Mass Notification for Companies
Evaluating systems of mass notification for companies can require careful thought. Whereas there are many good vendors providing a mass notification service for companies, there are relatively few “one-size-fits-all” solutions. Furthermore, depending on the motive for implementing a system of mass notification for companies, some solutions can be relatively inflexible.
These were the thoughts in our minds when we developed Rave Alert – a feature-rich mass notification service for companies that uses multiple channels of communication to maximize the reach of the notification service, and has the flexibility companies need to enhance their corporate communication strategies and encourage employee engagement.
Naturally, as the primary purpose of mass notification for companies is to quickly warn employees of the risk of danger, the Rave Alert has been designed with ease of use as a priority. Any mass notification software for companies that is complicated to understand and operate can delay the receipt of important messages and potentially cost lives.
Using our Mass Notification Service for Companies in an Emergency
Our mass notification service for companies works via a web-based platform. Whenever a system managers wants to send a message, they log into the platform, compose their message (or use an existing template), select who is to receive the message and the channel(s) of communication the message is to be sent through, and click send.
In an emergency situation, the process is accelerated by selecting “All” to receive the message and “All” channels of communication. This means that everybody within the company´s database will be sent the emergency alert by whatever contact details have been entered for them. These include voice broadcasts, SMS text, email, social media, CAP, RSS and Alertus.
Being web-based, system managers can access the service from any Internet-connected device and send updates during an emergency to improve situational awareness and incident management. Rave Alert also supports two-way communication – enabling employees in need of help to request assistance or provide valuable information to first responders and other emergency personnel.
