Platform46 offer free trial of Cloud Messaging Service to organize Christmas Parties
SYDNEY - Platform46 today announced a unique free trial for organisations interested in mass communication, in time for Christmas parties. Utilising CloudBCM.com, organisations will be able to upload both staff & customer information, send unlimited emails and both SMS & IVR messaging* to alert invitees of party details, changes & offers.
“Mass communication is crucial for many businesses, especially in the Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery & Crisis Management area.” said Tim Ayling, CEO of Platform46. “However, a system must be tested before such a situation occurs. This is hard to do currently, as there is no cost-effective way to test the reliability of what are mission-critical systems” he added. “Testing mass communication as a vehicle for organising Christmas parties is ideal, as they tend involve all staff, as well as customers. It’s also a fun way of bringing Business Continuity Communications to the attention of the entire staff-base.”
CloudBCM enables all organisations, from small to large, to pay a low-cost for mass-communication, with no user-based pricing, a low annual fee, and cheap communication costs, including free mass emails. Gone are the days where business continuity communication was a solution for only large, cash-rich organisations.
The increasing recognition of the need for business continuity, including increased regulation, is currently only held back by the relatively high-cost of such solutions. As a result, many organisations are left with plans to recover from incidents, but no reactive measures to ensure a rapid response. CloudBCM is designed to fulfill this requirement.
“The Platform46 focus has always been to increase the value of existing investments across the board, and this remains as true today as it has ever been,” said Richard Atkinson, CTO of Platform46. “Existing investments in Business Continuity Plans can be significantly enhanced through better communication.”
