Business Continuity product award for ICM

Published:  27 May, 2011

The Emergency Office solution has won ‘Most Innovative Product’ at this year’s Business Continuity Awards (UK), ahead of eight other finalists in that category.

Emergency Office is unique in the market as it allows staff to work and make calls from anywhere if their normal office is impacted by disaster, or if travel is impeded by adverse weather or travel chaos. Emergency Office turns any PC, notebook, or iPad into a secure virtualized version of an employee’s corporate desktop. Via a standard home broadband connection it gives them instant remote access to their normal applications and data during a business disruption.

The latest release of Emergency Office also enables staff to automatically re-route phone calls to their own phone, mobile or softphone, and continue to benefit from the same corporate telephony features normally available to them in their office.

Mike Osborne, managing director for Availability Solutions and Development at ICM, said: “ICM has been at the forefront of business continuity services development for twenty five years and our continuous programme of investment has created a world-beating range of solutions. We are extremely proud that our commitment to innovation has yet again been recognised with this important industry award.”

The award is the latest in a string of successes for ICM, which in previous years has picked up the ‘Business Continuity Service Provider of the Year’ prize three times, in 2003, 2007 and 2008.
