AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AlertMedia, a leader in the emergency communication software industry, today announced the launch of its SafeSignal technology. Combined with AlertMedia’s 24-hour Monitoring Center, SafeSignal provides a new level of safety and security for people working in high-risk situations around the world.
AlertMedia recently completed an initial rollout of SafeSignal across the state of Texas, where several state and local agencies are using the service to give their thousands of employees a crucial level of protection and peace of mind. With the launch announcement, AlertMedia will begin offering SafeSignal throughout the United States, as well as internationally in the more than 80 countries where AlertMedia already has customers.
“Our technology is redefining safety for organizations with people in the field, specifically those who often find themselves working or traveling in dangerous locations or conditions. Social service workers, home healthcare workers, realtors – people in these professions are breathing an enormous sigh of relief when we put SafeSignal in their hands,” said Brian Cruver, founder and CEO of AlertMedia. “They can now do their jobs with confidence, knowing that our monitoring team and law enforcement is essentially by their side, making sure they are safe.”
The patented, zero-button SafeSignal solution works in conjunction with a tether that plugs into any iOS or Android smartphone. Pulling the brightly colored tether activates an audible alarm while sending a distress signal, along with critical details on the situation, to the AlertMedia Monitoring Center. AlertMedia immediately responds according to a custom action plan established with the employer, which typically includes dispatching law enforcement to the user’s precise location.
“SafeSignal is groundbreaking technology in the emergency communication industry, which allows us to accompany people as they encounter dangerous situations,” says Heather Deason, a former 911 Operations Specialist, and now the Director of AlertMedia’s Monitoring Center. “Since the initial rollout, we have already coordinated with law enforcement to assist with several hundred incidents.”
As the fastest-growing mass communication and emergency notification software provider in the world, AlertMedia helps organizations securely and effectively monitor threats, streamline notifications, and recover from incidents. The company’s fully integrated, cloud-based platform delivers communication tools that can be accessed from anywhere, at any time, using any device. Customers in telecom, healthcare, transportation, energy, manufacturing, government, and education are using the AlertMedia platform to protect their organizations, automate operations, and mitigate loss.
