Business Continuity Planning for the Coronavirus Outbreak

line

We continue to navigate these uncertain times and remain focused on the health and safety of our employees and our communities, as well as our clients and business partners. We have a business continuity plan in place should the situation continue to escalate.

 

Update on April 6th, 2020

As COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc on our nation, we remain focused on the health and safety of our employees and our communities, as well as our clients and business partners. Our Task Force continues to meet daily to address issues and take necessary actions as things evolve. I am happy to report that 90 percent of our employees are working remotely and we have maintained 100 percent of our employees at full pay. In addition, we are hiring 25 new team members so that we are prepared to meet the needs of our clients. We also have the largest Field Force in our industry and they are working hard to stay personally connected to our clients and advocating on their behalf.

 

We’re Here for You

As an essential financial services provider we take our obligation very seriously. We remain committed to maintaining all of our operations so that we can continue to meet the needs of you and your consumers in this difficult time. In addition, we continue to closely monitor all regulatory agencies to ensure we provide the most accurate and compliant information to you as quickly as possible. Our risk management team is sending out regular program specific communications as our operations evolve with this ongoing crisis. 

 

We’re Here for the Community

We care deeply about the communities in which we work and live and are actively working to help meet their greatest needs. One area we are focused on is getting money to organizations whose mission is to feed hungry children. With school now cancelled indefinitely and financial hardships running rampant, there is a growing need to help subsidize efforts to make sure that families in our communities have enough food.

People helping people, this is what our industry was founded on. I believe we are starting to see the best of humanity pull together during this crisis and that gives me hope. Thank you for your continued trust and know that we are here for you.

We are continuing to navigate the current situation and evaluate a rapidly changing regulatory environment. To stay up to date on these communications visit  our COVID-19 Regulatory Updates & Response page.

Update on March 18th, 2020

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and its impact continues to evolve, we remain focused on the health and safety of our employees and our communities, as well as our commitment to our clients and business partners.

We are closely monitoring the news, following recommendations from the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and adapting as new information is made available. We are swiftly taking appropriate steps in response to this crisis to protect our employees while working to maintain the systems necessary to ensure continued support of our clients.

As part of our Business Continuity Plan, we have assembled a pandemic Task Force that meets daily to address any related issues. We have taken these actions to keep our teams productive while ensuring we do our part to limit the spread of the virus:

  • All business travel has been put on hold effective March 13th
  • Company events have been either postponed or revised from in person gatherings to virtual meetings
  • Remote work protocols have been put in place across the organization

In addition, we are closely monitoring all regulatory agencies to ensure we continue to provide the most accurate and compliant risk management services. We will be proactively communicating any changes to these programs and their coverages as things continue to evolve with this ongoing crisis.

Thank you for your trust and patience during this time. As we find ourselves living in a great deal of uncertainty, we feel confident that by supporting each other, we will emerge from this crisis stronger than before.

Update on March 5th, 2020 

Heightened attention has been given to organizational continuity impact plans due to the outbreak of Coronavirus disease. Allied Solutions takes pandemic risk seriously and while outbreaks appear minimal in the United States so far, we have a business continuity plan in place should the situation escalate.

The plan includes actively monitoring updates provided by the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control, following guidance from these organizations, auditing (or tracking) our own preparedness levels, and coordinating responses across business units in the event of a pandemic.

Allied Solutions is uniquely positioned to shift certain functions to other facilities in the event of an outbreak due to operations being largely divided among three primary locations: Carmel, Indiana (Headquarters); Plano, Texas; and Dakota Dunes, South Dakota. Additionally, a large number of employees are equipped to work remotely and would be asked to do so in the event that they are at high risk, come in contact with the virus, or an office is closed due to a local outbreak.

Thank you for putting your trust in us. We are here to deliver for you.
