Remembering September 11th

The morning after September 11, 2001, Americans woke up in a nation forever changed from the one we’d known before. Children were without parents. Husbands were without wives. An empty hole punctured the New York City skyline. The sense of security that we’d taken for granted for so long had vanished like smoke from our collective consciousness.

In the wake of the September 11th attacks, a U.S. government agency made a request for a mass notification system from Berbee Information Networks, which would later become Singlewire Software. Our InformaCast system is the result of that request.

At Singlewire, we try to remember the reason behind our work. Every day we strive to offer solutions that will help keep people safe in any kind of emergency.

On this eleventh anniversary of the September 11th attacks, we continue to remember those whose lives were lost and those whose lives were changed forever on that fateful day.

Berbee to Singlewire - Over Ten Years of Software Development with InformaCast

Eleven years ago, a group of software engineers at a Berbee Information Networks created an application designed to send notifications on Cisco IP phones. Originally called the Emergency Broadcast System or EBS, it soon would become known as InformaCast.

For many years, customers often referred to InformaCast as “The Berbee” when talking about their notification needs. 3,000 customers later, we’re still working on improving and enhancing the InformaCast platform under the new company name of Singlewire Software.

We recently caught up with several Singlewire staff members that were instrumental in the development of the software in those early days with Berbee to record this short video.
