Emergency Notification & Mass Communication - News and Events

GIS Mapping Functionality Enhances the ERMS Emergency Notification and Crisis Management Solution

Oakville, ON - ERMS has announced the addition of GIS mapping capability which allows public and private sector organizations to send geographically targeted communications to employees, citizens and key stakeholders.

This added functionality enables the dissemination of critical information to hundreds of thousands of stakeholders - quickly and efficiently. Customers can utilize the service for emergency purposes and also for daily notifications when time-sensitive information needs to be communicated quickly and when confirmation of receipt is required. The use of multiple communications methods - including wired and wireless phones, PDA's, email, pagers, SMS and fax - ensures notifications are delivered reliably, through all available channels.

The added functionality of Mapper puts ERMS on the leading edge in the crisis management and communications arena with the most complete integrated offering in the Canadian marketplace.

  • Increase public awareness of hazards, potential threats and other public safety information
  • Offer enhanced customer service by keeping customers informed of service interruptions
