Emergency Text Notification for Business
Due to the popularity of SMS text messaging, emergency text notification for business is the single most effective way to communicate the risk of danger to employees. However, because carriers limit the number of text messages it is possible to send simultaneously, it is necessary to use a software solution in order to alert an entire workforce to the risk of danger by SMS text in an emergency situation.
There are various software solutions that provide a system of emergency text notification for business, but it can be beneficial to implement a solution that does not rely exclusively on SMS text messaging to send emergency notifications. This is because some businesses require employees to silence their mobile phones during working hours and because some employees do so by choice.
Rave Alert is a multi-channel emergency notification system that primarily uses SMS text messaging to alert employees to the risk of danger, but also uses voice broadcasts, CAP, email, RSS, social media and email to maximize the reach of its service. Rather than complicate the emergency notification process, Rave Alert accelerates the process to improve incident management and minimize business disruption.
Rave Alert Emergency Text Notification for Business
Rave Alert is a web-based platform that can be accessed from any Internet-connected device, so is suitable not just for warning employees of an emergency situation, but also for providing updates throughout an incident, and an all-clear once the risk of danger has passed. The platform is easy to use and facilitates two-way communication so that key personnel can liaise during an incident, and so that employees in need of assistance can request help.
When an emergency situation is notified to the business´s system administrator, he or she logs into the Rave Alert platform, composes an emergency notification message, selects that the message is sent to all employees in the location of the incident and through all communication channels. They then confirm the message and click “send”, and – within seconds – the message is dispatched to every employee potentially affected by the incident.
By using multiple channels of communication – through many of which employees can communicate with the system administrator – our platform for emergency text notification for business reaches the maximum number of people in the minimum amount of time. Employees who have silenced their mobile phones will receive voice broadcasts and emails alerting them to the risk of danger, so there is no risk of them failing to receive the emergency notification and taking appropriate action.
