Oakville, ON – August 7, 2012 | ERMS Corporation, provider of Advantage — a comprehensive and flexible enterprise-class emergency notification system, announced the ERMS Advantage system is now seamlessly integrated with Alertus Technologies, LLC.Alertus

When there's a crisis, organizations need every channel available to them to ensure their messages are sent, received, and understood. Now, with Alertus integration, our customers can deploy their single notification campaign to all channels available simultaneously – including beacons, loud and long-range speakers, sirens, digital signage, and desktop computer interruption notification.

“Stakeholders can easily be distracted and respond uniquely to each type of notification. That’s why different communication channels are essential to ensure every stakeholder is reached,” says Jennifer Mitchell, VP Service Delivery, ERMS. “Additionally important, is the ability to ensure the message isn’t ignored. Alertus desktop notification is almost impossible to miss; recipients must acknowledge alerts before they can close the message that has overridden their existing computer screen,” she added.

Additionally, ERMS allows Administrators and Agents to customize the message, when required, for each channel or device, all from within the same message creation screen. This ensures that messages sent, whether via phone recipient, character limited SMS, or Desktop Alert, are appropriate for the channel or device. Interruption Alert

“Our customers consistently ask for single point of activation for easy, consistent emergency messaging through all modes. The ERMS integration with Alertus delivers just that.” says Ryan Ockuly, Partner Relationship Manager, Alertus. “When an emergency occurs, each second counts,” he added.
