Samantha Leland By Samantha Leland

Omnilert’s e2Campus program will play a key role in EDUCAUSE 2016
by presenting new communications solutions that focus on the world of automation. 


The EDUCAUSE Annual Conference is the premier convening of IT professionals and technology providers across the diverse higher education landscape. The conference creates networking opportunities for colleagues to share ideas regarding strategies, leading change, effective processes, what's working, and sometimes—more importantly—what isn't.


EDUCAUSE 2016 will be held in Anaheim, CA on October 25th-28th.

In unison with those goals, Omnilert will be showcasing new solutions designed to help the higher education community automate critical communications.  Attendees will have the first look at both Triggers(™) and the new Scenarios(™).  These solutions were designed to help organizations seamlessly automate critical communications; with the goal of mitigating risk, strengthening campus safety, and improving operational response efforts.


We’d like to hear from you - visit with the e2Campus team at booth 744 - to share how your campus is automating emergency communications currently, and pick up the latest edition of Critical Mass Magazine.
