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.

Proactive Approach
In an industry where getting there first matters, ERMS invests in research and development to stay on top of emerging technology and industry trends. We are always looking to deliver enhancements to our solutions—sometimes before our customers are aware of the need. We are in this for the long haul.

Collaborative Relationships
Our highly-trained team works with our customers to understand their goals and guide them through a comprehensive (custom and live) implementation and training process. And we continue to work collaboratively with our customers on an ongoing basis to ensure the Advantage emergency notification system is configured to suit their unique needs. If a customer requests added functionality, we do our best to accommodate. No red tape or market analysis. In fact, over 80% of our product development road map comes directly from customer input.

Comprehensive Solutions
In a crisis, having one unified system that can handle all outgoing and incoming automated notifications simultaneously is essential. At ERMS, we focus on what we do best: emergency mass notification software. It is a cohesive solution…not a piece of one. No plug-ins, add-ons or extras. It's also adaptable and flexible with the industry's most comprehensive API.  That means you can configure it to suit your exact needs, and easily integrate it with other 3rd party complementary alerting technology–or with your existing database software.
