DRI International 

DRI International (originally known as Disaster Recovery Institute) is a non-profit organization and a global BCM education and certification body. As such, it sets the standard for professionalism in business continuity planning and has provided the profession’s premier certification and education programs since 1988. There are over 8000 active business continuity professionals from various industries and business sectors maintaining DRI International certifications worldwide. These certifications ensure employers that candidates understand the tenets of business continuity and maintain their level of knowledge through continuing education. DRI International offers education in BCM at major industry events and through the corporate training program. The organization’s International Affiliates insure that BCM best practice is taught and available throughout the world.

As an ANSI (American National Standards Institute) certified standards development organization (SDO) as well as other International Standards Committees, DRI International has an obligation to participate in discussions and the formulation of new standards. We take this role seriously. More importantly, those proposing or revising standards understand that including DRI International is not optional. DRI International is the oldest, the largest, and the most broad-based organization of its kind in the world. For more than 20 years, the organization has certified BCM professionals from more than 95 countries and conducted training in more than 45 of those nations. DRI International currently certifies individuals in a number of languages including English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian, Portuguese and Italian languages with plans to expand into other languages in the coming years.

GRM Solutions is a strategic partner and exclusive distributor of DRI International education and certification in select Eastern European, Middle Eastern and North African markets.

Send Word Now

Send Word Now was founded in 2001, by a group of individuals who recognized the need for quick and effective crisis communications after the tragedies of September 11, 2001. After the attacks on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center and the U.S. Pentagon, cell phone traffic became impossibly congested, and Send Word Now has always placed enormous value on multi-modality and redundant communications in building its platform.

Since 2001, as companies have become more concerned about business and operational continuity, regulatory compliance, security and the ability to audit information flow, the need for swift, appropriate, and documented communications has grown ever more urgent. Send Word Now is successfully transforming the way organizations and government agencies are solving the problem of on-demand alerting and incident response for both emergency situations as well as for everyday, time-sensitive organizational communications.

Today, Send Word Now is the leading provider of on-demand alerting and incident response services for both routine and emergency communication. The easy-to-use, web-based emergency notification service is used by government agencies, municipalities, universities, non-profit organizations and businesses around the world to ensure fast, effective, two-way communication in real-time.

Send Word Now’s simple and innovative solutions have been used to coordinate corporate communications on the fly, mobilize field workforces, and help hospitals prepare for pandemic outbreaks, as well as protect people during electrical storms, tornadoes and hurricanes. Based on industry standards, Send Word Now’s solutions can be easily integrated into existing applications without changing operational processes. Our solutions can be up and running in hours, and our alerts can be sent within a matter of seconds.

And although we pride ourselves immensely on the technological advances we’ve made since 2001, we are most proud of our commitment to customer service. Send Word Now offers the most customer-focused software platform in the industry. We offer a broad range of services that are included in a base subscription, such as liberal and flexibly scheduled training, free webinars and self-training, refresher materials, insight into notification best practices, starter collateral for corporate rollouts, data management advice and support, and a 24×7 dedicated customer support team. Our customers find us responsive, helpful, and supportive, and we have the high renewal rates to prove it. And while our software is robust, easy-to-use, and cost-effective, it’s the service behind these features that truly sets us apart from our competitors.
