In plain language, COOP is planning how to stay in business in the event of disaster. Typical incidents include local events like building fires; regional incidents like mass evacuations, earthquakes, or floods; national incidents like pandemic illnesses; or any event that could cause the potential for loss of business, including any event that the business is dependent on, such as loss of source of supply, loss of critical infrastructure (a major piece of machinery or computing/network resource). TranSystems’ COOP process results in a formal plan available for reference before, during, and after disruptions. Its purpose is to reduce adverse stakeholder impacts determined by both the disruption's scope (who and what it affects to what extent) and duration (e.g., hours, days, months).
Fundamental to the long-term well-being of any company, continuity of operations planning ensures the essential functions of your business can continue during a catastrophic event, whether it be localized acts of nature, accidents, or attack-related. We work with your organization to develop the necessary business continuity plans to ensure seamlessness of service, support for your customers and the maintenance of viability before, during, and after an event. In the end, you will have a plan that will identify potential impacts that threaten an organization and provide a framework for building resilience with the capability for an effective response that safeguards the interests of its key stakeholders, reputation, brand, and value.
