Case Study: Daimler Trucks North America

Challenge: DTNA facilities across US, Mexico, and Canada present a challenge for corporate communication and unity. This is further compounded because a large percentage of employees do not have company email addresses or phones (plant workers). The initial intent was corporate communication with the potential to move to the plant floor.

Solution: Desktop Alert was implemented and is managed by corporate communications dept. All routine employee notices are delivered to the desktop (pop-ups) and email and fully documented in the Alert History. Also interfaced to system for the delivery of the all HR notifications and job openings. Senior management publishes a newsletter and monthly short CEO video all delivered via Desktop Alert.

Monitors in production areas are used to display alerts and announcements.

Expansion to include the phone/SMS service and mobile application

Product floor usages are now being assessed. Potential uses include assembly line alerts and shutdown, emergency alerts, fire, medical, security…

Future plans: This implementation has been so successful it has expanded to Mercedes Benz financials, is being considered for expansion to all US divisions and for Daimler World-wide Enterprise.

Case Study:

McCormick Place Convention Center

Challenge: Communicating with over 200 security and administrative personnel across four buildings, 2.6 million square feet of exhibit space. Security Chief wanted a means to alert via computers, email, phone, SMS , and mobile application to insure the message was received and acknowledged.

Solution: Desktop Alert network centric mass notification system was implemented for all personnel across the enterprise. Alerts and communication is delivered near real-time to all personnel and devices. A significant increase in the security posture, readiness, and responsiveness; protecting people and property.

Future plans: Expand usage and avenues for revenue generation

Use to update attendees of event meetings and times.

Interface to security cameras for the distribution of real-time security video.

Potential implementation of the Shooter Detection system with DTA interface.

Investigating ways to use DTA for marketing purposes.

More ideas are still being created and implemented using this software mass alert, track, time stamped verify opened/read

Case Study:

Atlantic Health System

Challenge: AHS, a well know healthcare provider throughout NJ, had multiple solutions for messaging, alerting, phone, SMS, and no capability for utilizing their network infrastructure. The systems individually and collectively were insufficient, ineffective, and expensive.

Solution: Initially the implementation of Desktop Alert was limited to Security and IT usage. Further it was hampered by an aging call manager. The system has since been expanded to include all facilities across the enterprise and is now set to be used in total to replace the function of the expensive and limited call manager. The overall coverage is expanding the overall cost is decreasing.

Future Plans: AHS continues to grow and expand through acquisitions and new clinic locations. At least one new Medical Center and all associated clinics will be added in 2016. It is estimated the enterprise will publish over 1 million phone/SMS communications in 2016 and growing. The organization is considering a custom interface for automated HR data integration. Nursing has recently requested access to the Desktop Alert system for emergency, operational, and training messaging.

This scenario is consistent across the health care customers. Every hospital experiences similar issues in administration, medical, IT, facilities, security, emergency preparedness…

Case Study:

Solano County

Challenge: Solano County Risk Management is responsible for providing a safe work environment and thereby reducing the county risk and liability. The county health department provides fixed medical facilities and community nursing and social work. The challenge was to implement an alerting/notification system that provides capabilities across the enterprise for both onsite and offsite personnel.

Solution: Solano County received grant funding from Homeland Security for a pilot project implementing the Desktop Alert platform. The initial pilot included licensing for 250 Users, phone, SMS, and mobile app messaging, and 75 Safekey cellular GPS enabled panic devices (issued to social workers and visiting nurses). The system is managed by Risk Management in partnership with security and IT.

Future Plans: The Risk Management Office has put forth a proposal to expand Desktop Alert to the entire County enterprise of 4800 employees and all departments. As well, they have presented the Desktop Alert implementation as a best practice to the membership of the California State Association of Counties – Excess Insurance Authority (90% of all counties and 60% of al cities are members).
