ContinuitySA launches business continuity and resilience services Partner Programme

Africa-based ContinuitySA has officially launched a formal Partner Programme. The programme aims to encourage consultants and mid-sized IT companies to partner with ContinuitySA in offering their clients a customised business continuity solution.

“Partnering with ContinuitySA means that service providers can offer their clients an end-to-end solution that includes disaster recovery and business continuity," says Bonita Steenkamp, who has joined the company as Partner Manager.

With facilities in Johannesburg (Midrand and Randburg), Cape Town and Durban, as well as in Botswana, Mozambique, Mauritius and Kenya, ContinuitySA offers a large footprint. Its South African facilities offers in excess of 3,000 work-area recovery seats, providing clients with alternative, fully equipped and operational office space should their own sites be out of commission for any reason.

ContinuitySA draws on 30 years of experience to offer a full range of best-practice services, from advisory through to disaster and work-area recovery, as well as management of the full business continuity life cycle. Steenkamp stresses that the partner retains full control of the client relationship.

"Partnering with ContinuitySA means that service providers can offer a highly specialised value-add that is tailored to their clients' requirements, with an attractive incentive scheme. It opens a new opportunity for our partners to sell on a new set of services to existing and new clients," she says. "We believe that this represents a huge opportunity for service providers to enhance their service offering, and thus obtain a competitive advantage in a tough market."
