Share Article

New panic button feature allows school faculty to instantly broadcast students via voice or text message.

Group2call, Inc. have released their professional edition of their mass-group voice and message broadcasting Message Center application which includes a new "panic button" feature that will allow staff of any organization, such as school faculty, to instantly broadcast alerts to their staff and students in case of emergency.

Group2call's Panic Button feature is simple to use: Phone numbers of individuals are put into a group and then a secret keyword is assigned which can be distributed such as to a School's faculty. In the event of an emergency staff can simply call a toll free number and enter the secret code, or text message the secret code directly to a number provided by Group2call. Group2call's servers will then instantly broadcast an emergency message either by voice or text message to all of the contacts in the group.

"We recently implemented the panic button feature because of the recent tragedy at Virginia Tech ," said Jill Lougher, Group2call's VP of Product Development, "Schools have been using our systems for broadcast messaging but there lacks a method of instantly initiating a broadcast to a group of a few thousand individuals at the time of need. When time is the essence, you need to get that message out fast. And the quickest way to do this is via our simple process which now takes less than two steps to initiate the broadcast.".

What separates Group2call from other automated phone dialers or phone trees is its many ways of sending a message. Group2call can send messages as voice, SMS, email, convert text-to-speech and can even send emails from personal email applications as a voice message to a phone.

Group2call have also made their voice delivery engine available through an API which means applications such as appointment reminder services or CRM applications can embed voice messaging directly into their own systems.

Group2call is currently offering free setups for schools. For additional information visit the web site http://www.group2call.com or email info@group2call.com
