Washington Credit Union Chooses Intelligent Notification from MIR3 as Corporate Alerting Tool

Notification platform replaces resource-sapping phone-tree system, saving time and money for credit union and staff.

SAN DIEGO (April 29, 2014)MIR3, Inc., the innovator of real-time Intelligent Notification (IN™) and response technology, today announced that Washington State Employees Credit Union (WSECU), trusted adviser to over 170,000 members, is adopting Intelligent Notification Essentials™ edition as a system for important message delivery and as a tool to alert staff in case of emergency.

WSECU will use Intelligent Notification Essentials to alert over 750 employees in just moments if there is an emergency or other need to deliver information and direction. The new system empowers administrators at WSECU to deliver important messages to targeted audiences quickly and through multiple communication modalities, while providing a mechanism for rapid and useful response. The new system is faster, more reliable and more cost-effective than the call-tree system the institution formerly used.

“WSECU is rightly using the Essentials edition as a tool for crisis communication,” says Amir Moussavian, president and CEO of MIR3. “By establishing automated notification across business units and departments they demonstrate that they understand the bigger picture of notification as a platform, not merely a one-use tool.”

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.
