The comprehensive security management software integrates with CodeRED mass notification service.
[MILWAUKEE]—(Insert date here)—The mission to help keep people safe continues as Competitive Edge Software Inc. (CESI) incorporates mass notification capabilities into Report Exec, its incident management software suite designed for security professionals. CESI and Emergency Communications Network (ECN), the nation’s largest provider of mass notification solutions have announced a strategic partnership to offer ECN’s CodeRED mass notification service within Report Exec.
As recent active shooter events and severe weather situations have demonstrated, mass notification has life-saving potential and is a crucial element of a safety strategy. The integration between the two systems makes it easy for Report Exec Dispatch users to quickly deliver messages to targeted individuals through voice calls, text messages, email, RSS feeds and social media. The integration gives dispatchers the tools to effectively reach targeted groups of individuals without expending additional resources outside of the Dispatch module.
Originally developed for local governments to send emergency notifications to citizens, the CodeRED solution enhances the Report Exec software suite as it will allow safety officials at universities, corporations, hospitals and other organizations to notify their communities of dangerous situations, severe weather advisories, viral outbreaks or other urgent developments.
CodeRED utilizes proprietary technology that ensures full message delivery even when calls are picked up by answering devices. ECN will power the integration on the same triple redundant, wholly owned, operated and maintained infrastructure used to send more than 1 billion messages on behalf of public safety organizations across the country.
“This partnership between two industry leaders provides immediate value and efficiency to Report Exec users who are tasked with truly critical responsibilities that require access to a reliable, trusted solution. The core of our business is to effectively alert, inform and affect lives, and we know this partnership makes that possible for the thousands of clients who rely on Report Exec daily,” says David DiGiacomo, ECN President.
Sean Mars, the founder of CESI, states, “We’re constantly working to give security professionals the best tools to help keep people safe. By partnering with ECN, we can harness a proven solution and give our customers critical communication abilities within Report Exec. They won’t have to waste precious time switching between programs or learn a new system—this powerful tool will be right at their fingertips.”
