Send Word Now from OnSolve Wins Continuity, Insurance & Risk (CIR) Magazine’s Most Innovative Product of the Year

Mobile communication app SWN Direct recognized for innovative alerting feature and capability enhancements over past year

ORMOND BEACH, FL, July 10, 2017 – Send Word Now® from OnSolve, a leading emergency notification and mobile collaboration solution, today announced its SWN Direct mobile app has been presented with the Continuity Insurance & Risk (CIR) Magazine’s Most Innovative Product of the Year Award for 2017.  The award was judged by an independent panel of industry experts and presented during an awards gala in London, UK.

In awarding SWN Direct Most Innovative Product of the Year, the judging panel determined that the mobile app demonstrated the most innovation in product development over the past year and contributed to the business continuity/resilience function. SWN Direct is a groundbreaking, fully integrated mobile app for alert recipients. The app utilizes Internet Protocol (IP) end-to-end, which allows users to bypass telephony carriers, SMS gateways, etc. and communicate directly over any data network – eliminating many of the common problems associated with traditional alerting channels.

“We are thrilled that SWN Direct has been recognized for its innovation and enhancements made to the mobile app over the past year that further improve the user experience and ensure critical communications can reach increasingly mobile recipients on any device and in any location,” said Wain Kellum, OnSolve CEO. “Send Word Now’s commitment to product innovation and its ability to complement our broader product portfolio is a key reason we brought the company into the OnSolve family.”

In June, Emergency Communications Network (ECN), a leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider of critical event management and emergency notification systems, announced the acquisition of Send Word Now, and rebranding of the companies as OnSolve.

The Business Continuity Awards, now in its 19th year, recognize business continuity, security, resilience and risk organizations whose innovative strategies and industry savvy make them stand out above the rest.
