The expanded relationship between PlantCML and Onset Technology provides an extremely flexible and reliable means of communicating critical messages at all times.
Franklin, TN and Waltham, MA (Vocus) September 19, 2010
PlantCML®, an EADS North America company, and Onset Technology, Inc., two of the leading providers of business continuity and mission critical communication solutions, announced today the expansion of their partnership agreement to deliver higher availability of emergency communication, notification and access to information.
Leveraging proven technologies utilized by hundreds of government agencies and companies worldwide, this enhanced partnership delivers a comprehensive, one-stop solution for uninterrupted communication. The combination of PlantCML’s advanced emergency notification capabilities and Onset’s Priority Blackberry® messaging allows clients to further expand and ensure their communication reach.
“Existing business continuity and disaster recovery plans are highly vulnerable to the availability of conventional communication methods,” said Dan Inbar, VP of business development for Onset Technology. “The blended solution provides an added measure of redundancy and assurance that greatly enhances the viability of existing business continuity and disaster recovery provisions.”
Through the partnership, users of PlantCML’s The Communicator!® NXT™ emergency notification solution (version 4.2 or higher) will be able to get information into the hands of people even when email, voice and text messages may fail. This redundant, high-availability communication is possible because Blackberry pin-to-pin messages sent through Onset’s offerings are not dependent on carrier infrastructure, like SMS, allowing communication to bypass all conventional means for direct, device-to-device notification.
“An ever-increasing reliance on mobile communication makes it necessary for PlantCML to support a wide variety of devices to provide our clients the greatest opportunity possible for getting information out to their audiences,” said Mike Adams, product line manager for PlantCML’s Notification Solutions and Services (NSS) business unit. “Our expanded relationship with Onset Technology provides an extremely flexible and reliable means of communicating critical messages at all times.”
Onset Technology (booth #94) and PlantCML (booth #108) will showcase their solutions at the Disaster Recovery Journal Conference, which takes place September 19-22 in San Diego.
