Preparis, a company that offers a subscription-based software platform to help other companies prepare their workplaces for disasters, just brought in $4.6 million led by Fulcrum Ventures. Based in Atlanta, Preparis provides comprehensive information to help its clients weather terrorist attacks, natural disasters, disease pandemics (H1N1 “swine flu” is actually included already), workplace violence, and more. For example, it supplies applications and software tools to call up standard response protocols and checklists, host training sessions and webinars, and recommend security measures as conditions change.

The company says it will use its new round of funding to expand its sales and marketing operations, and to continue product development on its ACTION Platform.
