SunGard Availability Services has launched Recover Anywhere, a service that is designed to help extend desktop recovery, including voice capability, to as high a percentage of the workforce as an organisation might require in the event of a business disruption.
The company said Recover Anywhere empowers any authorised employee to participate in everyday work following a disruption as long as they have access to a PC with an Internet connection, and a telephone.
The service provides worker with a URL and password to gain access to the recovered company network, hosted from within SunGard’s resilient recovery estate.
Recover Anywhere integrates both physical and virtual workplace environments and allows a core team of staff to operate from a traditional recovery centre, while the remaining business workers operate via access to an organisation’s existing IT and telephony.
In the case of an extended business disruption, lasting weeks or more, Recover Anywhere helps staff to work from an alternate location for long periods of time, the firm said.
SunGard Availability Services managing director UK and executive vice-president Europe Keith Tilley said with Recover Anywhere, the number of staff recovered can be quickly and cost-effectively extended to other roles with the potential to help an organisation double the productive workforce.
