As I’m sure you’re aware, the #yycflood has caused significant outages, evacuations, utility issues, and damage across Calgary. I hope you and your family are safe and secure.

Over the last 24 hours, we have successfully initiated and acted upon the Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery plans we have in place for both ourselves and our Outsourced IT Services subscribers. In some cases we’ve recovered equipment and moved it in-house to InfinIT HQ so that our clients may remain operational during the evacuation via remote access, and in other cases we have been able to ensure that our clients remain productive by accessing their infrastructure directly.

That being said, there are thousands of businesses in Calgary who will have suffered significant data loss, hardware destruction, and business operation disruption. At this time we are reaching out to our community to offer our support.

If you know of any business owner affected by this outage without IT support or who’s IT support team is unable to respond, we are available to support those business owners in creating and acting upon a disaster recovery plan. We will help them structure these plans FREE OF CHARGE.

We believe in the Calgary economy. We know this is going to have a tremendous impact on small and medium businesses. We want to help them get BACK ON-LINE and BACK TO WORK so that we can minimize the chances of those businesses failing or going bankrupt.

Furthermore, we are leveraging our partnerships with Fortinet, HP, VMware, and others to get hardware and infrastructure replaced as quickly as we can. If you know of anyone who needs equipment replaced under an insurance claim, we can assist them in itemizing their assets, determining a replacement value, and submitting those claims to their insurance provider.

Finally, we know that the emotional impact of this disaster will have a significant impact on your productivity and efficiency. By applying The Demartini Method, we can assist individuals, families, or entire organizations to find the benefits and discover gratitude for this apparent catastrophe and help you get back on your feet as quickly as you can.

If we can be of any service or assistance, please send an email to yycflood@infinitsolutions.ca or contact our office at 403-453-1670.

With love and gratitude,
Alexander Ford, CEO, InfinIT Inc.
