Our mission is clear.
Provide a better way to keep people safe and aware during a crisis.

An Idea Was Born

Late in 2003, Omnilert’s founders read a story about a female student – horrifically raped and murdered in her college dorm in 1986. The article revealed one key factor in the incident: had the student been informed about the criminal on campus, this tragedy may have been prevented.

Our founders, Ara H. Bagdasarian and Niclas K. Gustavsson, 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. This system, which came to be known as e2Campus, is still the recognized market leader in critical communications for campuses across the country.

The Legacy of Innovation Continues

Having defined the market for higher education and campus environments, Omnilert broadened its reach into multiple industries including government, hospitals, retail, hospitality, and other commercial enterprise arenas. Striving to set the pace in technology, knowledge, and customer enablement, we lead the industry in the enhancement of such critical capabilities as Omnimodal Notifications, Scenarios management, and response team training and mobilization. Helping you focus on measuring and improving performance, emergency readiness, and event outcomes — so that your response teams act with speed and effectiveness even under extreme duress — is one of our highest goals.

Our Focus - To Empower Those Who Protect Lives

We’re not in the business of providing general notification or text message systems. We focus all of our resources exclusively on critical and emergency communications to empower the “outcome owners” – those whose role is to protect lives during a crisis; whether on a campus, in a mall, or at an office building.

Today, thousands of organizations, including the world’s leading brands, rely on our technology and focused commitment to keep millions of individuals safe and connected.

Future-Proof Your Investment

Omnilert has established a culture of innovation spanning more than a decade.  This continues today to keep you ahead of the curve with constant upgrades and enhancements that harness the advancements in communications technologies.
