Alertus Technologies, a leader in emergency mass notification solutions, today announced the release of new critical communication and alerting integrations with Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Google Chat. The integrations with dominant business communications platforms are now available to customers as part of Alertus’ 2021 Summer Software Release, which features additional integrations for advanced organizational alerting, security enhancements, and more.
Alertus’ integrations with Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Google Chat are designed to meet the demands of a dynamic and continuously evolving workforce, equipping employers with a powerful tool to deliver immediate and accessible alerts — for both emergencies and routine communications — to their employees’ chat channels from the Alertus System using customizable formatting, images, and action buttons.
“Business communication platforms have transformed workplace communications, offering enhanced accessibility, efficiency, and productivity for employers and employees. We’ve seen a global trend, greatly accelerated by COVID-19, away from a heavy volume of emails and toward more immediate forms of messaging which are harder to miss,” said Amanda Sassano, Senior Director of Commercial Sales and Partnerships at Alertus. “Ideal for organizations with remote or hybrid-remote work environments, Alertus’ new integrations with Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Google Chat allow employers to instantly reach employees, whether they are on-the-go or at their desks, with important and potentially life-saving information.”
Alertus’ integrations are available to any organization, whether they use a free or paid version of their business communications platform. Customers with access to Slack Enterprise Grid have the added benefit of creating a dedicated Slack channel that can be used by authorized users to communicate about an alert.
Every second matters during an emergency, and it’s critical to rapidly heighten organizational awareness to ensure safety. By unifying existing communication systems and devices — including business communications platforms, desktop computers, speakers, digital signage, and VoIP phones — and the entire emergency notification process under an integrated, multilayered mass notification system (MNS), organizations can activate alerts to each endpoint simultaneously by a push of a button.
Founded in 2002 out of the University of Maryland, Alertus engineers innovative emergency communications systems for colleges and universities, K-12 schools, corporations, medical centers, military bases, and government organizations. The Alertus System is trusted worldwide by thousands of organizations to keep their people safe during emergencies, including armed shooter incidents, severe weather-related events, terrorist threats, chemical spills, health outbreaks, and many more.
