Agility Recovery is proud to announce that it has partnered with AATAC and will be the preferred vendor of business resumption and disaster recovery solutions for AATAC members. This partnership ensures that whatever the business interruption, Agility will help convenience store owners and operators continue serving their local communities and avoid becoming a victim of the disaster. In particular, by quickly restoring power and communications using Agility, AATAC members will serve as community heroes, providing the critical fuel and other resources citizens need. Following any incident causing a store to halt operations, Agility can deploy generators, communications equipment, computer systems and mobile office space to help AATAC members restore regular business operations.
“Agility has a proven track record in disaster recovery, meaning that any participating retailer in our national network will suffer minimally from interruptions that may affect their business,” said Sunil Capita, Associated Director of AATAC. Sunil continued, “This also means that if other businesses in the area are shut down, our member’s stores will be open and able to service the community. We’re looking forward to bringing our store owners additional peace of mind with the many support services they’ll now have access to through Agility and its resources.”
Hyune Hand, CEO of Agility Recovery agreed, stating “By helping store owners restore power and communications, AATAC members can ensure they are able to reliably serve customers and their communities. These businesses are critical to the areas they serve, and must remain open. By doing so, they can protect their bottom line as well as provide for employees and stakeholders. No matter the circumstances, large or small, Agility can help make that possible.”
Recovery services are not limited to only natural disasters, but also includes any type of business interruption ranging from power loss and utility interruptions, to construction accidents and communications issues. Agility has over 26 years of experience rescuing businesses of all types and proudly points to a 100% success rate. In addition to the physical recovery elements provided at time of disaster, AATAC members who join Agility are also provided access to myAgility, an online planning portal that incorporates helpful business continuity planning tools, as well as an internal Alert Notification System and cloud-based document storage. Their employees are also provided access to myAgility Family, a personal family disaster planning tool provided free of charge to each employee, helping them become better prepared at home and more likely to be able to return to work following a disaster event.
The AATAC is a national association council of buying groups and trade associations integrated under one entity that spans over 50,000 primary and affiliate members collectively canvassing over 90,000 convenience stores, gas stations, corner stores and other retail outlets throughout the United States. The group forms relationships with select corporate suppliers for the benefit of the group, supports the various groups under its wing, hosts trade shows and private meetings, and distributes newsletters and other communications to its member partners that are predominantly independent retail owners of Asian and Indian descent.
