Syn-Apps Partners with Alertus Technologies to Enhance Organizational Notifications and Emergency Response Systems
MESA, Arizona, June 11, 2009 – Syn-Apps LLC, a leader in Unified Communications solutions, has announced a strategic partnership with Alertus Technologies, LLC, a leader in intelligible audible and visual facility alert appliances. The combined technologies integrate SA-Announce, Syn-Apps’ audio and text notification application, with Alertus Technologies’ Alert Beacons™ to provide organizations with a reliable and user friendly notification system.
“I am excited to announce the integration of Alertus into the Syn-Apps ecosystem,” says Ian Pitts, President of Syn-Apps LLC. “With Alertus and SA-Announce integrated, joint customers will have an expanded audible and visual alerting system that can address ADA compliance issues while streamlining the alerting process.”
The offering allows an organization to manage and deploy notifications through the easy-to-use SA-Announce interface. In seconds, safety leaders can deliver a clear, informative message to all or selected groups by activating Alert Beacons™; providing siren, strobes and large backlit text display. With this solution, an organization can now cover all major areas with audio, text and high powered strobe notification.
The collaboration will help solve the challenge of mass emergency notifications by offering point-to-multipoint data transmission that can be counted on when other wireless methods encounter delays or failures. Organizations that utilize the collaborative solution will also benefit by being ADA compliant.
SA-Announce, Syn-Apps’ 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, or they can be scheduled.
“The integration with Syn-Apps is a perfect example of why we developed a third party API,” said Blake Robertson, Alertus Technologies’ CTO. “Our partners are essential to providing a completely tailored solution which meets the unique requirements of every customer. Using the Syn-Apps SA-Announce interface, customers can now activate our suite of innovative Facility Alert products using any phone. We are very excited about the additional capabilities the integration offers.”
Alertus Alert Beacons™ provide real time communication via a FM subcarrier radio broadcast, nationwide data broadcast network, Ethernet/802.11, or a combination. For critical alerts, broadcast communication offers superior reliability because of the simultaneous point-to-multipoint transmission.
