AlertMedia Mobile App Keeps Employees Connected During Disaster

Friends and family in the areas not affected by Harvey or Irma were constantly checking social media to see if loved ones had marked themselves as safe. It is a great tool to have to stay connected – but what about businesses? How do they keep their employees apprised of what is going on during these challenging situations, still keeping some functionality? Many employees have no idea when it is safe to go back to work or when their company will reopen due to a lack of power and a lack of communication, which is where AlertMedia comes in.

Based out of Austin, Texas, one of the states that experienced Harvey the worst, AlertMedia has several known brands under its belt – such as Greyhound, DHL, AT&T (News - Alert), Volkwagen – and has customers in more than 80 countries. Its mobile app, which is cloud-based, can be downloaded in the app store as long as the employer has an existing login. Employers can also have access to an employee dashboard, so they can view how the communications end is performing and to assess if the tool is even worth their time and money or how much it is being utilized.

“Time is everything when you’re running a business — when you’re trying to keep people safe and informed. What we do is we make it easy for any sized organization or employer to interact with all of their people,” says AlertMedia CEO Brian Cruver. “Throughout any crisis, whether it be big or small, the utilization of AlertMedia can allow for pre-written messages and texts to get sent to employees. Info can be carried via texts, phone calls, push notifications, as well as email.”

In the long-run, to know your employees are aware and can react accordingly, incorporating AlertMedia into your company is a worthwhile investment. We have just seen two devastations so there is no time like the present.
