We have a passion for helping those who keep people safe and connected.
Omnilert was conceived in late 2003 when the company founders read a story about a female student who was horrifically raped and murdered in her college dormitory in 1986. The article revealed that one key factor in the incident was that had the student been informed about the criminal on campus, this tragedy may have been prevented.
“There must be a better way to keep students safe and aware.”
The founders combined their backgrounds in web and mobile technology to introduce the world’s first campus emergency notification system in 2004. For the first time schools were empowered to quickly send emergency alerts to students via their mobile phones, email, and web from a single intuitive interface.
Over the next decade, Omnilert continued to pioneer what is now referred to as multimodal or multi-channel communications. In continuing our tradition of innovation, we are constantly expanding the reach of our system as new technologies arise, and are constantly making it easier for our customers to communicate with 10’s or 10’s of thousands of people during a crisis.
Today, over 16,000 organizations including the world’s leading brands rely on Omnilert to keep their 8 million individuals safe and connected.
