AlertMedia – Helping companies protect their people during emergencies with fast, reliable communication and threat intelligence


A mass notification system is extremely important especially in times of emergency. The said system does away with the challenge of communicating with employees one at a time when emergency situations already bring about panic and stress. A flawless emergency communication system can mean the difference between life and death. One way organizations are making sure that employees are kept out of harm’s way is by installing emergency broadcast system alerts. The system not only notifies employees about the emergency, it also automatically informs local authorities about what is going on so they can immediately take action.

AlertMedia is the world’s leading emergency communication provider. Its award-winning, two-way multichannel messaging system, threat intelligence, and 24/7 employee safety solutions help organizations protect their people and business through all phases of an emergency. AlertMedia supports critical communication for thousands of leading businesses—including DHL, JetBlue, Coca-Cola Bottling, and Walmart—in more than 130 countries.

Leveraging Products You Need to Keep Your People Safe

Emergency Preparedness: Today’s organizations face an increasing number of threats to their people and assets. A modern emergency communication solution is essential to ensuring your organization can react quickly to threats to prevent loss and reduce the impact on employee safety, company assets, and business continuity. Empower employees to easily report safety incidents, provide real-time feedback from the field, or ask for assistance with powerful, two-way communication features like read receipts and multichannel surveys. Get up-to-date, verified information about critical events before they impact your people. Leverage location-based alerts to quickly notify employees about nearby threats—including severe weather, political upheaval, disease outbreak, and more.

Threat Intelligence: The needs of safety-minded organizations have changed. Managing risk is getting harder as critical events have increased in scope and severity while workforces have grown more dispersed—making traditional strategies obsolete. You need to know about these events before the damage is done. You need intelligence you can trust and act on with confidence. Their team of in-house analysts works around the clock to monitor thousands of data sources, filter out the noise, and deliver only the most relevant view of events that may impact your people or business.

Their intelligence team acts as your eyes and ears so you can meet the demand of protecting your people and business at scale.
