ECN named finalist in the first annual Bright House Networks Regional Business Awards in Central Florida

ECN announced today that it has been named a finalist in the first annual Bright House Networks Regional Business Awards in Central Florida. Emergency Communications Network was named a finalist in the medium business category for the awards, which honor the companies, organizations and people who have impacted, with their products, services, and thought leadership, the Central Florida community. Winning businesses will be honored at a special celebration on March 19 at Rosen Shingle Creek.

ECN currently provides services to more than 35% of Florida counties and 100+ Florida cities, with additional clients representing every state throughout the county and internationally. ECN’s clients, mostly representing public safety organizations, rely on the CodeRED emergency notification system to deliver time critical information to residents and staff to save lives. In 2014, ECN introduced SmartNotice, a new notification platform designed specifically for businesses to streamline their internal communications while reducing costs and increasing efficiency. ECN was delighted to share with the local business community the tremendous impact its technology has made across the world as it continues to be the dominant leader in the mass notification industry.

Bright House Networks has teamed up with Chambers of Commerce in nine counties to host this event connecting local businesses in a celebration of best-in-class. Bright House Networks will award prizes totaling over $1,000,000, including commercial TV production, air time, customer newsletter and cash.
