Easy Resident Opt-In

Build a Comprehensive Resident Database Without Relying on Landlines.

Emergency Managers need to increase opt-ins to be able to reach all residents–especially during a public safety threat. Community Engagement® features multiple opt-in methods to provide residents, visitors, employees and other community members with the ability to easily sign-up for alerts.

Improving Event Management

City of Philadelphia Case Study

“Pope Francis’ historic visit to Philadelphia, the Community Engagement® platform was successful in helping us obtain many resident and visitor opt-ins in a very short amount of time. We were able to generate over 11k opt-in’s in just a few days—by comparison, it took almost 8 years for us to amass 15k Twitter followers! Clearly, this is a powerful and highly visible tool that helps us reach citizens quickly and effectively.”

Improving Employee Protection and Life Safety

Pratt & Whitney Case Study

“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.”
