Texas Southern University to Implement MIR3 Emergency Notification Platform
MIR3’s Solution Reliability and Reputation Solidifies Contract Win
SAN DIEGO (March 13, 2008) – MIR3, Inc., the leader in Intelligent Notification (IN®) solutions for global enterprises, today announced that Texas Southern University (TSU) has awarded the company a contract to be the official emergency notification platform for its campus located in Houston, Texas. TSU joins the long list of colleges and universities that have signed with MIR3 in the last 12 months, which is evidence of the burgeoning need to help keep campuses safe during times of crisis.
Higher education institutions place a high value on MIR3’s multi-modal notification approach, which enables simultaneous use of several types of communication devices to alert and instruct employees, first-responders, students, and customers during an emergency.
Multi-modal communication is particularly important within a student population. Recent events involving on-campus tragedies make it a necessity for schools nationwide to be able to communicate with students, parents and faculty immediately – alerting them of dangerous situations or changes in procedure at a moment’s notice.
MIR3’s inCampusAlert™ enables organizations to reach thousands of contacts in seconds with time-critical information in the event of an emergency. Messages are delivered via cellular and landline phones, Short Message Service (SMS) devices, email, fax and pagers. Notifications can be sent via the Internet, dual-tone multifrequency,(DTMF) phones, e-mail or by calling MIR3’s 24/7/365 support center. MIR3’s notification capabilities are also used for routine high-volume messaging and all-purpose broadcasting, such as administrative notices to employees, messages for coordinating staffing and schedules or delivering important, auditable information to customers.
Additionally, with the masses who own cellular telephones, MIR3’s system is the only notification system on the market today which allows for true two-way text messaging, real-time reports and integrated incident management – critical features when an organization needs to quickly mobilize first-responders and officials during crises. The cost of implementing this system pales in comparison to the peace of mind we gain knowing we can potentially keep our students and staff safe from harm.
