Schipul Creates Emergency Preparedness Alliance with Firestorm Solutions LLC

HOUSTON, Dec. 19. 2007 – Schipul – The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), a provider of Web marketing products and services for businesses and associations, is taking action to minimize the potential impact of a business disruption. Schipul has entered into a strategic alliance with Firestorm Solutions LLC, a leader in business continuity planning, vulnerability analysis, risk mitigation and crisis management.

Schipul’s rapid growth and commitment to client service have fueled its interest in planning for disaster. The Houston-based company has a client base of nearly 400 businesses and associations, and more than a half million people regularly use Tendenci® Web marketing software, which is developed and marketed by Schipul. The Houston Area Red Cross, which serves almost 6 million people in 16 counties, recently launched a new Web site powered by Tendenci.

“We have a responsibility to the organizations that depend on us to deliver maximum uptime, communication and service even in the worst of circumstances,” said Ed Schipul, CEO of Schipul – The Web Marketing Company. “Through this process we anticipate being able to improve our software and services to be a greater value to our clients and the communities they serve.”

Tendenci software features a unique set of Web-based disaster preparedness tools that can help organizations respond quickly and effectively. Tendenci’s first responder tool ensures that emergency communications reach critical people. Tendenci’s volunteer coordination portal and emergency social services check-in feature help to organize relief efforts.

Firestorm believes the Schipul team’s mindset could be the key to the company’s survival. Approximately 40 percent of small or medium businesses fail to reopen after a disaster affects them. And of those that do reopen, another 25 percent close within two years.
 
“We find most businesses are in disaster denial, thinking that it can’t happen to them, so it is refreshing to work with a team that really embraces the process,” said Jim Satterfield, CEO of Firestorm. “The increasing importance of the Web in keeping information flowing and keeping employees, customers and communities updated makes our work with Schipul that much more significant.”

As part of the strategic alliance, Schipul will design a new dynamic Web site for Firestorm powered by Tendenci software. The site will feature a Content Management System to make it easy to post and update content, e-newsletter capabilities, an online event calendar and registration, and integrated Really Simple Syndication (RSS) to automate the process of alerting subscribers to updates.

Online Trends discussed on Business Maker's Radio Show

After a recent trip to the Austin SXSWi (South by Southwest Interactive) festival, Schipul's Katie Laird joined fellow technology advocate Kelsey Ruger on the Business Maker's Radio Show to discuss her experience at the event.
 

The importance of the Web user was an exceptionally important concept in this year's SXSWi event.  Whether through simplified and 'user-friendly' interfaces and design or via useful tools such as Flickr and Shadows, it has never been more important for technology developers and users to focus their efforts on connecting humans to data and humans to other humans.

This socially-focused online world is a far cry from the 'read only' Web 1.0 of days gone by.  Users are empowered with tools like del.icio.us to not only manage and organize their bookmarks (or favorite Web pages and content), but to share their findings with other users, discover new online content and join online communities that have similar interests.

With other technologies like blogging, podcasting and wikis, users are given active voices in the Internet community.   A Web site is no longer just a company brochure or static group of pages, it is a place to post your opinions, to comment and connect with strangers from around the globe, to collaborate with friends and co-workers in different physical locations and to find a wealth of information with a touch of humanity.
