Accessible from www.e2Campus.org, customers can learn details about qualified third-party technology such as desktop alert software, digital signage systems, scrolling LED displays, indoor and outdoor loudspeakers, fire alarms, alert beacons, blue light emergency phones, VoIP phone systems, social media, and more.

Third-party technology must pass a thorough testing program before being “certified” to integrate with e2Campus. “Certified Endpoint Providers” or CEPs include technology from ActiveAccess, Alertus Technologies, BRG Precision Products, Exhibio, Facebook, Inova Solutions, MagicBox, Twitter, Visix, Whelen, and others. Many other third party technology providers are qualified to successfully integrate with e2Campus, but cannot be mentioned here without violating trademarks. CEPs provide additional feedback and reporting within the e2Campus interface.

“e2Campus is the epicenter of notifications systems,” says Nick Gustavsson, Chief Technology Officer at Omnilert. “Every day, new communication technologies emerge and it is critical for schools to be able to send emergency information to all of these technologies – from one centralized interface. This keeps the message uniform and delivers information in the way that notifies the entire community reliably. The Multimodal Showcase is a significant milestone in ensuring e2Campus customers have the necessary tools to keep their communities safe.”

A modern campus can alert students via text, voice, signage, web, public address, and countless other means, and e2Campus allows schools to do this simultaneously. By integrating the schools’ existing technology infrastructure with e2Campus, bureaucratic and human bottlenecks to broadcast an urgent message are eliminated, enabling fast, accurate delivery of messages via multiple, integrated communication channels. The issuer of e2Campus alerts has complete control over which endpoints receive e2Campus alerts on a case-by-case basis, which ensures that relevant alerts get to the right people in the community.
