Discover our award-winning BCM software

MONTREAL, Sept. 19, 2019 /CNW/ -- Premier Continuum, an international leader in business continuity offering world-class consulting, certified training and proprietary solution, has been recognized by Gartner for its ParaSolution software.

The easy-to-use cloud-based software provides guidance and flexibility to help organizations from various industries embed best practices into their operations. Its customized automated processes and clever information sharing mechanisms allow organizations to cut down on administrative tasks while ensuring compliance with all BCM requirements across business lines and regions. Over the past 15 years, ParaSolution has been used by large and small organizations operating in the financial and manufacturing sectors as well as government agencies, among others. ParaSolution software addresses the entire BCM lifecycle.

"To us, being recognized as a Leader by Gartner is a testimony to the relevancy and completeness of ParaSolution," stated Isabelle Primeau, Founder and President at Premier Continuum. With its fluid set of seamlessly integrated modules, the solution can support organizations in orchestrating their whole BCMP and IT DR plan, from governance and program management to incident management.

Premier Continuum is a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Continuity Management Solutions, worldwide.

"Organizations that truly want to be resilient wish to efficiently gather critical information from all relevant contributors and engage them in keeping this intel up-to-date, using automation solutions and, more specifically, their workflow functionality," added Isabelle. "Real-time and valid information is expected to be available in the palm of their hand (mobile apps have become a must-have) and displayed in an intuitive and self-explanatory way. Decision-makers and solution implementers want to know what is going on at all times."

"In our view, this recognition by Gartner validates our desire and capability to support customers' most pressing challenges," said Marie-Hélène Primeau, Executive Vice-President of Premier Continuum and BCM Expert. "We're field-oriented and customer-centric, not just techy IT service providers. Our approach in developing and implementing ParaSolution has always been attuned to our clients' realities, and our onboarding process is fluid."

  • For efficiency, information captured in the BIA is automatically populated in other steps of the lifecycle and connected to an integrated database.
  • ParaSolution comes with standardized approaches, based on industry best practices such as ISO 22301 and BCI Good Practices, while allowing configuration by the client and further customization to suit the client's needs.

"As the necessity for greater organizational resilience is becoming increasingly relevant and recognized, we believe this recognition from Gartner validates our strengths," said Marie-Hélène. "We are continuously expanding our reach, improving our products and being solicited to help organizations shift from a traditional to an automated BCM solution. They seek greater efficiency, scalability, flexibility, coherence, mobilization and overall higher resilience. We aim to be the most complete expert-partner to support our clients on their business continuity maturity curve and to help them Grasp, Tailor, Accelerate and Mobilize their BCM automatization journey."
