Communication is the fundamental building block for communities, businesses and societies as a whole. This need for communication becomes more profound in the case of a crisis because this is the only way to save money, business and in some cases, even lives. For this reason, there are many communications systems that cover different areas of crisis communication.
The latest such software is the situational intelligence network created by a company called Everbridge. This software is targeted for organizations, designed to help them automate communications between different branches of the same company or across different companies during an emergency. This platform can also be used to send critical messages to the concerned parties.
This network offers other advantages as well. Firstly, it connects both private and public organizations, so communication can flow from one organization to virtually any other organization within the same network. Another benefit is that it allows users to send and receive any form of situational intelligence to help companies to improve their response time in an emergency. Furthermore, it helps companies to enhance their efficiency and to mitigate the losses that occur due to unforeseen emergencies. Lastly, organizations have the choice to send messages to their stakeholders using this platform. These messages can not only be clear and quick, but at the same time, companies can prevent the spread of false information. All these factors improve communications enormously and help to reach out to more individuals in an efficient manner.
A good example of such a situation is when a school has to notify other areas of business, such as hospitals or local organizations, of an emergency that may impact them. With this system, such messages can be sent out within minutes through the Everbridge Network. Such a system can be critical in life threatening situations and this is why more and more organizations are looking to implement it.
