Business continuity provider Classic Blue has recently announced its acquisition of TSA Communication's Disaster Recovery Centre (DRC). TSA is NEC's major Queensland reseller of PABX equipment, as well as call accounting and billing software.
Classic Blue will be maintaining the same customer relations as established by the DRC in terms of extended telephony support, as well as adding its own disaster recovery skills to the Fortitude Valley operation, and enhancing the Business Recovery Centre that Classic Blue established in Queensland last year.
"Through this acquisition, Classic Blue will provide workplace recovery solutions to TSA's clients with facilities that cater for up to 200 seats in an office environment," said Classic Blue managing director Adrian Bogatez. In addition to TSA's telephony support, the Queensland arm of the operation will also feature full disaster recovery options for everything from desktop computers to entire call centres.
The acquisition means that Classic Blue has over 700 seats spread between Sydney, Melbourne and now Brisbane, as well as mobile services that can cover anywhere in the country. Bogatez believes that now, more then ever, is when businesses need to be thinking about worst-case scenarios.
"What September 11 taught America is that anything can and does happen," he said, speaking on the first anniversary of the attacks, "and the lesson for Australia is that we should be prepared for a worst-case scenario, even when we feel as though it will never happen to us'."
