Hi Tim,

We greatly appreciate you taking the time to review our software. Your opinion is extremely important to us and we rely on client feedback in order to continuously make improvements.
We were so excited to be able to take you through to ISO 22301 compliance, particularly as you are the first private customer bank/second bank in Germany to have achieved this accreditation.
We are thankful for your constructive criticism around the reporting modules. This is something we have taken on board and are actively working on to implement improvements.

Kind regards,

C2 implementation and use

2018-11-23

For a global organisation, delivering a consistent methodology and approach with uniformed Plan delivery demonstrates to our external interested parties that we have a Global BCMS, not a desperate system based on out of date analysis and documentation.

Pros

One of the things I like about this application is the simplistic dashboard. The front end appears from sign-on and this can be tailored to suit user needs, so they only see what they need to see.

Cons

This function is great if you have an organisation that does the same activity multiple times over multiple locations.

Business Continuity Management software

2018-11-30

The structured way in which the BIA is presented to the end user from understanding the business activity to identifying its resource requirements and then to considering the recovery strategy makes it easy for non-BC personnel to understand.

Pros

The structured way in which BCP's are created; taking the data captured through the BIA's and presenting it into the BC plans via the dynamic template eliminating the need for copy and paste.

Cons

The organisational structure offers some challenges to a large scale implementation and causes some difficulties in representing changes to the organisational structure of the company itself. The dynamic templates can take some getting right with the formatting, but once in place they do the job.

C2 BCMS Review

2019-02-20

The benefits being realised are mass cascade very quickly, automated reporting through upfront testing criteria and the ability to auto send plan review/signoff emails.

Pros

The software is easy to use and has built in help if you are not clear on what is required in any particular field It provides many different layers of reporting should you require in depth reporting and governance capability People signing off the plans do not need to have direct system access, cutting down the number of potential user accounts you need to create and administer

Cons

Current limited capability on the 'Invoke' button of the BCP The call tree cascades show the message coming from a UK mobile when sending outside of the UK, this means there is a potential for people to see it as 'spam' and not read the message (this is being extremely picky) None of the above are major issues and would not stop me from recommending the software

We are really pleased to hear that you have found the software easy to use, found the inbuilt support helpful and have made good use of the reporting and governance alignment capabilities.

With regard to the challenges you have outlined ¿ we can confirm that we are working on the updating feature for release in the immediate future, and we certainly take the additional comments on board with regard to the Invoke button and call tree ¿ this is something we will discuss internally to improve.

From an overall sense we are delighted to have you on board and that your experience with the software is a positive one!

Benefits of a C2 BCMS

2019-04-11

With multiple (50+) plans across the business, the management, review and updates have always been problematic with business areas wanting to put there own emphasis on specific elements.

Pros

Solution is very good at capturing all the business requirements and impacts then pulling them through to both the individual business area and location BCP's. Ability to tailor the BIA/BCP template requirements to meet the business needs. Having introduced the BCMS to the business functions, they embraced the solution after the initial concerns around navigation.

Cons

The email review notifications are pretty simple and we have struggled to get company branding added, this has resulted in mails being deleted as the plain text looks like spam.

Business Continuity

2018-12-14

The c2 tool we have been using at IATA has been great so far.

Pros

There are many pros to the use of C2 for IATA for our business continuity. The layout is quite good, and one is able to understand the various logo once using it. The actual functionalities are amazing, the ability to call the customers and clients and team members. And the ability to have users involved that are not part of the system. What is also amazing is the support team and the quick response times.

Cons

Some fields are editable by many parties, hence data duplication or mistakes can occur easily.

Overall a great tool to use for Business Continuity and the support from C2 has been amazing.

2019-07-10

The team have been amazing! I have contacted them a lot (mostly with 'user error' type questions) and they have always responded almost immediately and helped with any questions or issues. They always provide the best advice and have made my work a lot smoother and more enjoyable.

Pros

It allows for communication directly from the tool which others don't provide.

Cons

It's not obvious how someone would access their Work Instruction.

Hi Sarim,

We greatly appreciate you taking the time to review our software. Your opinion is extremely important to us and we rely on client feedback in order to continuously make improvements.

It is great to hear that you have had a good experience with our fantastic support team. While the dynamic template functionality offers big wins for users e.g. automatically pulling BIA data in to plans in line with the organisation's requirements, we realise that there are limitations in respect of the template editor's usability (sometimes requiring a level of familiarity on the users part). We are actively working on enhancing this aspect of our BCMS2 software to improve the user experience. Please note that the C2 Service Desk are always available to help with any issues.

Many thanks

The range of functions although really helpful can be perceived as daunting for staff with limited use/access however owing to support provided through training and awareness by the provider this particular issue has on the whole been resolved
