The Association for PRINT Technologies (APTech) has released a free online Disaster Recovery Toolkit to help businesses manage the unprecedented COVID-19 disruption. The toolkit provides tips and best practices along with a downloadable disaster recovery plan that can be adapted for businesses that want to develop a plan for future forward planning. 

The four-part series is designed to assist businesses impacted directly and indirectly by disaster, especially when a plan is not yet in place. Users will learn how to create a disaster response and recovery plan, how to effectively communicate to staff and customers during a crisis, and how to do the tough work during rough times, like spring cleaning your customer base, policies, procedures and staffing. 

The Disaster Recovery Toolkit also offers a customizable plan to help businesses take a thoughtful approach to the many important components of recovery following a disaster without wasting time, resources or drifting from the main objective of ensuring continued business success. 

“There are many question marks along the road ahead.  The suggestions in this guide are intended to help companies identify the unknowns by giving them a competitive advantage and a solid start to disaster preparedness,” said Ken Garner, Senior Vice President, Content Creation, at APTech.
