This winter we saw the release of Everbridge Mobile Aware™ app for iOS™, Android™ and Blackberry™ devices, a bandwidth-sipping version of our Emergency Notification solution optimized for mobile connectivity. This was a hot topic at DRJ’s Spring World 2012, where many participants stopped by our booth for a look at the future of Emergency Notification and Incident Management on mobile devices.
“Their interactive, two way communications and focus on real time situational awareness are really way ahead of anything else in the market,” said Jim Duncan, director of emergency management for Walla Walla County, WA. “Quite honestly, the focus they have placed on their advanced mobile platform is really incredible. I have the ability to launch notifications from my phone or tablet — really amazing.”
The innovations Everbridge has made contributed to being positioned as a “leader” in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for U.S. Emergency / Mass Notification Services in 2012.
“Mobile technology has become a critical delivery method for EMNS. In fact, key recovery personnel — BCM managers, crisis and incident managers, and event commanders — are already equipped with smartphones and tablets, and will be coming to the crisis with these devices,” Roberta J. Witty wrote in the January 2012 Gartner report titled The Emergency or Mass Notification Service Market: Now and for the Next Five Years. “As a result, being able to perform outbound messaging from the smartphone or tablet device is a basic requirement in 2011. In 2012 and beyond, EMNS on a mobile device will take EMNS well beyond messaging and into emergency management operations and situational awareness of overall recovery management.”
Our other recent innovations include the industry’s first elastic infrastructure model, which offers near infinite scale and capacity to efficiently respond to any event, whether local, regional or global. Additionally,
“We view our Magic Quadrant leader’s position as confirmation of Everbridge as a leading provider of emergency and mass notification services,” said Jaime Ellertson, Chief Executive Officer, Everbridge. “Working closely with our customers, we have developed cutting edge solutions that empower organizations to communicate with their stakeholders on any device, throughout the incident lifecycle, to protect their most important assets. Everbridge’s innovative approach led to the development of the industry’s first elastic infrastructure model, as well as providing advanced mobile connectivity to give access to our platform from anywhere.”
