xMatters and Fusion Risk Management Announce Integration of Risk Management and Crisis Response for the Enterprise and Supply Chain

Integrated Cloud-Based Solution Delivers Comprehensive Resilience and Response Capability to Ensure Employee Safety, Protection of Assets and Continuous Operations

SAN RAMON, CA and ROLLING MEADOWS, IL--(Marketwire - Sep 5, 2012) - xMatters, inc., the relevance engine company and Fusion Risk Management, Inc., provider of the innovative Fusion Framework® Risk Management & Contingency Planning System™ announced integration of their flagship solutions which will be demonstrated at the upcoming Disaster Recovery Journal Fall World 2012 conference in San Diego, CA from September 9 through September 11.

The integration between xMatters and the Fusion Framework System™ streamlines the end-to-end Continuity Risk Management process. Enterprise organizations can now manage their people records as "Teams" and "Rosters" within the context of contingency plans in the Fusion Framework System, and synchronize these with the xMatters system. While reducing costs and work effort, this capability speeds response times and removes the potential for errors and delays resulting from out of date or incorrect contact information.

"Problem solved! Our clients have long expressed frustration with the difficulty and duplication of effort to manage names and contact information listed in their numerous contingency plans, while simultaneously keeping this information synchronized and up to date in their alert and notification systems," said David Nolan, CEO, Fusion Risk Management. "This integration delivers a seamless solution across the two systems making it easier and faster to alert the right people during a crisis event when time is of the essence."

"In a crisis, every second counts -- the complexity of today's enterprise environments challenge even the most experienced professionals to quickly understand a crisis situation, invoke the right contingency plans, and efficiently activate the right teams of people to respond as quickly as possible," said Troy McAlpin, CEO, xMatters. "Now, with Fusion and xMatters, our customers gain a world-class solution to address their most critical challenges."

Fusion Risk Management and xMatters bring together business continuity, crisis management and disaster recovery with rapid mobilization of flexible incident-specific response teams under the organizing umbrella of governance, risk and compliance program management. Their integrated joint offering enables all types of organizations to better manage risks and ensure more positive outcomes, while saving significant costs, accelerating executive decision-making, and reducing the overall work effort to protect the enterprise.

Product releases are available now. Integrations are configured to meet specific customer requirements. For more information please contact Fusion Risk Management at info@fusionrm.com.
