At KingsBridge our primary focus is developing simple and straightforward business continuity software (our flagship tool Shield). However, we also believe strongly that to develop a useful tool, you need to be using it every day, just like our customers do. To make this happen, we also do consulting – writing plans, exercising plans and performing gap analyses on existing plans.
The gap analysis is always an interesting experience because we see how other organizations have structured their business continuity plans. We can receive hundreds of pages of content to perform our analysis. When the documentation arrives, our first thought is often, how do they find anything in here? They must be flipping pages forever to find the content they need when the plan is activated.
Easy plan navigation is critical to writing your business continuity plan. It’s one thing to ensure your plan includes all the critical plan elements and it is kept up to date. It’s quite another to ensure that everyone can find the information that they’re looking for. How do we manage this in Shield? Hyperlinks!
Within Shield you have the options of hyperlinking any word or group of words to another section of content, document, report, or website. The hyperlinks show up in blue making the linked words stand out to the user. As Shield is a hosted solution, linked content is opened in a new tab in your browser making it easy to switch back and forth between the source of the link and the linked content itself.
Our links also work in our Shield mobile app allowing users to have a similar navigation experience whether they’re working from a computer or a mobile device. Our Shield mobile also gives you an offline copy of your plan in the palm of your hand so even if internet is not available, you still have your plan at your fingertips.
