Agility and Florida Business Continuity Center Partner to Offer Comprehensive Recovery SolutionWednesday, October 27 2010

Winter Haven, FL – The Florida Business Continuity Center and Agility Recovery Solutions, North America’s premier business continuity and disaster recovery company, have announced a partnership to deliver a turnkey, comprehensive business continuity solution to customers across North America.

The Florida Business Continuity Center (FBCC, www.fbccdr.com) was established to meet the disaster recovery and business continuity needs of organizations throughout Florida. Located in Winter Haven, Florida, within the Inland Fiber & Data Technology Park, FBCC provides full service alternate workforce recovery services as well as related disaster recovery and data center services for businesses and government entities located throughout Florida seeking a secure inland location for temporary staff relocation in ensuring continuity of business operations.

“Our partnership with Agility benefits FBCC’s users by providing additional workspace seats as needed,” commented Carl J. Strang III, President of FBCC owner, 6/10 Corporation. “Our technology park’s configuration allows for convenient location of Agility’s ReadySuite mobile units contiguously with FBCC.”

Agility Recovery Solutions, headquartered in Charlotte, NC, specializes in providing comprehensive, turnkey business continuity solutions to small and midsized businesses across North America. To handle the traditional disaster recovery industry roadblocks of scale, cost and complexity, Agility developed ReadySuite, a solution delivering the critical assets necessary for businesses to remain operational during disasters or interruptions. In the past two years, Agility has responded to over 560 disaster events and performed over 700 test simulations.

“Small and mid-size businesses are the backbone of the country’s economy. Local communities rely upon these businesses to provide goods, services, and income to their residents,” said Bob Boyd, president and CEO of Agility Recovery Solutions. “However, without access to the proper planning tools, these businesses are helpless against unforeseen events and circumstances. Agility provides these business owners with the tools necessary to develop effective business continuity plans.”

According to a recent study commissioned by Agility Recovery Solutions, an overwhelming 90 percent of small to mid-size businesses are woefully unprepared for a business interruption or disaster. More often than not these ‘disasters’ are everyday events that can have crippling effects on a business: a broken water pipe, a building fire, a power surge, or power outage – not necessarily the natural disasters and regional events dominating the headlines.
