SunGard Availability Services has announced that it has signed an agreement with NAV CANADA, Canada’s private sector civil air navigation services provider, to offer SunGard Workforce Continuity Services at the NAV CENTRE conference facility, located in Cornwall, Ontario. An industry leader in workforce recovery, SunGard provides organizations with temporary employee workspace, equipment, secure access, email, and telephone connectivity in the event of a business interruption or disaster.
The strategic partnership will allow SunGard to expand its footprint in Canada and provide high- quality Workforce Continuity Services to Canadian businesses and government agencies. The NAV CENTRE facility will offer dedicated workstation seats, allowing organizations to customize the workgroup site to fit their specific needs, from room layout to technology requirements, and will be available to that organization exclusively.
The SunGard Workforce Continuity Service offers
- Fully outfitted recovery facility, custom equipped with technology, office resources, infrastructure, and the amenities needed to get back on task following a business interruption
- Secure, 7x24 access to the workgroup facility and the entire NAV CENTRE campus
- Access to over 500 hotel rooms and NAV CENTRE amenities including dining, recreation, transportation, conference planning and other guest services
“Decreased productivity is one of the biggest sources of revenue loss during a business interruption, and the demand for alternative workspaces is growing as organizations are increasingly aware of this,” said Bruno Berti, senior product manager at SunGard Availability Services. With the opening of an additional SunGard workgroup site at the NAV CENTRE, government agencies and other organizations in the area are well-situated to take advantage of the safety net SunGard Workforce Continuity Services provide.”
“SunGard’s Workforce Continuity Services are a natural extension of what we provide for organizations at the NAV CENTRE,” said Kim Coe-Turner, general manager of the NAV CENTRE.” Organizations have come to rely on our world-class facility for conference and training events. Now, they can also benefit by using our facility to continue operations through unplanned outages and incidents, adding another layer of convenience for local organizations and agencies.”
