NEARLY 250 motor retailers failed in 2007 and it’s been predicted that 2007 could be even worse.
The aftermath of the 2007 floods, combined with the impact of the credit crunch has hit businesses across the country. But what appears to be the case is that many organisations could be caught out simply by having no business continuity plan to help them manage their operation in difficult times.
New firm Incident Director, is aiming to tackle this issue. Led by two motor industry veterans, Tony Worthy and Steve Kenward, Incident Director will guide business owners towards a best practice business continuity regime, with practical guidance, solutions and support at affordable investment that will enhance business performance.
‘Clearly no-one can stop waters flooding or other acts of nature of the kind we have seen in the last year,’ said director Tony Worthy.
‘But what can be done is to give a business the best possible back up by providing continuity processes and practices that will ensure that, whatever the disaster, the day to day activities of the organisation should be able to get back up and running fairly quickly.
‘And key to the effectiveness of Incident Director is that it will be delivered by proven business experts, supported by an online system that will ensure that practices and processes are put in place following an initial audit.’
‘Having worked in the motor sector for many years, I believe there is a clear role for a cost-effective business continuity solution.
‘Hindsight is a wonderful thing – and with Incident Director, I believe businesses in the motor sector could gain a real level of hindsight.’
