What does an emergency alert system do?

When you need to communicate vital information with your employees quickly to keep them safe, you need an effective emergency messaging system.

DeskAlerts is an emergency notification system for business that enables you to send urgent information to your employees in an emergency or disaster situation. If alarms start ringing because of a threat, the people in your organization will be notified promptly via emergency alerts that will provide instructions about what steps to take to be safe.

The DeskAlerts mass alert system gives you control over your alert notifications. You control the type of alert you send as well as how often you send it and how it looks. You can send emergency alerts to your entire workforce, or just those employees who are affected: for example, your office in one particular city, staff who work on a particular floor of an office building.

You can customize the emergency notification’s appearance and set the size and position of where the message will display on users’ screens. You can even send as a full-screen alert, which is recommended to grab attention during a crisis.

Shortcuts can be configured to send an emergency ticker followed by either a long or short message. (At this stage desktop shortcuts are only available for Windows users, and the emergency alert app is available for Android and iOS).

Other channels can be used to send emergency alerts including email or an SMS emergency notification software system. DeskAlerts can also provide an app for sending emergency broadcast system alerts to phones and other mobile devices.
