How we compare

What you should look for in an emergency-notification solution

We realize that it can be a challenge to pick the RIGHT emergency-notification solution for your organization.  To help make your job easy, please feel free to use the checklist below as a guide that was created by experts that have extensive experience in the emergency-notification arena.

The secrets to selecting the right system:  Avoid systems that require special hardware, software and smartphone apps.   Also, avoid those that try to impress you with an excessive array of features that can frustrate users.  Most importantly:  Insist on a trial to verify each claim made by each vendor before you buy.
