Notable campuses include Harvard University and Texas A&M


Omnilert, LLC, maker of the leading mass notification system for higher education called Omnilert, today announced that over 100 colleges and universities have adopted its mass text messaging systems.


Ara Bagdasarian, President of Omnilert, LLC said, "We are encouraged by the proactive decisions of the higher education community in recent months, however we have just reached a fraction of where we all need to be."


The heightened awareness of emergency preparedness has prompted school officials to seek better action plans. One solution is to communicate to students personal cell phones via SMS text messaging.
