Everbridge Selected by Tuscaloosa, AL to Power Cross-Jurisdiction Regional Emergency Notification Platform

TuscALERT to Unite Regional First Responders to Provide Near Real-Time, Critical Safety Information

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), a global software company that provides critical event management and enterprise safety applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, today announced it has been selected by Tuscaloosa, AL to launch TuscALERT, the Tuscaloosa-area’s local alert system.
TuscALERT builds on Everbridge’s strong presence in the State of Alabama, providing critical weather and emergency information to residents and businesses in the City of Tuscaloosa, the City of Northport, Tuscaloosa County and Tuscaloosa County Emergency Management Agency (EMA). The Everbridge critical event management platform will help unite the activities of first responders in these locales in order to improve emergency coordination and preparation, as well as engagement with residents and visitors.
By registering with TuscALERT, area residents and employees can receive time-sensitive text messages, e-mails or voice messages from the county or city in which they live or work. During critical situations, such as tornados, public officials can issue messages through multiple available communications channels -- including phone, SMS and social media – to ensure they have the best chance of reaching the affected population in near real-time, creating a “network” around the use of the same platform. Tuscaloosa County will also deploy IPAWS (Integrated Public Alert & Warning System) to send geographically targeted messages to those in harm’s way, should a situation arise. “With an increasingly mobile population, we needed a solution that would reach our residents and employees who regularly travel across city and county lines,” said Rob Robertson, Director of Tuscaloosa County Emergency Management Agency. “Due to its robustness, security and scalability, Everbridge was the clear choice to help bring our emergency notification efforts under one umbrella, ensuring we are able to coordinate with neighboring communities, share information and quickly reach people across their preferred contact preferences with critical information during emergency situations.” Everbridge works with numerous other communities and organizations in Alabama, including Tuscaloosa’s neighbor, Jefferson County. Other customers include: DCH Health System, University of Alabama at Birmingham and University of South Alabama. “An added benefit of selecting the Everbridge platform was better connectivity with other counties and organizations, including a larger neighboring county, Jefferson County, AL,” said Robertson. “While the two EMA’s were already working together for closer collaboration and communication between the two counties, Everbridge now makes that communication and notification work flow more efficient and automated than ever before.” In April 2011, Tuscaloosa County endured a devastating major tornado outbreak which resulted in lost lives and property. The Tuscaloosa County EMA facility was among one of the buildings lost. A new storm rated facility is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017 to house the EMA and the area’s first consolidated Communications and Operation Center for all dispatching for multiple jurisdictions of Tuscaloosa County. The Everbridge system will be an integral part of the new Communications and Operations Center. Tuscaloosa County plans to expand its use of TuscALERT beyond weather alerts to notify area residents of all emergencies, from a missing person search to a HAZMAT situation. To register to receive important messages from TuscALERT, area residents and employees should visit the TuscALERT website here. About Everbridge: Everbridge, Inc.

Pharmavite Deploys Everbridge’s Safety Connection Solution to Keep Mobile Employees Safe

Los Angeles-based Manufacturer of Dietary Supplements Selects Safety Connection to Locate and Communicate with Mobile and Traveling Employees During Critical Events

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), a global software company that provides critical event management and enterprise safety applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, today announced that Pharmavite, LLC, has selected Everbridge’s Safety Connection™ to improve its ability to locate and communicate with lone workers, contractors, visitors, mobile and remote employees during critical business incidents and emergencies. Pharmavite, based in Northridge, California, will also leverage Incident Communications to power effective critical event management, coordination and resolution.

Founded in 1971, Pharmavite is a leader in the wellness industry and recognized for providing high-quality vitamins, minerals and supplements. Its employees frequently travel between their corporate offices, manufacturing facilities and customer locations, or journey abroad to collaborate with international colleagues and customers. Deploying Everbridge Safety Connection™ will enable the company to keep track of employees’ locations no matter where they are located geographically, helping to ensure global employee safety. Safety Connection aggregates geo-location data from multiple systems – wireless network access points, travel itineraries, home and office location records and check-ins through its mobile application – to dynamically locate, notify and instruct employees based on their actual location. “Major global organizations have hundreds of employees traveling between offices, campuses and even countries on a daily basis,” said Everbridge CMO Joel Rosen. “With so many active mobile employees, it is no longer effective to rely on perimeter security and static communication methods to keep people safe.

Everbridge to Discuss the Changing Role of Telemedicine at ATA 2017

BURLINGTON, Mass., – Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), a global software company that provides critical event management and enterprise safety applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, today announced it will showcase its critical communications platform and discuss the evolution of telemedicine at ATA 2017, taking place April 23 – 25, 2017 in Orlando, FL. Everbridge is  a leading critical communications provider, supporting hospitals and emergency departments with emergency preparedness, patient management, and IT communications. During the event, Everbridge will be making a presentation on telemedicine. WHAT:                 From Volume to Value: Changing the Role of Telemedicine WHEN:                 Tuesday, April 25 at 2:00 p.m. WHERE:               Room: W230 BC WHAT:                 U.S. healthcare is rapidly moving from a volume-to-value based model of care. Providers today are actively looking for ways to improve quality, decrease costs, and expand services to a broad and often difficult-to-engage population. This panel will discuss clinicians’ experience leading telemedicine programs across several different healthcare settings including primary care, pediatric care, and emergency departments. Attendees will learn about the unique challenges for each setting, the commonalities all providers face in meeting this triple aim and the evolving role of telemedicine. WHO:                   Eric Chetwynd, General Manager for Healthcare, Everbridge Ranya Habash, MD CMO, MAB, Chief Medical Officer, Everbridge Geeta Nayyar, MD, MBA, Chief Healthcare & Innovation Officer, Femwell Group Health Cydne Marckmann, DNP, ARNP, FAANP, Nurse Practitioner, Frontier Nursing University In addition to the presentation, Everbridge will share statistics from its “Care Communications Gaps in U.S. Hospital Emergency Departments” research. The study polled more than 150 hospitals  to gather insights on clinical communications within the emergency room. Some of the findings include:

