Company

AVENTUS was formed in 1997 to help our clients meet the challenges of developing and implementing business continuity, IT continuity and disaster recovery planning and to help bring project management under control.  

Teamwork


We work with you, in such a way that you are in control and are fully informed of project status and progress. We do this by implementing a project management process for all contracts no matter how small or large, including regular status meetings, project progress tracking and stringent change control procedures.

Strength

We provide project solutions in the areas of:

  • Business Continuity Planning
  • Disaster Recovery Planning
  • Project Management and Guidance

Flexibility

We have a variety of staff and teams available on short notice with broad capabilities and are able to provide short term project staffing through to complete project teams.

Solutions Oriented

We provide solutions to your problems. We apply an analytical process to understand your needs and make sure we meet them in the most efficient and logical manner possible.

Quality Resources

We use certified practitioners most of whom who hold Certified Business Continuity Professional (CBCP) or Master Business Continuity Professional (MBCP) certifications from the Disaster Recovery Institute. Some of our practitioners hold Associate Business Continuity Professional (ABCP) certifications from DRII The Institute For Continuity Management and certifications from other organizations.

.

We also apply the principals of project management to all projects big or small. The project management principals applied in our Business Continuity Risk Management practice methodology are based on the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) as set out by the Project Management Institute.

We strive to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

It is important to note that the needs of each organization are unique. The needs of a particular organization may require modification and fine tuning of the exact execution of the planning process to suit their operating structure, budget or business priorities.

We endeavor to tailor our approach to suit your unique needs.

Best Practices Methodology

AVENTUS Solutions has adopted the standards of several organizations as a basis for our business continuity and IT continuity, disaster recovery planning best practices:

  • National Fire Protection Association – NFPA 1600 and CSA z1600
  • International Organization for Standardization – ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management
  • DRII The Institute For Continuity Management - Professional Practices
  • Project Management Institute – Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK)
  • ITIL IT Service Management processes and principals

Drawing from the body of knowledge from these organizations we have developed a methodology for our practice which encompasses the entire scope of recovery planning including Governance, Emergency Response, Project Management, Business Impact Analysis, Threat and Risk Assessment, Control and Abatement, practical documentation practices and a strong belief in the need to Test and Maintain the plans that are derived from this process.

Certified Business Continuity Vendor (CBCV) Company President and Founder, Dale Windle is a Certified Business Continuity Vendor (CBCV) by the DRII The Institute For Continuity Management's Certification
Commission, as well as MBCP, CBCP, ITIL Foundations certified and is a former PMP.

 

Software Solutions

We have completed over 40 BCP and IT Continuity, Disaster Recovery projects. Many of our clients have been frustrated by the BCP plan development and management software tools available. So we have done our research, tested most of the products available and picked the one we feel does the best job for the highest value.

The Best of People

CBCP and MBCP Certification
On the job, common sense based knowledge is our foundation, but we do not want to rely totally on years of experience - we require structure and predictability for our work. Hence our staff have an maintain certified status from industry recognized Business Continuity Professional organizations.

PMP Certification and Project Management

All Business Continuity work starts as a project. So it makes sense to manage a BCP or IT DR project with sound project management principles. We ensure that all projects have the involvements of a certified project manager to ensure high levels of success, on time, within budget.

Active Continuous Education
We believe in the concept of continuous improvement. Our staff are encouraged and required to continuously refresh their knowledge, credentials and experience. They read, study, take courses and remain open minded to ensure we provide you with the best of service and ideas to ensure successful BCP and IT Disaster Recovery projects.

Practical Knowledge and Common Sense

One of the most uncommon traits in today's world is common sense. We pride ourselves on applying a common sense approach to all of our BCP and IT Disaster Recovery projects. Our goal is to tailor the work to meet your requirements, not some abstract theory of what is required!.
