Hurricane Season is here and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has published its predictions for the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season. Forecasters are predicting a near- to slightly above-normal season with 12 to 14 named storms likely. Of those, five to seven are forecast to become hurricanes and two to four are forecast to become major hurricanes.
Postal Center International (PCI) and its family of brands, including Original Impressions (OI) has a disaster recovery plan in place – and encourages other companies to do the same. This plan is part of the Company’s comprehensive business continuity, emergency preparedness and disaster recovery plans that encompasses all facilities and all areas of the business to ensure critical back-up and resiliency.

“As the leading print, mail and marketing partner of choice to many industry leaders, we need to deliver the scale, security and reliability necessary to meet the demanding requirements of enterprises pre- and post- storm,” said Ismael Diaz, president, Postal Center International. “Our client-first mindset dictates that we minimize storm exposure and ensure our business is back up and running as soon as possible – and our new corporate headquarters in Weston, Fla. Is designed specifically to meet this demand.”

The building, located at 2965 West Corporate Lakes Boulevard, is equipped with hurricane impact-resistant windows and bay doors, along with other key features that comply with our very specific Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) requirements that make it a safe and secure building for our clients’ highly secure data and inventory management programs.

In addition to data collocation, PCI safeguards clients’ printed collateral, inventoried materials and the like by taking the following measures:
• PCI equips each of its facilities with multiple generators for uninterrupted power
• PCI has managers who live within three miles of each facility for rapid response and assessment; they are also trained to serve as emergency courier drivers to fulfill regular courier operations and routes
• Should the need arise, PCI can leverage its family of brands to duplicate storage of electronic and other key back-up data, courier route information, production schedules, etc. – each location is equipped to provide complete back-up capabilities to the other in the event disaster strikes
• Above and beyond this, PCI maintains a strategic partnership with an out-of-state company whose business capabilities and regulatory compliance commitments mirror those of PCI who can offer complete back-up capabilities

This end-to-end approach ensures PCI has the systems, equipment and personnel required for improved back- up quality, restored speed and increased productivity in the hours and days immediately following a disaster.
