ERMS and Readysmith Team Up to Deliver Business Continuity and Call Tree replacement to SMB's

Oakville, ON, December 16, 2009 - ERMS Corporation, a leading provider of emergency notification solutions has engaged in a partnership with Readysmith Advisers Limited, providers of wiki-based web-hosted business continuity planning services. Readysmith services are specifically designed to meet the needs of small and medium sized businesses, guiding SMB companies through planning and recovery from sudden business interruptions such as fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, power failures, bomb threats, supplier failures, pandemics... any bad thing that threatens the survival of the business.

Each Readysmith customer is assigned an experienced "Adviser" to support the Ready Plan development.  Readysmith Advisers are available by e-mail, Skype, web meeting, or phone and guide customers through learning modules and development of the Ready Plan. "Our Advisers put years of experience in emergency, crisis and disaster planning to work so you can customize our comprehensive Internet based Ready Plan such as emergency procedures, crisis management procedures, business continuity procedures, IT recovery procedures, and all the data needed to execute your Ready Plan," said Michael Smith, President of Readysmith.

Once the Ready Plan is finished, Advisers lead customers through a scenario based exercise, designed to train staff in the execution of the Ready Plan and to validate its completeness. "ERMS emergency notification services are a great complement to the Readysmith planning tools; if you must really use your Ready Plan to respond to an emergency situation, the ERMS Advantage notification service enables us to get the right communications out to the right people quickly and efficiently.  We know your Ready Plan and we can help you respond," said Smith.
