Montréal, May 26th, 2021 - Montréal-based company Premier Continuum, which specializes in organizational resilience (business continuity, IT disaster recovery, crisis management, emergency preparedness and risk management), has won two prestigious awards at the BCI Americas Awards 2021: Provider of the Year and Innovation of the Year.

Premier Continuum also won the Innovation of the year title in 2018 at the BCI Americas Awards.

Provider of the Year

Every year, the BCI Americas Awards recognizes a North American player that stood out as an outstanding provider in the continuity and resilience sector.

The Premier Continuum (PCI) team’s greatest strength is that it understands and supports its clients during every step of their organizational risk management. The company offers three unique and complementary services: in-depth consulting services, certified training and world-class software, ParaSolution.  

Over time, and particularly in 2020, a year overshadowed by the global pandemic, Premier Continuum has become a natural extension of its North American clients’ continuity teams. As a result, PCI has carved out a premier position for itself, as confirmed by the Provider of the Year award won.

“We are truly invested in our clients’ success and are often described as a reliable consulting partner, and these prestigious awards confirm that our approach works,” said Isabelle Primeau, Founder and President of Premier Continuum.

In 2019, the prestigious Gartner® organization named Premier Continuum as a global leader. This recognition, combined with the two awards it won in 2021, cements Premier Continuum as a leader in its field.  

Symbol of technological innovation

Premier Continuum is proud of its Montréal roots, and the award for Innovation of the Year is a testament to its place in this innovative city. By addressing major challenges for system interconnectivity in modern society, Premier Continuum has proven that ParaSolution is agile and more relevant than ever, and that it evolves with the needs of its clients.

“We’re creative and action-oriented. When there are no available solutions, we build them,” added Marie-Hélène Primeau, Executive Vice-President of Premier Continuum.

“While we’re proud of the awards, we’ll continue to innovate and prepare for the next major disruption. Whatever it is, our clients will once again be ready,” concluded Isabelle and Marie-Hélène Primeau.
