leading provider of business continuity consulting and software solutions – announced today the release of two new features for the Catalyst business continuity software suite – Bullhorn emergency notification surveys and the ability to further customize Catalyst by adding new fields.

Bullhorn Emergency Notification – Surveys

Bullhorn emergency notification enables users to quickly and easily connect when it counts by sending emergency notifications to internal contacts via email, text message, or voice phone call – all from just one screen. The new survey feature empowers users to take polls and get answers to urgent questions, fast!

  • Conduct a survey via phone, text message, and/or email
  • Survey individual contacts, groups of contacts, or teams from recovery plans
  • Track survey responses, view summarized results, and take action

Bullhorn is built-in to Catalyst, so no third party contracts are required, and always includes unlimited messages and surveys during a declared incident, making costs predictable.

Customization – Add Your Own Fields

Catalyst enables users to customize the user experience, including customizing labels, modifying the help text provided in the on-screen guides, and reordering and hiding fields. With this release, users can now add fields throughout the tool.

  • Add a field to any section of the tool, at any time
  • Specify the field name, select the data entry type, and populate the help text – all on one screen
  • Save and automatically update all items in the selected category with the new field, regardless of when it was created
  • Utilize the Bulk Import/Export capability for all custom fields
