iPhone Empowered as Mobile Emergency Command Device; IT Alerts, Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, CRM and Other Important Enterprise Notifications can be Initiated and Managed with the Touch of a Screen
SAN DIEGO – November 6, 2007 – MIR3™, the technology leader in Intelligent Notification (IN®) solutions for global enterprises, today announced the availability of the first enterprise notification and command interface for the Apple iPhone™ and iPod® touch (dubbed “iTouch” by the media) mobile communications platform. These full-featured Web-based management applications from MIR3 run under Apple’s mobile Safari™ browser to enable corporate executives and IT administrators to initiate emergency notifications and remotely manage enterprise notification systems and response teams using Apple iPhone or iTouch mobile devices.
“Apple’s new generation mobile communicator is growing in popularity among corporate users because of their larger screen sizes, easier-to-use touch screen keyboards and anywhere network access,” said Amir Moussavian, CEO of MIR3. “With this new application, MIR3 has empowered the Apple iPhone as a remote emergency command device. MIR3 has a history of technology innovation and is committed to delivering support for all mobile devices, all mobile platforms and all modalities. We believe that as iPhone is adopted more widely and accepted as an enterprise communications device, corporate iPhone users will represent an important segment within the mobile-enabled enterprise notification and emergency response industry.”
MIR3’s iPhone interface also functions as an automated mobile command dashboard that allows executives to instantly notify and initiate live voice conferences among the appropriate response-team members, and access MIR3’s real-time reporting features to track notifications and responses on their iPhone.
“Disasters and emergencies are almost always unexpected, and there’s a high probability that many executives and first responders will not have access to their desktops when crucial decisions must be made and quick action steps taken,” Moussavian added. “Mobile devices may be the only functional option for decision makers during an emergency, and we believe that the iPhone, with its game-changing communication capabilities, will be a preferred crisis management and emergency communications tool for many of them.”
MIR3’s Web-based iPhone notification applications are 100% compliant with Apple’s current guidelines for iPhone software development using the mobile Safari browser.
