Emergency Alerts Through Sms

By: Amika Mobile

Wireless access to email, phone and other critical content is not an extravagance for today’s mobile users — it is a necessity, especially when community safety is involved. When emergency events occur in a community, such as shootings and lockdowns on campus and in buildings, there is an urgent need for the broadcast and delivery of emergency alerts through SMS to community members within minutes, if not seconds. Such emergency notification requires urgent broadcasts of point-to-multipoint messages.

The Amika Mobility Server (AMS) provides a text message-based alert broadcasting system for campus, city, or geographically distributed areas, sending critical public safety information to communities within seconds or minutes. Alerts are transmitted via SMS (TXT), to any SMS-enabled mobile device. Reach anyone or everyone, regardless of their mobile device preference. In addition, the AMS provides your community’s users with motivation to maintain their own data as they change numbers and providers. The AMS acts as an email assistant, constantly monitoring any of a user’s mailboxes for user-defined “critical mail”, sending a summarized version to their mobile devices within minutes of arrival.

The AMS is a fully scalable server that can be customized to meet the needs of any size organization or enterprise. Its emergency broadcast alerting capability can save lives during a crisis when information must be transmitted quickly to small or large groups on a campus.

The Amika Mobility Server links content on wireless devices, campus or enterprise applications and wireless networks. Designed to meet the needs of the campus or enterprise, it provides a proven, secure, open architecture for globally extending alerts or critrical corporate email alerts to mobile users. Companies can obtain up-to-date information on customer interactions, inventories, sales, accounts, tracking, etc. Organizations can quickly notify students and/or employees of vital information involving lockdowns, or other critical alerts.

With the Amika Mobility Server delivering critical emergency alerts and critical corporate content, mobile users can make timely decisions based on the best information available, ensuring their safety, increasing their productivity, and boosting business performance. The Server allows mobile users to have integrated access to the enterprise using their existing mobile handsets, thereby extending the reach of valuable mobile capability to all employees - not just those using smartphones.