  • A majority of emergency room employees reported more than 10 percent of patient care hand offs contain communication errors – errors that could endanger patient outcomes; 22 percent reported more than 1 in 5 hand offs involve errors.
  • Emergency room staff ranked the most, and least, effective forms of communication; real-time, face-to-face communication is most used and most effective. Secure-text messaging came in second for valued communication, an asset in today’s healthcare system where specialists and other medical resources are often not on-site with the patient.
“Everbridge is excited to participate in this year’s ATA 2017,” said Everbridge General Manager for Healthcare Eric Chetwynd. “Many health systems are trying to implement telemedicine programs across the country, but are challenged to implement the right real-time communication systems, policies, and workflows that can drive adoption and improve patient care. Everbridge is proud to be working with some of our over 1,000 U.S. hospital customers along their journey to usher in this new era of connected, highly accessible, highly effective healthcare.” About Everbridge: Everbridge, Inc.

Hulu Selects Everbridge to Enhance Global Employee Safety

Everbridge’s Safety Connection Greatly Improves Digital Streaming Company’s Ability to Locate and Communicate with Employees During Critical Events

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), a global software company that provides critical event management and enterprise safety applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, today announced that Hulu, a premium streaming television destination, has selected Everbridge’s Safety Connection™ solution to improve their ability to locate and communicate with mobile, travelling and remote employees during critical business incidents and emergencies.

Traditional manual approaches to critical communications may be insufficient in ensuring physical security and employee safety. Crises occur quickly and without warning so deploying Everbridge Safety Connection to keep track of employees’ locations, even when they are traveling or moving between buildings and campuses, is a critical component to ensuring global employee safety. The solution aggregates geo-location data from multiple systems – wireless network access points, travel itineraries, home and office location records, and check-ins through its mobile application – to take a multi-pronged approach to locating employees, responders, contractors or visitors who are potentially at risk. Leveraging this data, organizations can then target notifications via SMS text, voice, mobile app, digital signage or desktop alerts. “During a location-specific critical event, time is of the essence so companies need to be able to quickly find and communicate with their global employees,” said Jaime Ellertson, CEO of Everbridge. “Everbridge’s Safety Connection solution dynamically locates people who may be at risk, or can respond to an incident, and automates targeted, relevant communications to keep people safe and informed.” About Everbridge Everbridge, Inc.

Wake County, NC Selects Everbridge to Power Emergency Notifications to Nearly One Million Residents

Everbridge Connects Public Safety Officials with Residents to Deliver Critical Safety Information

BURLINGTON, Mass., April 10 2017Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), a global software company that provides critical event management and enterprise safety applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, today announced it has been selected by North Carolina’s Wake County, the second most populous county in the state, to power its emergency notification system. With this announcement, Everbridge expands its already extensive presence in the state, where it currently serves over 30 counties and cities, including Mecklenburg County and the City of Charlotte, as well as numerous healthcare organizations and businesses.

Wake County selected Everbridge’s Mass Notification system to allow area residents and businesses to receive time-sensitive text messages, e-mails or voice messages directly from County officials. During critical situations, such as a hurricane or missing person search, public officials can issue emergency alerts to communicate with the largest amount of people as quickly as possible. Wake County will also deploy IPAWS (Integrated Public Alert & Warning System) to send geographically targeted messages to residents on their mobile phones, should an urgent situation arise. The County will also use Community Engagement to provide easy SMS opt-in functionality and the ability to issue event-specific notifications to residents and visitors during area events such as the upcoming Ironman Competition.

“With an increasingly mobile population, traditional methods of emergency communication can no longer be relied upon in emergency situations,” said Bill Greeves, Chief Information & Innovation Officer, Wake County, NC. “Everbridge’s Mass Notification System gives local officials the ability to interact with area residents and businesses in situations where they may be in danger. Everbridge was appealing because it is used extensively through our state and it empowered us with a multi-modal solution that allows Wake County to quickly reach people with important information.”

In addition to Wake County, Everbridge works with a number of other communities and businesses in North Carolina, creating a “Network Effect”—a strong cluster of users in the area that can share incident intelligence and best practices to improve coordination, notification and response during crises. These customers include: City of Charlotte, Durham County, Guilford County, Mecklenburg County, Orange County, as well as the Biltmore Company, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, Charlotte Douglas International Airport and Hanesbrands Inc.

“Assessing threats, automating incident processes and communicating directly with area residents and businesses is essential to keeping people safe during critical events,” said Jaime Ellertson, CEO of Everbridge. “In Wake County, Everbridge is proud to support enhanced communication and coordination between multiple North Carolina area cities, businesses and schools to ensure more engaged, safe and informed communities.”

Wake County plans to expand its use of Everbridge’s Mass Notification System to include internal operations. Officials intend to use the Everbridge system to improve the county’s event coordination and management efforts.
