One-way messaging is a thing of the past in today's mobile, on-the-go world.
Organizations need the ability to have a two-way conversation with mobile recipients and leverage these contacts to provide the eyes and ears on the scene as a situation develops. ContactBridge allows organizations to request information through polling, and allows users to submit on-the-scene reports, all through the convenience of their mobile phone.
The tools you need to plan for and manage communications and response during an emergency.
Secure push notifications
Chances are when an emergency occurs, some notification recipients will be offsite and traveling, sometimes to remote places with little or no network connections.
Well, we’re a very mobile workforce, with employees traveling all over the world to care for our patients, so making sure that everyone stays safe, no matter what part of the world they’re in, is very important. Reaching them across all devices and getting ahead of incidents is why we rely on critical communication services.
With ContactBridge, organizations can communicate with and geo-locate frontline resources, even under adverse network conditions like low bandwidth or connectivity.
Everbridge provides PSCU with a flexible, easy-to- use solution that can be quickly scaled depending on incident and event type. PSCU utilizes the system to keep employees safe and informed during weather related incidents, as well as routine events such as fire drills.
Ensure Personal Safety
With an increasingly mobile workforce, distributed teams and large campuses, it is very difficult to keep track of thousands of employees’ locations, schedules and travels.
How can employers proactively help protect the safety of their people in case of location-based critical incidents?
ContactBridge features the 3-in-1 Panic Button, available on iOS and Android, that converts a smartphone into a secret bodyguard when you’re not safe. Your contacts will be able to send a panic message to the security team with their current location. In addition to sending the contacts location, audio and video is also transmitted and shared.
When a situation occurs, organizations need the ability to have a two-way conversation with mobile recipients and use recipients to help create situational intelligence, giving them eyes and ears on the scene as a situation develops.
With Everbridge, we also have two-way communications capabilities; we can receive immediate feedback from our employee base, and communicate back out to them. We also have live monitoring and reporting capabilities to see how effective it is while we’re in the middle of an incident.
Encourage your network to send relevant photos, messages, and geographical details, even unsolicited. Gather polling responses from mobile devices as part of broadcasts.
The system can allow you to be notified in a very quick fashion, very precise and to the point. You have to remember that there’s multiple ways that you can be notified with this system. We can do it by a simple cellphone where you’d get a text message across. It can be done by your email. You can even come across your phone as a verbal message.
