Assurance Software announces strategic acquisition of Avalution Consulting
01 May 2020
ASSURANCE SOFTWARE, the provider of business continuity management software and services, has announced the acquisition of Avalution Consulting, the provider of business continuity solutions. The announcement follows the 2019 mergers between Assurance and BCI partner ClearView Continuity, as well as Avalution and BC Management.
This acquisition provides customers and the business continuity management community with direct access to an “unrivalled” level of business continuity management expertise spanning consulting, software, staffing and data research. Serving more than 850 customers in 30 countries, this newly-combined organisation provides business continuity professionals with “the optimal partner” for addressing all organisational resiliency needs.
“A business continuity capability is critical for any organisation as it ensures an ability to maintain operations during disasters like COVID-19,” explained Jon Ezrine, CEO of Assurance Software. “Our vision is to help businesses be prepared. Our combined experience will enable us to deliver the best consulting and software solutions, in turn helping organisations successfully respond to and recover from any disruptions.”
Avalution was co-founded by Brian Zawada and Robert Giffin back in 2005. The company created the Business Continuity Operating System, a methodology proven to drive greater business continuity management success and engagement, as well as the Catalyst business continuity software solution.
“By joining Assurance, we’ve created a global partnership with the reach and talent to shape the future of our industry and address the most complex challenges facing organisations today,” commented Zawada, managing director of Avalution. “Our visions for the industry align and we share the same values, which includes obsessing about putting the customer first as we plan for the future. Our team is ready to provide organisations with greater access to the solutions that address their most pressing preparedness challenges.”
