Columbia College uses InformaCast for sending campus-wide mass notifications and overhead pages when the school needs to close their campus.
Singlewire Software, developer of innovative voice applications centered around secure, fast, and reliable mass notification, emergency communication, and overhead paging, today announced the release and publication of the case study, “Columbia College: Quick, Reliable, and Efficient Campus-wide Notification.”
The case study features Columbia College, part of the Yosemite Community College District in Sonora, California. Columbia College uses Singlewire InformaCast, along with a network of 300 IP phones deployed across their campus, to send mass notification messages when they need to close the campus for safety during snow storms or power outages.
Brad Parkel, director of marketing at Singlewire Software comments, “Columbia College uses InformaCast in a very innovative way. They have designed their network in a way that allows notification to be sent to classrooms after the loss of power.”
InformaCast enables campus administrators at Columbia College to send notifications to all the phones on campus with a single message. Simultaneously, they can also send that same message to buildings on campus that have overhead paging speakers. In addition, InformaCast allows users to send messages to IP phones as well as many other endpoints, including IP speakers, email addresses, websites (like Twitter and Facebook), and SMS messages.
Singlewire InformaCast is a full-featured, network-based, mass notification, emergency communication, and overhead paging system that allows users to simultaneously send an audio and/or text message to a variety of endpoints including IP speakers, Cisco IP phones, overhead paging systems, computer desktops, digital signage, SMS text, social media sites, and more. Singlewire InformaCast can be purchased through registered partners of Singlewire Software.
