We are an established provider of business continuity consulting and software services, supplying to major insurers and their clients, and directly to organisations of all sectors and sizes. We use our software to accelerate and simplify the production of business continuity and IT disaster recovery plans, reducing time taken, cost and ease of maintenance.
Inoni Essentials is a consulting service that elevates you to a best practice position quickly, affordably and with minimum disruption. Our launch pad is a series of practical but intensive workshops, teaching you all you need to know whilst learning what makes your organisation tick. Using the data we collect, we’ll create your baseline business continuity capability, walk you through it and then support your journey to resilience. Our programme can help you:

“We were aware for some time that business continuity planning was important in order to protect the business and its customers against unforeseen events. Although we had some limited plans in place, we needed to develop these plans and get more of our management team actively involved in the process.
We have made good progress in this area and have achieved significantly more than we could have done without the consultants’ help. We are now able to demonstrate to our customers, insurers and other stakeholders that we have robust plans in place.
We are very satisfied with the work carried out by Inoni and intend to involve them in the future as we continue to develop and improve our planning.”
“We needed to review and then update our plans, which was daunting, but with the help of the Inoni, we achieved our goals and now have a fit for purpose document with all key stakeholders involved and satisfied with the result. The business is now able to move forward in the knowledge that plans are in place which can be shared with customers, suppliers and insurers to provide comfort, professionalism and assurance in the years ahead.
We found the whole process painless, which was mainly down to the skills and talent of the Inoni Consultants involved who did a wonderful job for us and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them and this solution to any other business in the future.”
“Our experience of working with Inoni was extremely beneficial, positive and straightforward. Having a team of very experienced and competent consultants assessing the company and its ongoing business continuity requirements has meant the process was a very valuable exercises, and not just a tick-in-the-box.
The flexibility of the Inoni software has meant that it is very simple to keep the relevant details of the Plan up to date. The follow-up support from the Inoni team has also been second to none. Availability via phone and email is always there to provide support.
The Inoni Essentials solution has meant that we have been able to put in place a highly efficient Business Continuity Management System in very good time, satisfying all our stakeholders.“
