Catalyst Software Named “Business Continuity Innovation of the Year”

Cleveland, OH – October 10, 2012

Avalution Consulting – a leader in business continuity and IT disaster recovery consulting, outsourcing and software solutions – is honored to announce that Catalyst business continuity software was named Business Continuity Innovation of the Year at the first annual BCI Middle East Awards.

Robert Giffin, Director of Technology for Avalution, stated, “We would like to thank the Business Continuity Institute (BCI) and Bank Muscat for sponsoring the Middle East Awards. We are truly honored and appreciate this recognition.”

Catalyst is a world-wide success because it provides the power of enterprise software with simple functionality that anyone can use to drive preparedness. Catalyst is particularly popular with “part-time” business continuity planners that have not been formally trained prior to being assigned ownership of the program. Catalyst aids users in quickly figuring out what needs protected in their organization and then writing a plan for it – enabling organizations to accomplish their continuity goals in a time and cost-effective manner. Despite its simplicity, Catalyst is fully compatible with continuity related standards, including ISO 22301.

Catalyst also provides a wide range of business continuity plan templates to suite different styles and planning needs.

According to a press release issued by the BCI, the way Catalyst captures and utilizes essential business continuity management tools and templates and presents them to the planner via an easy-to-use interface and on-screen guides to make continuity planning easy, were contributing factors that led Catalyst to being awarded Business Continuity Innovation of the Year.

The first annual BCI Middle East Awards were presented Tuesday, October 9th during a special awards dinner at Le Royal Meridien in Abu Dhabi in conjunction with the Middle East BCM Summit. The awards recognized excellence in ten categories, and winners were chosen by a panel of BCI-appointed judges.
