Chandler Gilbert Community College First Customer to Leverage Combined System for Campus Safety
Mesa, Arizona – February 26, 2009 – Syn-Apps LLC, a leader in custom Unified Communications application development, and leading global mass notification system provider, 3n Global (www.3nonline.com), today announced a partnership that provides an integrated service through SA-Announce, Syn-Apps’ audio and text notification platform, and the 3n InstaCom™ emergency notification system. The companies also announced that Chandler Gilbert Community College is implementing the joint solution.
“We are pleased to offer this enhanced solution, giving users even more capabilities to effectively monitor and respond in emergency situations,” said Ian Pitts, President and CEO, Syn-Apps. “By coupling 3n’s capabilities and our SA-Announce platform, organizations will have easy access to multiple systems and methodologies. Overall, allowing for more effective communications, with less time and cost incurred for training.”
The new offering allows customers to manage and deploy mass communications through one easy-to-use control panel, seamlessly activating various messaging platforms, including message boards, intercoms, IP phones, cellular devices and more. Chandler Gilbert Community College is implementing the solution to help manage the learning curve for users adapting to multiple activation points for non integrated emergency communication solutions. “We needed systems that could leverage a common interface to activate multiple emergency systems and reduce the overhead for managing each independently.” said Victor Navarro, Director of Information Technology at Chandler Gilbert Community College. “The offering from Syn-Apps and 3n made existing communications methods easier to manage, while providing us new modes of communication in a single package.”
The SA-Announce Notification System is a feature-rich notification tool that works with Cisco Unified Communications Manager to provide text and audio notifications across organizations. The notifications can be real-time, such as emergency alerts and live audio notifications (i.e. paging /intercom), or they can be scheduled.
The 3n InstaCom solution enables organizations to communicate with thousands of people—across multiple communication devices including mobile phones, landlines, BlackBerry® smartphones/wireless PDAs, email, and instant messaging—in minutes.
