Keep Your Organization Connected

The delivery of certain messages can’t be left to chance. The ease and accuracy of communication are critical in times of crisis, and our mass notification and alert service is a quick and convenient way to keep information flowing through your organization regardless of the circumstances. 

Whether you’re notifying thousands of employees of an emergency plant closing or advising several office personnel of a security breach, it’s vital that the appropriate parties receive the information they need, when they need it. With our mass notification system, a single message can be transmitted across your entire organization at the click of a button.

One Way to Reach Everyone

As a unified communication system, a single message delivered from our mass notification service can be delivered via multiple channels, including SMS (text), email, and voice. Using multiple methods ensures each person receives your notifications in a timely manner. 

Target & Automate 

Automate reminders, broadcast voice recordings, manage emergency alerts, and more. Reach individuals across multiple communication channels including SMS (text), email, and voice. Send text and voice messages in real-time or schedule them in advance. Segment your audience by location, department, shift, role, and other parameters to ensure the right people receive each communication. 

Simple and Convenient

Managed online via a cloud-based dashboard, our mass notification system is easy to use and can be maintained by non-technical staff. From the online interface, users can draft and transmit messages, as well as maintain personnel databases and contact information. In addition, contacts can be filtered by department or location, and messages can be scheduled and set to repeat as needed.
