Incident Management System Crisis communication organized for food industry companies needing immediate internal and external communication for quick response and incident management.
N2N Global’s Incident Management System
Incident Management System or “IMS” assists companies with crisis communication and provides a robust process to notify key individuals of the circumstances for rapid deployment of corrective measures.
Beginning with the notification from operations, the internal lab, or even a regulatory body, client users create the “Incident” and initiate phone calls to a directory list of contacts. From there a call is initiated by IMS to the list of contacts that are then prompted to a website or email communication. Call recipients then obtain access to the IMS Portal and complete a series of steps to initiate a response to the phone or email communication. Recipients of the call may have any number of required responses based on their role in the organization. “Executive” users may simply be notified of the incident. Regional Managers may be notified and prompted for validation. Manager users may be prompted to follow a series of steps to ensure the sub-par or contaminated product has been destroyed, placed on hold, or otherwise kept from being consumed. Validation of these processes is ultimately documented in the “Certificate of Destruction.” The results of the Incident are reported to the “Incident Manager” for immediate reporting to management or executives.
Clients can also decide to initiate further calls to those that may not have responded to an initial set of dial outs.
Scripts for calls can be templates or dynamically created.
IMS offers the ability to upload a set of contacts and initiate blanket messages without response from the population or with response required from the population. Scripts can include Yes / No or multiple choice answers with an unlimited number of questions.
IMS includes the ability to schedule communication by time zone. A multi-lingual option offers users the ability to receive instructions in their native language. IMS also offers international dialling capabilities so that all your operations can be managed globally on a single communications platform.
