ISSofBC Chooses Intelligent Notification Essential Edition from MIR3 as Crisis Communication Tool
Canadian immigration services society implements automated notification to alert staff in case of emergency.
SAN DIEGO (May 6, 2014)—MIR3, Inc., the innovator of real-time Intelligent Notification (IN™) and response technology, today announced that Immigrant Services Society of British Columbia (ISSofBC), provider of support services for immigrants and refugees, is adopting Intelligent Notification Essentials™ edition as a tool to alert staff in case of emergency or business disruption.
ISSofBC will use Intelligent Notification Essentials to reach over 250 employees in just moments in the event of an emergency or other urgent business disruption. Automated notification makes it easy for organizations like ISSofBC to deliver important messages to the recipient’s choice of communication device and allows a rapid and useful response. The Essentials edition has been successfully used by organizations to replace manual phone trees and paging systems and is the solution of choice for emergency management and first responder communication.
“ISS of BC has made a smart decision in choosing the Essentials edition as a tool for crisis communication,” says Ann Pickren, COO of MIR3. “Although no business wants to think an emergency could cripple their operations, the wise director or CEO will make sure that if the unthinkable happens, his or her staff can be quickly notified and directed to take protective action.”
Intelligent Notification Essentials edition is used by organizations seeking a streamlined way to deliver urgent notifications to employees, partners, vendors, customers and shareholders. It’s employed by the military to mobilize and recall troops, law enforcement to direct officers, cities to alert citizens in times of threat or evacuation, and by universities to alert parents, students and staff about school closings and emergencies.
