Contingency Plan Communications

Challenge

  • Any situation that requires a plan also requires a concise, easy-to-follow contingency plan. Ideally, such plans should launch alerts and survey potentially affected individuals through one central dashboard and do so with minimal setup time.

    SimplyCast presents the idea of a Contingency Plan Communications use case, a process which ensures all contingency plans can be created with pre-defined communication templates and steps.

We Can Help

  • Manage any emergency or quick-response scenario using a pre-defined plan
  • Include communications in those emergency plans
  • Ensure all stakeholders are made aware of any emergency as soon as possible

Here's How

By making use of a centralized staff contact database and multi-channel, pre-templated messages, simplified alerts can be sent via email, SMS, or even voice messaging specifically to handle changes to emergency protocols.

  1. Create Plans

    Administrators can template backup plans for any emergency or quick-response scenario. The overall process, communications, and specific requirements can all be included as part of the plan, ensuring all key steps are followed.

  2. Send Alerts

    As part of any contingency plan, alerts can be pre-created and the contacts to whom the alerts need to be sent can be defined. During an active situation, these alerts can be customized further if needed, or sent right away. Additional alerts can also be added, as needed.

  3. Live Surveys

    If additional resources are required, a live survey can be sent to connected institutions or partners inquiring as to their capacity to help.

  4. Central Dashboard

    When a plan is launched, it is turned into an active event dashboard, which includes all aspects of the plan, including its completed and incomplete tasks, responses to live surveys, details of active alerts, and more.
