An emergency notification system for companies is a messaging platform that can be used to advise employees of a risk of danger quickly and simultaneously – potentially saving many lives. The system can also be used as a two-way communications channel to keep employees informed during an emergency situation, to respond to calls for help, and to sound an all clear when the situation has been resolved.
Due to the number of communication channels used by our messaging platform, Rave Mobile Safety is unsurpassable in effectively communicating an emergency. From an employer´s perspective, an emergency notification system for companies from Rave Mobile Safety improves the employer´s duty of care posture and minimizes the commercial impact of an adverse event.
How an Emergency Notification System for Companies Works
The first stage of setting up an emergency notification system for companies is for a system administrator or safety officer to contact Rave Mobile Safety and organize access to the web-based Rave Alert messaging platform. Then, depending on the company´s privacy policies, employees and other key contacts can be loaded onto the platform either automatically or via our SMS opt-in add-on.
The facility exists to assign employees into groups depending on their roles, location or other attributes – for example, employees with medical training. This can be done during the autoload process or by assigning different SMS opt-in keywords to different group headings. Employees can be assigned to multiple groups, or can choose to join different groups through a company-branded web portal.
Because Rave Mobile Safety’s emergency notification system for companies can easily integrate with the company-branded web portal, employees can log in and edit their contact details, indicate their preference(s) for receiving emergency notifications (text, voice, social media, email, RSS, etc.) and to note any special needs they may have – such as mobility issues or health conditions – that would require bringing to the attention of first responders in the event of an emergency.
Through Rave Alert’s web-based messaging platform, the system administrator or safety officer can access the emergency notification system for companies from any Internet-enabled device during an emergency situation. If necessary they can send alerts, updates and all clear messages from their personal mobile device in order to keep employees up-to-date without placing themselves in danger.
Using the System to Accelerate Corporate Communications
The ability to divide an employee database into groups can help accelerate non-emergency corporate communications. As mentioned above, employees can be assigned into different groups depending on their roles, location or other attributes, so – for example – an emergency notification system for companies could be used to highlight an issue to the IT department or maintenance personnel.
Grouping employees enables system administrators to send targeted messages to individuals or departments without sending everybody in the company a message that is irrelevant to the majority. Although this could be done by email, or SMS, or social media, Rave Alert´s messaging platform can send a message via multiple communication channels simultaneously to ensure the message is received.
The system can also be used as an information portal during exhibitions and conferences. Visitors and delegates can temporarily opt-in to a special group created on the platform for the event and – as temporary contacts – receive reminders about special presentations. The emergency notification system for companies can be used as a point of contact for delegates who get lost in unfamiliar surroundings.
Certain compliance issues can also be addressed with an emergency notification system for companies. The messaging platform can form part of a disaster recovery plan for companies in regulated industries, or be used to send messages to individuals or groups of individuals when auditable proof may be required about the content of the message and the fact that the message was received.
