Desktop Alert's ongoing commitment to improve its mass notification platform resulted in a new feature that has emergency operators send a recorded phone message to targeted recipients to alert them during a crisis.
This new feature uses enhanced technology, unique in the mass notification industry, as the phone call allows numerous endpoints to be activated simultaneously, according to company officials.
"Any authorized operator of the Desktop Alert Mass Notification System can contact one, some or thousands of end-users and activate numerous alerting endpoints in a less than one minute with one simple phone call," said Howard Ryan, chief research and development at Desktop Alert, Inc.
The modus operandi involved is reportedly simple and very effective. Authorized emergency operators of the Desktop Alert System are provided with a special telephone number for alert activation. When the user dials the designated Desktop Alert access phone number, a prompt for the PIN code appears. When this is furnished, the user is presented with the option to choose scenario for activation.
All targeted recipients are quickly alerted by activating various endpoints that includes computers, speaker systems, SMS, e-mail and even public address systems. The emergency message can be heard by all those within the listening range of the computer or the public address system.
More importantly, the Desktop Alert System can be activated even when the user is away from the base station. A remote landline or a cell phone will do the job. As part of the service, the company provides standard numbers as well as toll free numbers and local phone numbers that can be activated in over 100 countries.
Worldwide U.S. Military organizations are using the Desktop Alert System mass notification platform daily for their organizations emergency communication requirements.
