It’s one thing to create mass notification software that stands up to any type of emergency. It’s another to stay one step ahead of evolving technologies and industry trends. But it is something else entirely to do both without losing touch with what the end-user needs and wants.

At ERMS, we pride ourselves on our ability to deliver enterprise-class, scalable, and relevant solutions while still working closely with our customers. ERMS was founded in 2002, and launched the Advantage emergency mass notification system in 2005 with American Express as their first customer (and they're still our customer today). 

What's the ERMS Advantage difference?  First-class responsiveness combined with enterprise-class capabilities.
