Syn-Apps Extends Line of Cloud Services with Common Alerting Protocol Solutions
Mesa, AZ (January 29 , 2016) — Syn-Apps LLC, a pioneer in mass notification software and paging solutions centered around unified communication, announced today the release of its CAP Activator and CAP Notifier, providing customers with the ability to receive and originate CAP-compliant notifications. Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) is an open communication standard defined by OASIS and accepted by organizations around the world. Its purpose is to improve warning effectiveness, detect emerging patterns, and exchange emergency and non-emergency communication in a consistent format that is accepted across various networks. Both Syn-Apps’ CAP Activator and CAP Notifier follow CAP version 1.2 specifications. Organizations can leverage Syn-Apps’ CAP Activator by subscribing to private or public CAP RSS or ATOM feeds and automatically receive information from sources, such as National Weather Service, U.S. Geological Survey, or National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. When CAP alerts matching pre-defined filters are received, CAP Activator triggers SA-Announce notification software and distributes notifications to devices, like IP phones, overhead speakers, mobile phones. With Syn-Apps’ CAP Notifier, organizations can create their own CAP service used to generate custom notifications for both internal and external subscribers. Using a standardized template to quickly dispatch alerts helps guarantee interoperability across SA-Announce endpoints and CAP-compliant systems and services, such as warning sirens, digital broadcasts, digital signage, and newswire feeds. “CAP provides a unique extension to our line of Cloud Services products. Our mission is to develop flexible solutions that help our customers streamline their communication processes and reduce communication barriers. Providing customers with CAP-compliant solution is ultimately a byproduct of Syn-Apps’ continuing initiatives to drive innovation through open communication and interoperability standards,” said Ian Pitts, President and CEO of Syn-Apps, LLC. CAP Activator and CAP Notifier are available to customers running SA-Announce 9.0.18. To learn more, contact Syn-Apps at 1-866-664-6071 or visit us on the web at www.syn-apps.com.
