VoiceGate Launches 'Campus Alert' Module at ITEXPO

By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributing Editor

VoiceGate unveiled its Campus Alert module this week at INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO East 2008. Campus Alert is an add-on to the company’s Emergency e-Response system that provides mass message notification and emergency planning.

 
The solution can now send alerts to every computer desktop and digital display within any network. This enables emergency planners to manage evacuations and disseminate emergency instructions faster than by calling or sending SMS messages in campus, educational and business settings.
 
Paul Perryman, president of the emergency response division at VoiceGate, said in a statement that the genesis of the idea behind the Campus Alert module came after analyzing the series of events that must take place when an emergency occurs within any building or campus. He explained that the first people needed to be alerted are campus police; then it is required to start the evacuation process by calling everyone else on the contact list.
 
Perryman said that by taking over the local area network, and instantly pushing audio and visual alerts to the displays or digital signage within any building or buildings, messages can be distributed faster, with less expense and more cost effectively than by using ASP notification services.
 
Built to police and military specifications, the Emergency e-Response module is an capable of supporting GIS-based automated notification campaigns. VoiceGate said the notification system is designed using open industry standards and is capable of delivering messages to thousands of people simultaneously, on multiple devices: phone, cell phone, answering machine, voice mail, fax, SMS, pager, any internet ready device—and now, "bulk" networked display notification.
 
VoiceGate believes that the GIS capability of the company’s HIPPA- and FERPA-compliant mass message delivery system, coupled with the new Campus Alert functionality, will enable security forces to visually instruct the residents of one area of campus to "shelter in place" while others may receive notices or instructions to better manage a planned, orderly evacuation.
