Everbridge Wins 2021 Service to the Citizen™ Award for Industry-Leading Return to Work and Vaccine Distribution Solutions Deployed by State and Local Governments Across the U.S.

Critical Event Management (CEM) leader honored as a public servant for the success of its community engagement and vaccine distribution software to ensuring organizational resilience in response to the pandemic

BURLINGTON, Mass., August 23, 2021 — Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management (CEM), today announced the company won the 2021 Service to the CitizenTM: Champions of Change Award in the Industry category for the deployment of its Return to Work and vaccine distribution software solutions across the U.S. over the prior year.  The Service to the Citizen: Champions of Change Program recognizes public servants and organizations who demonstrate excellence in their delivery of services that impact the public’s lives. Award winners will be recognized at the Willard InterContinental in Washington, D.C. on September 22, 2021.

“Protecting the health and safety of the public is one of the core functions of government,” outlined the Service to the Citizen program overview. “There are heroes across the government that work tirelessly to provide the best services possible under sometimes difficult circumstances. They deserve to be recognized.”

In May 2020, Everbridge launched its ‘Return to Work’ software solutions to help governments and enterprises improve safety for citizens and employees as they integrate back to public spaces.  Everbridge’s industry-leading software platform enables organizations to manage the complexity of diverse city, state, and country pandemic guidelines as they evolve dynamically, and to support state and local governments and businesses with testing, automated polling of citizens, mobile wellness checks, and managing population density and access to office buildings based on vaccination status, all without compromising privacy.

In addition, the Everbridge CEM platform proved instrumental to the deployment of vaccine scheduling systems by government agencies.  Since launch, the Everbridge solution helped power vaccine distribution across dozens of countries in support of a leading intergovernmental organization, and was deployed by the state of West Virginia, Orange County in California, Indian River County and Sarasota County in Florida, St Clair County in Michigan, Muscogee (Creek) Nation in Oklahoma, among others, all while successfully serving public and private sector organizations.

Everbridge employees recognized as part of the award, and for their work on the COVID-19 Shield solutions, are Brian Toolan, Senior Director, Government Strategy; Bart Rys, Director of Business Solutions; Ajay Goel, Solution Architect; and Prashant Darisi, Vice President, Global Solutions.

“Everbridge remains committed to the complex challenges and best practices required to help solve this public health crisis faster – from efficient distribution of a vaccine to safely returning people to work and re-opening economies,” said David Meredith, CEO of Everbridge. “We are honored to receive a 2021 Service to the Citizen: Champions of Change Award, and I congratulate the Bridgers (Everbridge employees) named for their tireless commitment to our customers.”

Everbridge recently featured top government, business and healthcare experts at its global Road to Recovery leadership symposiums. Keynote speakers included Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, former U.S. Secretary of State Dr. Madeleine K. Albright, Virgin Group Founder Sir Richard Branson, co-founder of Apollo Global Management and co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers, Josh Harris, as well as doctors Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH); Scott Gottlieb, former FDA Commissioner; and Sanjay Gupta, renowned neurosurgeon and CNN Chief Medical Correspondent, to name a few.

The Service to the Citizen: Champions of Change award follows several other notable accolades for Everbridge including recently winning seven Comparably Awards and ranking a top-rated public cloud computing company to work for during COVID-19 by global investment firm Battery Ventures. Everbridge also received a 2021 Platinum Govies Government Security Award for its software solutions, the Department of Defense’s prestigious Above and Beyond Award for promoting supportive work environments for members of the U.S. National Guard and Reserve, Frost & Sullivan’s Critical Event Management (CEM) Technology Leadership Award, and certification as a Great Place to Work® for the second consecutive year by the Global Authority on Workplace Culture.
