Syn-Apps' SA-Announce is an enhanced Paging and Mass Notification platform providing secure and robust notification solutions to customers since 2001. When situations occur, customers rely on SA-Announce to quickly and efficiently notify personnel. It serves as a single-point of activation for customers to manage notifications across disparate systems.
Streamlining communication systems with SA-Announce allows customers more time to assess the impact of a situation, evaluate its risks, develop strategic action plans, and refine processes for future situations, rather than spending precious time managing notifications across disparate systems.
SA-Announce bundles the following use cases into a single solution:
Keep personnel informed throughout the entire situation using custom alerts delivered in real-time, pre-recorded, and scheduled intervals.
SA-Announce integrates with over 40 endpoints and devices:
Infinite Notification Groups - Prepare for every type of situation. Create dynamic groups used to assign specific endpoints to notification groups and alert personnel rapidly and accurately during an event
No Boundaries - Activate an unlimited number of live, pre-recorded, and scheduled notifications from the SA-Announce GUI, IP Phones, Syn-Apps' Paging Relay, Panic Buttons, Desktop Notification Client, or SA-Announce Dispatcher mobile app
Custom Templates - Dramatically reduce activation time and eliminate human error with unlimited notification groups and custom templates used to alert personnel during different scenarios.
Audio/Visual Communication - Deliver text, audio, and graphic notifications to supported devices.
Enhance the power of SA-Announce with Cloud Services to provide multi-modal communication and ensure targeted recipients receive critical alerts, regardless of their physical location. Choose from one of seven Cloud Services modules including mobile notifications to iOS & Android devices, Instant Messaging clients, SMS Messaging, Text to Speech, and more!
Ensure recipients don’t miss critical information with audio and visual pop-up alerts delivered right to Mac & PC clients. The Desktop Override feature prevents users from closing alerts until the alert is terminated; ensuring targeted users are kept prepared and informed.
Does your organization use a manual process to dispatch routine communication like daily announcements, bells, and regular drills? With SA-Announce Scheduler, your organization can efficiently manage alerts by scheduling single and recurring events. Create custom schedules to alert SA-Announce groups based on the type of event and hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly basis. Reduce management overhead costs and potential human error and help ensure you’re alerting the right people, at the right time, and the right location.

Léman Manhattan Preparatory School came to Syn-Apps in 2013 after evaluating notification solutions with their telephony reseller. Léman Manhattan’s Technology Manager, Julius Blakeny, explained their Lower School needed a unified notification solution to tie existing infrastructure together to meet their emergency communication and safety initiatives.
“We needed a [notification] solution that directly tied into our Call Manager to send notifications to IP phones, as well as Atlas IP speakers and clocks located throughout the building. Syn-Apps’ SA-Announce exceeded our requirements,” Blakeny explained.

We’ve being using SA-Announce for five years. We use it for several things, primarily, everyday paging to endpoints across multiple locations, such as all office phones and warehouses, emergency announcements, and most recently, for scheduled pages to signal breaks.
Joseph Wenninger, Information Sytems Director, City of Neenah
We are very happy with SA-Announce. We have SA-Announce tied into our panic button system so that if a panic button is pushed within City Hall, an alert is sent to all phones in City Hall, computers in Dispatch, and MDCs in all squad cars.
