Emergency Communications Network acquires One Call Now Geo Clients

Emergency Communications Network (ECN) has acquired One Call Now’s Government Emergency Center / 911 clients, adding them to the thousands of ECN client communities nationwide.

One Call Now (OCN) specializes in communication solutions for businesses, education and non-profit groups, delivering “Messages That Matter” to inform and engage regularly with staff, families and members of their organizations globally.

A new partnership program between the two firms will assure that both company’s respective clients and prospects will get the ideal services and tools that best fit their needs. This acquisition allows both ECN and OCN to focus on their respective core competencies.

“A majority of Emergency Communications Network clients are city, local and state agencies that require critical, high-speed mass notification to inform both internal and external audiences of time-sensitive messages,” said David DiGiacomo, President & CEO of ECN. “This is an important acquisition for Emergency Communications Network as we continue to grow and specialize in the citizen notification market.”

OCN’s Government Emergency Center / 911 Citizen Notification clients will immediately benefit from the market expertise of ECN’s patented technology, including a web-based mapping interface. The software, written and exclusively hosted by ECN, allows clients to quickly and easily target their messages to exact geographic areas.

The acquisition further strengths ECN’s leadership position in the citizen notification business helping the company to strategically focus and concentrate on servicing government agencies. With more than 20 years of critical communication experience, ECN utilizes a variety of proprietary and patented technologies for its web-based communications solutions. ECN is the largest and most trusted vendor in the emergency citizen communication space with clients representing all 50 states.

“In an increasingly perilous world, where external safety and security concerns threaten citizens throughout the country, we are proud to assure that our government agency clients receive a more focused emergency management agency oriented solution. Our folks can direct all of our resources on enhancing the pro-active messaging services that our 150,000 Business, Education and Non-Profit Client Groups require,” said Leib Lurie, CEO of One Call Now.
