BBR Staff Writer Published 30 September 2009

Offers on site technical assistance with the restoration of business data and management of both telecommunications and internet network access

Sister companies within THB Group, East Grinstead-based Cardinus Risk Management and Peterborough-based THB Risk Solutions, have signed an agreement with Berkshire-based Global Continuity to launch a business continuity solution, BusinessAssist, to the UK regional broker market.

Reportedly, BusinessAssist provides clients with: convenient temporary office accommodation, a comprehensive IT infrastructure, on site technical assistance with the restoration of business data and management of both telecommunications and internet network access.

Glen McCully, MD of THB Risk Solutions, said: “BusinessAssist is the first business continuity solution designed for the SME market that delivers a low cost, efficient and pragmatic approach. Most SME’s cannot afford expensive consultants to plan and test solutions so it is not surprising that 80% of all SMEs fail within 18 months of a major loss. BusinessAssist is different in that it provides a practical solution to loss recovery at a low cost. Together with Cardinus’ wider risk management solutions we believe that we can offer brokers and their clients with practical and competitively priced solutions.”

Richard Pursey, MD of Global Continuity’s, said: “BusinessAssist delivers a very tangible value added service to customers, at price points that finally make real disaster recovery solutions affordable to small and medium sized businesses. BusinessAssist provides key next business day services required to get the core administrative functions back up and running as quickly and efficiently as possible.”

THB Group is a UK-based independent insurance and reinsurance broker. It offers insurance and reinsurance broking, risk management and underwriting services to wholesale and retail clients.
