Omnilert Desktop Alert Combines High-Visibility Alerts with Interaction

LEESBURG, October 27, 2021 — Omnilert, pioneers of the emergency mass notification system market and trusted partner to thousands of institutions, introduces yet another innovation and expansion to their comprehensive set of services with the release of Omnilert Desktop Alert, version 2.0.


In a time of crisis — be it an extreme weather update, a hazardous maintenance issue or a potential active shooter incident — it’s critical that information reach everyone who may be impacted by the event, as quickly as possible. This means reaching people where they are, on the devices they use and on the devices that they see and hear. It also means being able to interact with constituents, giving them ways to call for help, provide information to prevent or better manage an unfolding situation and receive targeted guidance.


Omnilert Desktop Alert combines high-visibility alerting to wall-mounted and desktop displays with the delivery of its safety app onto shared and private desktops. The result is a product that combines two fundamental capabilities into one seamless service.


Improved reach through extending Omnilert’s industry-leading multi-channel messaging to wall-mounted displays posted in an organization’s hallways and common spaces, as well as onto the desktop monitors in shared spaces or a subscriber’s own desktop. These messages are delivered with an audible alert and shown full-screen with interleaved text and graphics automatically displayed as a “slide-show” to maximize the visibility and impact of the communication.


Improved engagement through extending the Omnilert Safety App to the desktop and enabling an array of interactive capabilities. Unlike traditional desktop alerting systems, subscribers can provide preventative information through “Tipping,” call for help with the Panic Button, access up-to-date safety resources and engage in two-way communication with the safety team.


“This next generation of Desktop Alert gives our customers more effective ways to improve the safety of their people by taking a traditionally one-way system and giving it interactive powers,” said Dave Fraser, CEO at Omnilert. “Our goal is not only to extend the value of an existing infrastructure by alerting to desktops and high-visibility displays, but to add a vital, preventative capability through the ability to interact,” Fraser continued.
