Program to promote open interoperability and remove unnecessary IP royalty fees for manufacturers
Mesa, AZ (November 10, 2015) – Syn-Apps LLC, a pioneer in mass notification (MNS), business enabled communication processes (BECP), and paging solutions centered around unified communications, today unveiled its Certified Endpoint Program, which is designed to make interoperability more readily accessible to manufacturers, customers, and channel resellers alike by creating new network-enabled notification endpoints leveraging Syn-Apps’ royalty-free, open API.
“The Certified Endpoint Program offers the mass notification community a unique opportunity to harness its collaborative passion, intelligence, and ingenuity to ensure our joint customers are presented with hardware options that solve their mass notification needs,” said Ian Pitts, Chief Executive Officer of Syn-Apps. “This unprecedented program encourages innovation in mass notification systems by significantly reducing the legal and financial obstacles manufacturers might otherwise face while embracing interoperability for IoT devices.”
The Certified Endpoint Program is expected to enable individuals and organizations to efficiently impact the mass notification market. “By removing the technology and financial obstacles, manufacturers are more likely to innovate at an accelerated rate, solving real communication challenges seen across many market segments, such as K-12, higher education, retail, healthcare, and enterprise customers,” Pitts concluded.
Syn-Apps’ SA-Announce notification software has enjoyed adoption in many industries and market segments around the world since 2001. This program helps to facilitate innovation and growth between Syn-Apps and IoT hardware manufacturers, provides mutual customers with freedom of choice, while furthering SA-Announce’s global footprint.
IoT manufacturers participate in the program by integrating Syn-Apps’ API and testing their hardware for interoperability with SA-Announce. Use of the API is free of charge to IoT endpoint manufacturers and carries a small fee for mass notification providers that integrate Syn-Apps’ API into their own solutions, allowing them to leverage the growing ecosystem of Syn-Apps’ certified IoT devices.
