BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everbridge, a global enterprise software company that provides applications which automate the delivery of critical information to help keep people safe and businesses running, and Geofeedia, a leader in real-time location-based intelligence, today announced a strategic partnership to leverage intelligence information for incident response and communications. The integration enables organizations to use Geofeedia to analyze social media conversations and identify location-specific incidents in real-time – and then activate an Everbridge incident template and workflow to ensure critical messages are delivered to the right employees, residents and stakeholders at the right time.
The Geofeedia platform extends the value of social media by enabling organizations to predict, analyze and act based on real-time conversations, reports and check-ins. Through this new integration, users can anticipate and monitor emergencies and other critical events while simultaneously triggering customized alerts within the Everbridge Incident Communications solution. Multiple contact methods including email, SMS or voice, combined with preconfigured incident communication rules, escalations and groups, enable users to kickoff incident workflows and confirm their receipt.
“Our partnership with Geofeedia allows us to provide organizations with a new way to harness social media to help keep individuals safe and informed during location-specific incidents,” said Imad Mouline, CTO of Everbridge. “We look forward to partnering with Geofeedia to strengthen our ability to deliver contextual communications and incident response capabilities to clients across all industries and geographies.”
Everbridge and Geofeedia will highlight the integration through an informational webinar on Tuesday, July 12th at 2:00 PM (EDT)/11:00 AM (PDT). Please register here: http://go.everbridge.com/leveraging-real-time-location-based-intelligence.html?trk=geofeedia_pr.
