Sun Life Insurance Uses Advantage to Manage Risk

Oakville, ON – March 6, 2013 | Crisis management system from ERMS Corporation offers added protection in an emergency. For over 100 years, Sun Life has been in the business of helping clients plan for the unexpected through their wide range of insurance product and service offerings. Now, they are taking risk management to the next level with a comprehensive, enterprise-class emergency notification system from ERMS Corporation. By implementing ERMS’ Advantage solution, Sun Life can help protect both their people and business in the event of an emergency.

Sun Life’s Business Continuity department was aware of their exposure to risk without an emergency mass notification system in place to deal with critical and emergency situations. They were looking for technology that could quickly and easily notify key staff and stakeholders via multiple channels—and the option of two-way communication. With an eye to proactively ensuring operational continuity, they also wanted access to important information during a crisis, regardless of type or severity. Advantage’s functionality fit both these criteria.

The fact that ERMS is a local, Canadian company was another factor in the vendor selection process. As well, an intensive security analysis made Sun Life comfortable having private data hosted with ERMS.

“We are proud to offer Sun Life the two-way emergency communication they need, whether they communicate via phone, email or SMS,” says Sylvain Rollin, President and CEO of ERMS. “Our enterprise-class solution gives Sun Life the flexibility they need to manage local offices now, and the comprehensiveness they need to expand support to their global operations as the need arises.”
