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.
Leave no chance for life-saving information to go unnoticed
DeskAlerts is a mutichannel emergency messaging system, that can be used in conjunction with tornado warning sirens, disaster alarms, and the alert color codes used by hospitals. It delivers information to different kinds of corporate devices simultaneously even if internet and phone are down.
DeskAlerts emergency notifications provide a cost-effective method for real-time messaging that can be used by any organization.
