Today, many partners and clients have a BDR system in place for disaster recovery of servers and critical systems however, almost all clients do not have a full business continuity plan and very few MSPs offer a Business Continuity Planning service that can help coordinate and automate the business operations of the full continuity event. While BDR technology has made significant advancements for MSPs, the Business Continuity Planning and business operations ecosystem is still as it was 20+ years ago.
- Today, PARTNERS CANNOT generate MRR by offering business continuity planning services as the effort is costly, requires extensive experience and is incredibly time consuming for both the MSP and their clients.
- MSPs and clients have to manually create continuity plans; partners and clients must collect word templates from the internet and then create the plans.
- Invoking a continuity event and coordinating a continuity event is completely manual; clients must run through a word document or xls, manually calling staff, partners and the like coordinating the disaster process.
- Finally, updating plans with actions and event details (such as successes and fails) via the post incident review process is also manual. Clients must remember conversations and rely on partner responses to bring together a comprehensive post incident report.
