BURLINGTON, Mass., August 2, 2021 — Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management (CEM), today announced its customized data-driven Situational Awareness and Risk Intelligence reporting focused on the ongoing International Games in Tokyo, to help safeguard traveling workers, attendees, supply chain and business operations in the vicinity of the Summer Games.
Integrated into its larger CEM platform, Everbridge risk intelligence data feeds empower organizations to help keep traveling workers and visitors safe and informed, and impacted business operations resilient throughout the Games and Para Games taking place from July 23 to August 8 and from August 24 to September 5, respectively. The Risk Intelligence feed reports on many types of disruptions, including weather, traffic, COVID-19, general health, and other localized threats.
Though the pandemic considerably scaled back the 2020 Summer International Games – blocking international spectators from attending and capping attendance at 10,000 people – some 80,000 organizers, support personnel, members of the press, and others are attending from overseas, and approximately 11,000 athletes are participating in the events, generating continued COVID-19 concerns. Among other disruptions, Everbridge’s Risk Intelligence feed monitors and reports daily case numbers and transmissions to protect its customers’ staff and operations impacted by the Games.
At Everbridge’s Spring 2021 global Road to Recovery leadership symposium – which featured keynote sessions by Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, former U.S. Secretary of State Dr. Madeleine K. Albright, and Virgin Group Founder Sir Richard Branson – Dimitri van Zantvliet Rozemeijer, the Chief Information Security Officer for the Dutch Olympic Committee, spoke about preparation for the upcoming Games: “We had to reinvent how to engage with sponsors on site and we developed new ideas to connect to the onsite venues and to connect with the athletes in the Olympic Village when they’re done with their sports.”
“With the world’s eyes on the 2020 Summer Games, we’ve mobilized our resources to bring the best data and management practices to bear to help organizations remain resilient by mitigating disruptions stemming from the events in Tokyo,” said Dr. John Maeda, chief experience officer at Everbridge. “Organizations need strong visibility into local events in order to anticipate potential impacts to people and operations. Everbridge provides the most sophisticated technology in the industry for achieving enterprise-wide resilience by harvesting and filtering rapidly evolving information to provide the earliest, most accurate, and most comprehensive real-time situational awareness available today.”
Supporting customers across 18 countries in APAC, Everbridge solutions are deployed by leading APAC-headquartered businesses with a strong focus on financial services, manufacturing, hospitality, state & local government, healthcare, and utilities, enabling a growing ecosystem of regional resiliency.
The 2020 International Summer Games demonstrate the value of Everbridge’s CEM offering on a global scale, continuing the history of Everbridge’s technology being used to keep people safe during some of the world’s largest gatherings and events, including the annual famed championship football games in the U.S. Public safety agencies across the U.S. and around the globe adopted the CEM platform to manage large crowds, most recently by the City of New York for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and New Year’s Eve in Times Square, along with the City of Pasadena for the Rose Parade. The technology came into play during last year’s Big Game in Atlanta, the Boston and Philadelphia Marathons, the Pride Parade in San Francisco and elsewhere, and Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Emergency management officials also regularly rely on it during severe weather situations, including Hurricane Dorian in Florida, the California wildfires, and Cyclone Fani in India.
