BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ:EVBG), a global software company that provides critical communications and enterprise safety applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, today unveiled the latest release of its enterprise platform and suite of applications. Everbridge’s Fall 2016 Release improves the way that communities and corporations of all sizes can assess threats, locate key people, automate processes and communicate effectively. The new release features enhancements to the core Everbridge platform for critical event management, as well as improved workflow automation, new integrations and mobile collaboration solution features.
Advancing Global Security and Emergency Preparedness
The Everbridge Fall 2016 Product Release is designed to meet the evolving needs of security, risk and emergency management professionals that rely on Everbridge to reduce the time it takes to respond to critical events and help ensure operational resiliency. Built on the secure, reliable Everbridge platform, additional application improvements include:
- International SOS Integration and Expected Locations: Keeping employees safe is more challenging than ever given an increasing mobile workforce. Travel itineraries from Everbridge partner International SOS are now available in the Safety Connection solution as a source of “expected” location data for travelling employees and executives. People can be located and notifications can be sent based upon these dynamic locations rather than just on static home or office addresses.
- Audio Bulletin Board: Now organizations can post an audio message that employees and residents can retrieve at their convenience using an Everbridge-provided phone number. Organizations can also use Audio Bulletin Board to update individuals who are not in an existing contact database (e.g. visitors and contractors).
Empowering Resiliency and Incident Coordination for Business
Continuity and IT Teams:
The new release is designed to improve incident response times and crisis management processes by offering new Smart Conference functionality, increased interoperability with IT Service Management (ITSM) and other systems, on-call schedule upgrades and additional enhancements, including:
- Smart Conference: Quickly launch 1-click access to conference bridges to resolve IT incidents based on intelligent recognition of participants, without having to enter an access code. Teams can easily manage the conference participants, track who attended and for how long and generate reports via the new Live Conference Dashboard.
- ServiceNow Connector for Schedules: Everbridge’s IT Alerting application now integrates with ServiceNow Scheduling to automatically escalate IT incidents and manage escalation procedures while seamlessly leveraging schedules stored in ServiceNow.
- On-Call Scheduling: Business continuity, clinical care teams and IT users can now identify on-call schedules through a monthly view, while also having the ability to copy calendars, publish and un-publish schedules, share calendars to the Everbridge Member Portal and utilize new shift management options via APIs.
- HipaaBridge and SecureBridge: Both apps now offer enhanced video and audio quality to securely and reliably communicate with colleagues in low bandwidth situations, such as underground facilities, as well as video-to-audio failover and auto reconnect.
“Everbridge’s 2016 Fall Release continues our commitment to making our products easier to use, more integrated with other important systems and more flexible in how people can access information,” said Claudia Dent, SVP of Product Management, Everbridge. “These new features are all aimed at improving the ways that global security, IT and emergency management teams can locate people, mobilize resources and automate processes during critical events in which minutes matter.”
