Oklahoma Christian University Deploys AT&T Notification System
Oklahoma Christian University (OC) has deployed a new Web-based notification system from smarter utility leader AT&T, to offer its students, faculty, staff and parents with relevant and timely notifications via text message, e-mail or recorded voice message.
University students now just have to use the latest notification system to stay connected to receive large-scale communications such as school closure notifications, as well as alerts specific to their courses and extracurricular activities.
The newly deployed Rave Campus Messenger from AT&T allows OC users to distribute messages, from important notifications to tuition due dates, in a simple, flexible manner, across a multitude of different devices. Users can even have an option to choose their most preferred communication method – text message, e-mail or recorded voice message.
Apart from that, this robust and versatile platform offers an “EyeWitness” feature, through which anyone on campus can anonymously report a maintenance issue or other important security information via text message. It can also be used for a large number of messaging purposes within higher education, but simple enough to be activated with a few clicks of the mouse.
“Choosing Rave Campus Messenger from AT&T (News – Alert) as our notification system was an easy decision, as it’s a flexible solution that integrates seamlessly with our existing infrastructure and learning management system,” said John Hermes, vice president for Information Technology and chief technology officer at Oklahoma Christian University.
John Hermes said that they’ve been impressed not only with how quickly the system can be turned up with very little effort, but also by how simple it is for students, faculty and staff to use.
With a powerful array of network resources that includes the nation’s fastest mobile broadband network, AT&T is a leading provider of wireless, Wi-Fi, high speed Internet, voice and cloud-based services. AT&T also offers the best wireless coverage worldwide of any U.S. carrier, offering the most wireless phones that work in the most countries.
