Reaching Country-wide Populations in APAC
Everbridge software solutions support regions across Asia Pacific such as Australia, Singapore, and New Zealand, and by a number of the largest states in India — covering a total combined population of over 140 million Indian residents — including the states of Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Kerala, Odisha and Uttarakhand, where the local governments are leveraging the Everbridge platform to create and operationalize disaster response plans, mobilize resources, and track activities across multiple state departments.
The State of Odisha leveraged Everbridge’s Public Warning solution to send millions of SMS messages in local languages to residents before, during and after the landfall of Cyclone Fani, one of India’s strongest tropical cyclones in that area over the last 20 years. As a result, more than one million people were evacuated ahead of the storm, dramatically limiting the impact to human life.
The Everbridge Platform reaches over 700 million people around the world and currently supports the countrywide public warning system deployments in Australia, Greece, Iceland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Singapore and Sweden, among others.
