Desktop Alert is a world class provider of Mass Notifications technology offering colleges, universities and other academic institutions a powerful alert solution called “Campus Alerts”
Whether it was responding to a fire-drill or reacting to a bomb scare, many universities and schools have been gravely disappointed at the response times and reactions of their staff and students during an emergency. The good news is that the effective placement of one, time-sensitive notification, can dramatically improve the rapid response by faculty and student populations alike – if you can reach them.
With the Campus Alerts system in place your school has a unified emergency alert system with a centralized distribution console capable of targeting faculty, alumni, staff, students and visitors simultaneously, informing them of the necessary steps to take in the event of an emergency.
Studies show that over 75% of college students have cell phones and the Campus Alerts system has built-in functionality allowing the school to upload student phone numbers into the system, or allowing the students to input their contact numbers individually. Desktop Alert realizes that if you don’t reach students on their mobile phones – often you don’t reach them at all.
