Verizon using RED ALERT

“We've increased our broadcast capacity 700% in a little under a year by moving to RED ALERT. Our old methods of network outage alerting was corporate voicemail and text paging using separate systems, separate databases, separate everything. Not exactly the most efficient way to get broadcasts out but we worked with tools that we had. In integrating RED ALERT into our notification process, it consolidated every method of alerting in one box … voice, text and e-mail … with redundant power supplies, disk drives, etc. We currently have close to 3000 recipients and continue adding more and more each day. As an example of how RED ALERT has helped our network outage notification process, in August of 2005 we broadcast 158 alerts at an average of approximately 45+ minutes per each alert. In August of 2007 we broadcast 939 alerts at an average of approximately 10 minutes or less per each alert. Quite impressive numbers!”

Emergency Notification Expanded Multilingual Capabilities from AMTELCO’s RED ALERT System.

AMTELCO’s 1Call Division is pleased to announce that the RED ALERT Emergency and Event Notification System now features greatly expanded multilingual capabilities, making it possible to efficiently notify a group of people regardless of language or dialect. These expanded multilingual capabilities feature 36 distinct languages and dialects that are compatible with the RED ALERT System. This list entails such widely spoken languages as Spanish, Mandarin, and French as well as the numerous dialects they are spoken in. This allows for use of the RED ALERT System in areas of the world that were previously not possible. By drastically expanding the number of languages from solely English, the RED ALERT System’s incredible effectiveness can be utilized by businesses throughout the world.

“With the expanded multilingual capabilities, RED ALERT can overcome language barriers to effectively inform a group of people about an emergency. These capabilities are a direct result of the ever-expanding global market. By drastically expanding our language capabilities for the RED ALERT System, AMTELCO hopes to further grow as a world leader in the communications industry,” stated AMTELCO President Tom Curtin.

Besides the ability to issue multilingual mass alerts via text-based messages (SMS text message, fax, email, and pager), this feature utilizes Text-to-Speech technology to assist with the notification process. Any message an administrator wishes to issue (in any of the 36 provided languages) can now be entered as text and converted into an audible phone message. This combination of mass notification and multilingualism makes RED ALERT the ideal choice for mass notification systems in any part of the world.

For more information and the complete list of languages and dialects offered by the RED ALERT System, call (800)380-7345, (608)838-4194, or e-mail redalert@amtelco.com.

Emergency Notification Software for every hospital emergency code

Hospital emergency codes are used by hospitals to get the proper personnel to handle a particular emergency or event.

Emergency medical codes are normally defined by color, number or event type. Streamlining the responder contacting procedure can be extremely valuable. An automated notification system can be a useful tool in automating the manual “calling tree” task. Calling and paging individual doctors, nurses and responders can take minutes while an automated notification system like Amtelco’s RED ALERT can accomplish the same task in seconds. RED ALERT also has the ability to use more recent applications and technology like SMS (text messaging), WIFI devices and ESRI mapping to get code call responders to the correct place rapidly.
