A leading UK-based general insurance company, which is also part of a global financial services providers' group that has a presence in over 70 countries, wanted to set up its captive offshore development center in India to provide business process outsourcing solutions. However, the company wanted its captive center to run smoothly, without many obstacles and downtime and have a suitable disaster recovery backup in place.
In today's dynamic world, where business is dependent on constant interaction with customers, it is imperative that continuity of business is not hampered due to any hindrances. Understanding the significance of continuous business operations, the company was looking for a bankable company in India that could provide solid backup in terms of business continuity services.
Although the company had arrangements for disaster recovery in the UK, it wanted back up services in India because the resources involved in relocating its employees and processes from India to the UK, during a disaster, would be huge. Thus, it was looking at a more practical solution. Availing disaster recovery services from a local company would enable the company expand its operations in the same city rather than setting up new offices in other cities.
Addressing the business need of disaster recovery services, Flatworld Solutions examined the situation. It had to cater to the requirements of the large global clients of its customer. It was a daunting task to support flawless transition of the massive processes and operations with minimal disruption, on a daily basis, simultaneously maintaining high standards of service.
Flatworld Solutions has set-up business continuity centers at strategic locations in India and abroad through partnerships with other centers. All the offices provide backup courtesy state-of-the-art technological infrastructure, servers, processors, leased lines, storage systems, UPS and generator systems. The business need was answered with the help of the following in-house abilities mentioned below.
