The Salvation Army Deploys AlertMedia Emergency Notification System

AUSTIN, Texas--()--AlertMedia, the fastest-growing emergency communications software provider in the world, today announced that The Salvation Army, an international organization that provides a broad array of social services, deployed AlertMedia’s notification technology to enhance and improve critical communications at its Southern Territory (USA) headquarters.

AlertMedia has modernized emergency communications for enterprise organizations by delivering an easy-to-use software platform that combines multi-channel, two-way messaging and 24/7 monitoring services to keep people safe and informed. AlertMedia enables organizations to interact with their audience from any mobile device, consolidating unlimited communication channels – such as voice, text, native apps, e-mail, social media, and Slack – into one simple user experience. Whether they have an audience of 50 or 50,000 people, organizations turn to AlertMedia when they need a reliable, quick, and simple solution to keep everyone connected during critical situations.

The Salvation Army is initially using the AlertMedia platform to communicate with remote and onsite employees and officers at its USA Southern Territory Headquarters about severe weather, system and power outages, and other time-sensitive critical situations.

“When disaster hits, the Salvation Army springs into action to help those in need. We have a challenging building design and layout in our Southern Territory HQ which can make communications difficult. Broadcasting information via an intercom to employees across several buildings wasn’t effective and we frequently have employees and officers who are traveling. In AlertMedia we found a system that can quickly and easily alert people about severe weather well before they get on the road to come to work, as well as important communications that need to be delivered while they are on or offsite,” said Rod Parks, Deputy CIO & Territorial Senior IT Director, USA Southern Territory, The Salvation Army. “We carefully evaluated the AlertMedia emergency notification system and it met all of our criteria. In particular, its ease of use and set-up were key factors for us. From set-up to implementation we have been extremely pleased.”

Keeping People Safe, Informed, and Connected

AlertMedia enables organizations to send and receive unlimited messages with their audience via any and all channels, including custom channels that can be easily integrated using the AlertMedia API. With innovative technology and a new approach to emergency communication, AlertMedia has taken a leadership position in the market. Hundreds of enterprise customers in 80+ countries across all industries are already using the AlertMedia platform to protect their organizations, automate operations, and mitigate loss.

“The Salvation Army is recognized for its ability to quickly help communities when disaster strikes. As an emergency communications technology provider, we are honored they chose us to help them communicate during these critical situations,” said Brian Cruver, CEO of AlertMedia. “The AlertMedia platform enables The Salvation Army to easily and quickly connect and communicate with its Southern Territory Headquarters team with just a few clicks on their AlertMedia dashboard or just a few taps on their AlertMedia app on their smartphone.”
