Winston Salem, NC (PRWEB) March 5, 2007
MissionMode Solutions, a leading crisis management and emergency notification system, announced today a record-breaking fourth quarter for 2006. New contracts for the quarter not only doubled projections, but were also four times higher than any other previous quarter.
According to the Gilmore Commission's findings on Homeland Security, private sector resources will likely initiate recovery efforts for the first 72 hours of a crisis until government support can arrive. This requires the private sector to increase investment in crisis implementation technology. The Gilmore Commission was an advisory panel assembled from 1999 to 2003 to assess domestic response capabilities for terrorism. Of the Gilmore Commission's 164 recommendations, 146 have been adopted in whole or in part by Congress and / or the federal government.
MissionMode helps facilitate a company's response to a crisis with its unique combination of multi-modal alert notification and online collaboration center. This creates a virtual emergency operations center (EOC) where crisis management teams can work together towards resolution of any situation. When a critical situation or emergency occurs, an alert can be sent within minutes to all required team members via email, SMS, phones, pagers, or fax. The recipient can then acknowledge the alert and log in to a secure online command center to access up to the minute details on documents, procedures, and tasks, and update the log with information to keep everyone on the same page.
MissionMode is also being used by companies for day-to-day operations in a variety of situations from internal and external announcements and communications, to logging activities and managing projects such as proposal responses.
"The private sector has been focused on process management and improvement for decades as witnessed by the success of ERP vendors like SAP and Oracle," said Ted Collins, CEO and president of MissionMode Solutions. "However what businesses are now realizing is that these tools only work when everything is running exactly as predicted - which rarely ends up being the case. We're now seeing a demand for tools that can facilitate operations when the unexpected occurs - and MissionMode is filling that need."
MissionMode Solutions, Inc. is a technology services provider dedicated to streamlining urgent communications and facilitating team collaboration in a secure environment. MissionMode's unique combination of alert notification and an online collaboration environment creates a virtual command center that helps private and public sector organizations reduce the time between knowing about a mission critical issue and doing something about it.
