ERV at work: Understand who is at risk when a crisis hits

How would you feel if your organization’s senior executives were traveling to a foreign country for a meeting and there was a large protest in that city?  How would you know where they are and if they were in potential danger?

A multinational computer hardware and services company faced this challenge and improved its response time by implementing the leading enterprise risk visualization platform, Visual Command Center.

The company was taking 3 or more hours to identify at-risk employees and travelers when risk events like this occurred. This left security personnel in the dark for too long and left employees and travelers vulnerable as they waited for instructions or help.

Visual Command Center helped the company reduce that time by alerting security personnel that employees and travelers are at risk even before they enter a dangerous area, giving them valuable time to assess the situation and notify impacted employees with instructions.  The platform provides a real-time, common operating picture of risk in relation to employees, travelers, facilities and other assets that empowers organizations to anticipate and avoid threats. 

When a risk is detected near an asset or employee location, Visual Command Center automatically generates an alert and provides tools to assess whether the risk is a threat and take immediate action to mitigate the impact. Here’s how:

Alert
Visual Command Center automatically alerts you when a risk event has
the potential to impact your travelers and other critical assets.  

Assess
Fly to the event and see at-a-glance the number of buildings, people and other assets impacted. 

Act
With just a couple of clicks, quickly notify travelers and other
contacts about the event, include attachments, protocols, maps
and any other information they may need.

Visual Command Center integrates and visualizes risk data, including natural disasters, weather, terrorism, disease, hazardous materials, and current events. The platform is extensible to integrate data from other sources like social media, travel management, asset tracking, video surveillance, traffic cameras, access control and other devices.

How many man-hours does it take to determine which employees, travelers, facilities, supply routes or other organizational assets are at-risk when a crisis hits? How much does that time cost your organization?
