Here at Omnilert, we often see schools, businesses, and other institutions seeking a better way to manage user information for their emergency notification systems.
An “Opt-Out” Emergency Notification Service (ENS) is one where you (the institution, school, or business) load in contact info for your users. The users can then “opt-out” if they don’t want to receive your alerts. (This is the opposite of “opt-in”, where users must self-subscribe for alerts.)
There are many different ways to manage users in an emergency notification system (ENS). At its core, an ENS is used to keep your community (campus, school, or business) safe and informed in the event of an emergency.
