Everbridge Wins Innovation of the Year in Pink Elephant’s IT Excellence Awards
IT Alerting™ Solution Recognized for its Automated Incident Response Capabilities
ORLANDO, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management and incident response solutions, today announced that its IT Alerting™ solution was selected as the silver winner in Pink Elephant’s 2017 IT Excellence Awards for Innovation of the Year. The IT Excellence Awards honor individual and corporate commitment to IT excellence and ITSM best practices. In case of major IT incidents such as cyber-attacks, application or infrastructure failures, most organizations still rely on manual response processes. They use call trees and send emails to entire teams, struggling to quickly engage the right personnel and notify impacted business users. This leads to inefficiency and latency in their ability to respond to and resolve incidents in a timely manner. Everbridge’s IT Alerting provides an enterprise closed-loop incident response automation solution backed up by multiple patented technologies, enabling service management professionals to efficiently and consistently alert and notify the right people, as well as communicate and collaborate with key stakeholders during an IT incident. “It’s an honor to be recognized for Pink Elephant’s 2017 IT Excellence Award for Innovation of the Year,” said Vincent Geffray, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Everbridge. “I’m very proud of the Everbridge product team, whose number one obsession has always been client satisfaction. All of the innovations we’ve released this past year are the result of the hard work and dedication of an entire team. This award demonstrates that we’re listening to IT professionals, that we understand their challenges and that we deliver the very capabilities they really need to make their job easier.” The IT Alerting solution helps resolve incidents faster and minimize the business impacts of unplanned downtime, as well as the impact on IT teams themselves. With its latest release, Everbridge’s IT Alerting provides Smart Analytics and ChatOps integrations and additional capabilities which accelerate the recovery of failed services through improved communication, one-click collaboration and decision-analytics that result in more efficient workflow-based processes. “The Everbridge team will continue leading the way and offering innovative solutions to help organizations minimize the impact of critical IT events on the IT teams and on the business,” Geffray added.
