Notification system will send FAMU news and emergency info to students’ cell phones
Omnilert LLC, the leading provider of selective mass communications, today announced that Florida A&M University (FAMU) has purchased the e2Campus mass notification system. FAMU is using the web-based service to communicate urgent news to students, faculty and staff whether recipients are in class, on campus, or hundreds of miles away.
Sherri S. Luke, Crime Prevention Officer at Florida A&M University said, “This is an awesome crime prevention tool. Two thumbs up for e2Campus.”
Using e2Campus’ centralized interface, a FAMU school official types a message, selects the groups to receive the message, and then presses a button to send it. Within seconds, the message is simultaneously sent to thousands of relevant people via the method each person chose to receive it, such as a mobile phone, personal or school email account, RSS feed, wireless PDA, or “My Yahoo”, AOL, or Personalized Google web page.
Endorsed by Security On Campus Inc. and used by schools around the country, e2Campus is the Web-based mass notification system that enables school officials to self-administer and send time-sensitive messages for a fraction of the cost and complexity of existing notification solutions. There is no traditional software to install, no hardware to buy and no additional phone lines needed. A school can set up a secure notification system in minutes to send routine, urgent or emergency notifications to their entire campus community or groups, such as multiple campuses, residence halls, staff-only or sports news. e2Campus instantly and simultaneously sends mass alerts to a subscriber’s mobile phone (via SMS text message), BlackBerry, smart phone, wireless PDA, text pager, e-mail account and relevant Web page.
