BRIEF: Emergency alert creator Ping4 raises $4M

Feb 11, 2013 (Boston Herald - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Ping4 Inc. said today it has raised $4 million in capital, which the Nashua, N.H.-based company will use on product enhancements, intellectual property and sales and marketing.

The company is the creator of ping4alerts!, a free, hyperlocal emergency alerts communications platform for smartphones.

With ping4alerts!, emergency management authorities require no information about users who have downloaded the app. Authorities can reach them without knowing their email, street address or phone number, and it allows them to reach temporary visitors to their jurisdiction whom they know nothing about, the company said.


Ping4 added it has raised nearly $7 million in funding over the past two years.

"The future of disaster management is putting life-saving information in the hands of the public at the intersection of 'right here and right now,' " said Ping4 CEO Jim Bender. "Ping4 Inc.'s public safety and emergency management capabilities address next generation, real-time, emergency information services in an increasingly violent and hazardous world." ___ (c)2013 the Boston Herald Visit the Boston Herald at www.bostonherald.com Distributed by MCT Information Services
