Recover Ready Dashboard

The Recovery Ready Risk Dashboard is an innovative tool available to businesses to help keep them secure and alive.

The Recovery Ready Dashboard software makes it easy for SMEs to identify vulnerabilities, gaps and opportunities from different viewpoints within their organisation, specifically in the post COVID-19 era.

With COVID-19 causing unprecedented changes to the external environment, the Dashboard allows you to think historically about issues and raises issues which may have been overlooked without it.

Business owners and Senior Managers are going to have to make difficult decisions in the coming months. The Dashboard gives you the flexibility to create a afe return to work environment, whilst managing those staff members still working from home. It allows you to focus on your operating costs and cashflow, especially within the next 12 months with debts to be repaid.

Every SME should be integrating risk management strategies, no matter it's type or size, role or seniority, businesses need to be able to manage and take risks. Here at BB-BMG we are partnering with the Recovery Ready Risk Dashboard. Our joint aim is to help ensure that Coventry & Warwickshire's SMEs are in a position to come out of the COVID-19 crisis in a fit and proper state to carry on business. That requires that the SME still exists, that they have the roper resources and that the wider economic ecosystem is healthy.

Your business can use the tool for free. Please use the code BB2021.
