Summary
  • An account of how Electrolux Canada was back online within 12 days of a fire that destroyed its Montreal computer center highlights the value of having feasible contingency-emergency plans and a third-party maintenance company. Through swift maneuvering, and help from IBM and Memorex together with Richard Bessner &​ Associates Ltd (the third-party maintenance firm), Electrolux was provided with a complete replacement of its IBM System-38, a CPU, terminals, printers, disk drives, tape drive, cables and modems within 45 minutes. Backup data tapes were duplicated by IBM and loaded into the company's Toronto computers, which created just a day and a half lag for work. The lesson Electrolux learned was a greater appreciation of third party consultants who are more flexible in time-value emergency situations.
