We are proud to announce that Gartner, the global research and advisory firm, has listed 4C Strategies as one of the Representative Vendors in its newly published 2020 Market Guide for Crisis/Emergency Management (C/E M) Solutions.
The key findings within the report include the fact that C/E M Solutions are being used by organizations in highly regulated industries, such as utilities, healthcare and financial services, to facilitate command and control during crisis events. Furthermore, there is an industry-wide transition to integrating C/EM solutions into day-to-day operations.
4C Strategies’ Exonaut® software, goes beyond crisis/emergency management, to include business continuity, incident and risk management as well as training and exercise management modules in one secure, off-the-shelf solution.
Each module comes with an intuitive dashboard that can be tailored to provide relevant data, analysis and reports. Customers can choose one or multiple modules to meet their needs. Exonaut is available as software as a service via the cloud or it can be deployed on-premises. Additionally, it can be integrated as standard with the most common user management, business intelligence, military simulator and emergency dispatcher tools, while the Exonaut API can feed or collect data from multiple systems. Android and iOS apps are also available.
The flexibility, feature-set, usability and high-grade security of Exonaut, make the solution a popular tool for highly regulated industries and public organizations. The NATO accredited software is also one of the most commonly used military training and exercise management tools.
“COVID-19 has triggered a significant increase in interest in C/EM solutions,” according to Bergqvist. “Exonaut is ideally positioned to support organizations with their pandemic response. Our crisis management consultants have used Exonaut to analyze and improve the business continuity and incident management capabilities of many public and private organizations during the pandemic.”

Exonaut case studies include the European Union External Action Service (EEAS). They use Exonaut to facilitate the online coordination of consular crisis response amongst the EEAS and EU Member as well as partner countries like the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, and Switzerland. They have now evolved the use of Exonaut’s Incident and Crisis Manager, to include the COVID-19 response. In the private section, Exonaut was used when analyzing, modeling and increasing the business continuity and incident management capabilities of Openreach, the owner of the UK’s broadband and telephone infrastructure, mid-pandemic.
