November 8, 2015 – Oakville, ON | ERMS is thrilled to annonced the launch of its new mobile App. ERMS-App-Icon---iOS.png
Thousands of stakeholders will now receive emergency alerts faster than ever through push notifications. At the first sign of an incident, instant messaging can make all the difference in mitigating serious consequences, and even avoiding a crisis altogether. At ERMS, our product development is always focused on saving lives through technology and our new Mobile App is our latest commitment to this vision. 

Available for iOS, Android and BlackBerry, ERMS Mobile requires activation at the organization level in order to be used. Please contact your ERMS Account Manager or send us an email at info@ermscorp.com.

With this first phase, the ERMS Mobile App redefines employer-based Emergency Mass Communication by giving more control to recipients on how they receive their notifications and manage their contact information. While System Administrators have complete control over which functions their stakeholders can use and data they may update, the user friendly interface and powerful features of this App can greatly lighten the data management burden for their Emergency Notification System, as well as alert individuals in a flash. 

So far, the App functionalities include:

  • Push Notification
  • Mailbox and Archive
  • Acklowledgement
  • Open Text Reply (when enabled by Admnistrator)
  • HotLine Global Introduction on HomePage
  • Easy access to HotLine Group Statuses
  • Update Contact Information in profile and ERMS Database
  • Define Device Order for receiving notifications
  • Integrated Help Text
In a later release, Location Services will be linked to Mapper thus enabling real-time location-based Emergency Mass Notification. Stay tuned!
