OnSolve Launches Newly Enhanced Severe Weather and Civil Emergency Alerting Tool For Global Enterprises

Weather & Events feature automates delivery of real-time, geo-targeted notifications to globally dispersed workforces to better protect people and property

ORMOND BEACH, FL, November 7, 2019 – OnSolve, a global leader in critical communication solutions for enterprise, SMB, and government customers, today announced Send Word Now Weather & Events – an enhancement to its award-winning notification system that enables global organizations to automate the delivery of real-time, location-based notifications to employees regarding severe weather and civil emergency events.

Organizations face an increasingly complex threat climate that can disrupt and threaten business operations and employee safety.  Weather & Events allows organizations to set up automated, system-generated alerts in specific locations. Alert types include weather-related categories such as severe (thunderstorm and tornado), winter, coastal (including lake shore), tropical, fire, flood and non-precipitation (air quality, blowing dust, fog, etc.), as well as civil emergencies, such as a child abduction emergency, hazardous materials warning, or an immediate evacuation.

One of the most robust enhancements to Weather & Events is that it will be global, with availability in the U.S., Canada, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, the US territories of American Samoa, Guam, the US Virgin Islands, Australia, Europe and Japan. Organizations can rapidly communicate with workforces operating in regions around the world with dynamic and highly localized geopolitical, business and economic risks when threats emerge.

“Send Word Now Weather & Events extends notification capabilities to new global regions and now covers critical events beyond severe weather,” said Ann Pickren, President, OnSolve. “As a result, organizations can better protect employees, property and assets by delivering accurate information to the right people in the right places at the right times – and receive real-time responses back.”

Weather & Alerts is a subscription-based service that enables fast, precisely generated notifications via multiple modalities, including phone (landline and wireless), email, SMS, and mobile app push notifications. The weather feature is powered by The Weather Company®, a reliable source for live, world-wide weather data. This precision data, which is more granular than zip codes, allows for the monitoring of severe weather patterns internationally and provides alerts from data-derived sources.

With Send Word Now, organizations can implement the industry’s most powerful communication platform to alert employees and other key stakeholders before, during and after critical events.
