Smaller institutions within a consortium will get better pricing than buying alone.
Omnilert, LLC, maker of the leading emergency notification system for higher education, today announced the new Consortium Program. The new program allows higher education institutions that are members of a consortium to collectively purchase Omnilert services at a group rate. The Omnilert Consortium Program will help smaller institutions purchase Omnilert at a lower price.
“This program makes a lot of sense,” said Dr. Lawrence Dotolo, President of the Virginia Tidewater Consortium for Higher Education. “Institutions can come together and leverage their resources to get a better price. Every school is going to need an alert system like Omnilert, and this program provides a great opportunity to get onboard.”
How it Works
Rather than purchase Omnilert services independently, consortium members can initiate service as a group and take advantage of a lower per-user pricing level. The more schools from the consortium that sign up, the more each school will all save. For example, if five schools each with 5,000 users participate in the Omnilert Consortium Program, each school will receive the pricing at the 25,000 user level.
