WAYNE, PA: SunGard Availability Services has signed an agreement with NAV CANADA, Canada’s private sector civil air navigation services provider, to offer SunGard Workforce Continuity Services at the NAV CENTRE conference facility in Cornwall. SunGard provides organizations with temporary employee workspace, equipment, secure access, email, and telephone connectivity in the event of a business interruption or disaster. The NAV CENTRE facility will offer dedicated workstation seats, allowing organizations to customize the site to fit their specific needs, from room layout to technology requirements and will be available to that organization exclusively.

“SunGard’s Workforce Continuity Services are a natural extension of what we provide for organizations at the NAV CENTRE,” said Kim Coe-Turner, general manager of the NAV CENTRE. “Organizations have come to rely on our world-class facility for conference and training events. Now, they can also benefit by using our facility to continue operations through unplanned outages and incidents, adding another layer of convenience for local organizations and agencies.”

The SunGard Workforce Continuity Service offers:

  • Fully outfitted recovery facility, custom equipped with technology, office resources, infrastructure, and the amenities needed to get back on task following a business interruption;
  • Secure, 24/7-access to the facility and the NAV CENTRE campus; and
  • Access to over 500 hotel rooms and amenities including dining, recreation, transportation, conference planning and other guest services.

“Decreased productivity is one of the biggest sources of revenue loss during a business interruption, and the demand for alternative workspaces is growing as organizations are increasingly aware of this,” said Bruno Berti, senior product manager at SunGard Availability Services. “With the opening of an additional SunGard workgroup site at the NAV CENTRE, government agencies and other organizations in the area are well-situated to take advantage of the safety net SunGard Workforce Continuity Services provide.”
