April 29, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Victoria, BC, April 29, 2008 – Metamend Software & Design Ltd., an award winning search engine marketing and search engine optimization firm, had part of its Canadian facilities damage by water and fire limited to a wing of its commercial building. Fire destroyed several businesses sharing an office complex with Metamend Search Marketing early Sunday morning, April 27, 2008. The renown search engine marketing firm’s main offices were spared most of the fire damage however the building itself was rendered unsafe for occupation. No one was hurt during the incident.

Though Metamend’s offices are currently inaccessible, the company continues operating as normal. Working from home-offices, staff members are responding to telephone or email inquiries, and client engagements are continuing as usual while the administration is securing new office space.

Critical company assets, such as client and corporate data, are housed and stored off-site where it is both secure and accessible to Metamend staff. Metamend’s search engine marketing services will continue without interruption or hindrance. Metamend expects that customers are unlikely to notice any changes in service delivery over the upcoming week.

“Fortunately, because of the nature of our business, our staff and administration is able to work remotely until new office space opens later this week,” said Metamend President, Glenn Convey. Convey continues, “Metamend will execute a disaster management plan for its facilities. With current technology and investment made over the past year, our administration has been able to re-establish operations quickly and efficiently. Fortunately, no one was hurt from the fire and the damage is confined to facilities only.”

According to media reports, it took the efforts of 24 firefighters, four fire engines, an aerial ladder and a rescue truck to battle the late-night blaze. Metamend would like to extend its gratitude and appreciation to the Saanich and Victoria Fire Departments.
