A partial list of higher education institutions that have recently implemented an Omnilert emergency notification system include Campbell University, Charter Oak State College, Claflin University, Franklin University, Kentucky State University, McMurry University, New Mexico State University at Alamogordo, North Idaho College, South Texas College of Law, Southern Illinois College, Thunderbird School of Global Management, Louisiana School for the Deaf, University of Maine at Farmington, University of Nevada–Reno, University of Wisconsin–Platteville, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, University Center of Lake County, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, and Warner Pacific College.


"Thunderbird School of Global Management signed up with Omnilert's emergency alert services in order to better prepare us to quickly and effectively alert the Thunderbird community in case of an emergency," says Carol Sunnucks, Sr. Director of Corporate Communications.


Edward Field, Director of Information Technology at Kentucky State University said, "KSU wanted the ability to communicate to our campus community via text messaging, digital signage, e-mail and land lines from one unified source. We selected Omnilert as our emergency notification alert system because it was easy to setup and had a user friendly web interface for administrative management.”


Mr. Fields continued, “Beyond sending voice messages to cell phones and land lines and sending text messages to cell phones, it integrates with our existing digital signage system. There is a lot of bang for the buck with Omnilert. The cost for three year service is very competitive and they have great customer service."
