Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) April 4, 2007
Omvox Telecom™, an innovative communications service provider, announced a grant program available to all elementary, middle and high schools in the United States, both public and private on 2/26/07. Booker Independent School District has been awarded said grant and as a result is providing the district with its mass notification alerting system known as ALERTIFY™, which helps schools close the parent-school communications gap through the use of e-mail and telephone.
ALERTIFY™, a service of Omvox Telecom is a web hosted solution requiring no hardware or software to operate, allows a user to record a voice message and send it immediately to all your desired recipients with just one phone call. A message can reach thousands of people in minutes. Alerts and notifications can be sent to landlines, cellular phones (both text and voice) as well as in an e-mail.
Cecelia Cates, Federal Programs Director and spokesperson for Booker ISD said "The Omvox Telecom Grant Program has provided our school district with an opportunity to provide information about such items as early release, extracurricular and emergency situation announcements. The spring season is a busy time of the year, and this system will be very helpful when trying to communicate with parents. The district is looking forward to utilizing the resources provided by the grant."
"With ALERTIFY's grant allowance program, qualifying schools that at one time may not have had access to such technologies, will no longer be forced to worry about relaying pertinent, or time sensitive information to a large amount of people simultaneously, or being able to afford to do so. We congratulate Booker SD on receiving the ALERTIFY™ grant", stated Greg Cogen, Vice President of Business Development for Omvox Telecom.
Michael Self, CEO of Omvox Telecom says "I'm very proud to be sponsoring this program. I feel it is our responsibility to lead by example in helping schools to be proactive in school-parent communications."
Omvox Telecom™ stands apart from the competition by offering the highest quality solutions that technology has to offer. With ALERTIFY™, you get the information you need to the people that need to have it, immediately.
