The two companies began to talk about how strengths in IT Disaster Recovery, building automated systems, and the comprehensive approach to Emergency Response and Recovery could provide complete solutions. They were two sides of a coin, one had energy, vision and resources, the other had creative ideas and ability to execute. The combined vision and those ideas for the betterment of an industry could provide for complete disaster readiness.
It was then, their own disaster struck Nexis and could have derailed their success story. One of the original founders grew ill and could no longer continue. They all wanted to create something that empowered people to protect themselves during disasters. Founded in strength, spirituality, emotion, and most importantly, goodness, Malcolm stepped in and made the vision a reality by creating Nexis Emergency Solutions combining the strengths and unique capabilities of the two organizations.
But beyond this, we realized that there was still a key component missing, a single source of truth for their entire program. And on that day, the idea for TRIM (Tactical Resource Information Management) system was born. TRIM was the single unifying factor that could bring all the forward thinking approaches together.
When you need to unite all aspects of your Emergency Response Program, TRIM is the unifying platform that proactively assess and monitors your sites’ readiness. You can then focus strategically on continuous improvement and maturing programs to meet your Effective Response and Recovery objectives
And out of this philosophy, vision, and expertise bloomed a new Nexis. A new structure, renewed resiliency, and a unique toolset that would protect them—and their clients from that moment on.
Nexis learned firsthand a powerful lesson that has driven the development of industry-changing trainings, solutions, and now a powerful software platform: that while it’s almost impossible to completely prepare for your first disaster—you will certainly remember—and learn from it.
So, you’re not alone. As a Nexis customer, you can rest knowing that Nexis is here. Having lived it, we understand the importance of comprehensive planning, resourcing, and insight—it’s in our bones, in our structure, and in everything we do.
With Nexis, you’re prepared for almost anything.
