Bell Selects ERMS Emergency Notification System to Support Their Olympic Broadcasting Team

BellOakville, ON – January 15, 2014 | Bell Canada has selected ERMS Corporation to again support their 400+ team in Sochi, Russia during the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, as they did for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.

“Providing a broad range of live and on-demand content to smartphones, tablets, TV and computer screens for Canadian customers means the Bell team in Sochi will be very mobile and highly active throughout the Olympic venue, “ says Sylvain Rollin, President of ERMS Corporation. “With heightened security concerns, the ERMS Advantage notification system will provide Bell, and its team, with the reassurance and reliability they need to communicate anywhere, at any time, on any device,” he added.

EMRS Advantage will provide Bell with easy-to-use mission critical tools for real-time team communication. Advantage allows the large Bell Olympic coverage team to report their status on a regular basis which in turn enables Bell’s security team to quickly determine who may need assistance and focus their attention on employees who have not reported their status. In the event of an emergency, the emergency notification system can be used to rapidly notify Bell’s team to help ensure their safety, to poll recipients, or to automatically have recipients transferred to a conference call or support personnel. All while helping to speed recovery with real-time reporting and crisis management collaboration tools.

Bell used ERMS Advantage successfully during the 2012 Olympics for daily critical and non-emergency communication.
