BURLINGTON, Mass. – July 21, 2020 – Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management (CEM), today announced the global expansion of its first-to-market partnership with Telarus, LLC., the largest technology services distributor (master agent) of business cloud services.

Everbridge has over 25 offices around the world including four sites that span these countries. Australia and New Zealand selected Everbridge’s Public Warning platform to power their nationwide population alerting capability, and Everbridge now serves countries in every major region of the world.
As part of the agreement, Telarus – with its network of over 4,000 technology brokers – will assist businesses in these additional global markets manage critical events, such as coronavirus, with the full suite of Everbridge capabilities, including its COVID-19 Shield and Return to Work software solutions and more. The Everbridge CEM platform automates and accelerates operational response to critical events like the coronavirus pandemic to keep people safe and businesses running efficiently.
“As the coronavirus pandemic and other crises continue to impact businesses globally, we see opportunities for Everbridge’s solution to support our partners’ clients in more markets worldwide,” said Amy Bailey, Vice President of Marketing, Telarus. “We believe Everbridge can play a vital role in protecting their people, supply chains, operations, and brands – especially for those companies seeking an automated approach to mitigating the impact of the pandemic on their business, and facilitating a safer return to work and other public places.”
Over 5,000 businesses, governments, and healthcare organizations currently rely on Everbridge’s CEM Platform to assess threats, monitor the wellbeing of their workforces, rapidly communicate warnings, protect supply chains, and accelerate the analysis of their operational response.

We built Everbridge for times like these.”
