Company Spotlight: Amerilert Communications

In 2004, a few technologies existed to offer notification services.  However, these services did not address the needs of a mobile society.  Previous systems were difficult to install and operate.  They were also fairly expensive.  Those early systems required additional hardware and software purchases to make the notifications work.  Those systems also required the assistance of IT staff within the organization to “integrate” it into existing systems.  Having so many parts and processes also made these services difficult to use.  Many potential customers were intimidated by all of these obstacles to success.

Today’s society is highly mobile and people spend most of their day in transit. How will your community read an email in time of emergencies? Email is not enough. How will people get a phone call in their house when they are out and about? Phone dialers are not enough.  It is currently estimated that nearly 91% of American's are cell phone carriers, this makes text messaging a very successful means of communication during an emergency.

The Amerilert service is specifically designed for large group communication. It is a 100% web-based system that enables administrators to instantly send messages to their subscribers for a fraction of the cost and complexity of existing notification services. There is no software to install and no hardware to buy. An organization can setup a secure notification system in minutes to send routine, urgent or emergency alerts to their entire community.

Amerilert can be used as an emergency notification system.  Keep your citizens informed and out of harm’s way. Whether you need to communicate weather warnings, road closures, Amber Alerts, or other emergencies.  Notifications can be sent out in a wide array of formats, to include text messages, desktop pop-ups, and email.

Amerilert First Responder is the leading text messaging-based dispatch and paging system for Fire Departments, Rescue Squads, and EMS.  This highly reliable service enables you and your crew to receive computer aided dispatches on a standard cell phone.  You can configure Amerilert First Responder to automatically dispatch pages from the 911 center or dispatch center to standard cell phones and pagers of first responders.  Fire station or rescue squad can dispatch their own messages from the Amerilert interface to the desired groups.  The system can be configured to dispatch alerts to everyone or to specific groups on an alert-by-alert basis.

Amerilert does live demonstrations to show the ease of use and cost-effectiveness of their alert programs.  You can request a free demonstration via their website.
