Protect Visitors with Easy Emergency Notification Opt-In

Visitor Notification from InformaCast

It’s important to protect the people that come to your facility everyday, but what if you could extend those security solutions to cover visitors?

Emergency notification for visitors from InformaCast allows administrators to create campaigns for individuals temporarily visiting their facilities, even if they do not have the InformaCast Mobile app. Visitors can register to receive notifications using a web browser or by texting a hashtag to a phone number (e.g. text #visitoralerts to XXX-XXX-XXXX). This makes it easy for people to sign up and stay informed while they’re visiting.

Apply to Any Industry

Regardless of what field you work in, InformaCast visitor notification is a powerful tool to enhance safety. It can be deployed across a variety of environments to protect and inform those who otherwise might not have access to critical information.

NEWS: InformaCast Mobile Adds Location-Based Emergency Notifications

Select GPS-based areas of interest and boundary triggers

Singlewire Software, a leading mass notification service provider, releases location-based emergency notifications for InformaCast Mobile. The mobile app and web interface will now offer users the ability to select areas of interest and establish notification perimeters for designated locations.

“InformaCast Mobile continues to provide users with the latest innovations for emergency notification,” said Tim Green, vice president of software development for Singlewire Software. “These new features provide our users with a greater ability to monitor and share critical information.”

InformaCast Mobile users can select up to three static addresses. If an alert is sent to an area of interest that encompasses one or more of those addresses, the user will receive the alert.

Boundary triggers send notifications to users who have entered or left a particular area. In addition, InformaCast Mobile can send messages to anyone using the app within that area.

The new Collaboration Group feature for InformaCast Mobile offers users the ability to trigger automatic conference calls to key personnel for instant collaboration during a crisis.

Create Groups for the Right People

Inside the updated InformaCast Mobile interface, current users will find a new option for “Collaboration Groups.” This will give users the option to initiate a conference call by sending a broadcast to designated distribution lists and individual users.
