Preparis today released its December 2011 enhancements of its integrated emergency preparedness solution. Highlights of the release include upgrading its online training experience, offering an at-a-glance view of a user’s progress for each crisis management course, the ability to print completion certificates directly from the course page, and more robust training reports. A number of powerful configuration options have also been added, including the ability to customize roles and document categories for faster access to critical people and documents in the event of a crisis.
“We’re pleased we can now offer more flexibility to our clients to enable them to better align Preparis with their organization’s existing crisis structure and needs,” said Cassie Harman, Product Manager at Preparis.
2011 was a year of catastrophic natural disasters and massive impacts from social and economic crisis events, and emergency preparedness remains a top priority for companies of all sizes and geographic locations. “Having a thorough preparedness plan, a trained crisis team in place, and being able to access, respond to and receive information about an emergency instantly throughout the enterprise from wherever you are is crucial to managing a disruption effectively. The upgrades announced today support Preparis’ mission to deliver leading capabilities for our clients,” said Kevin O’Malley, Preparis’ Chief Product Officer.
In response to trends toward an increased use of mobile devices and social networks in a crisis, immediacy and connectivity have become two main drivers behind Preparis’ product strategy. “Our customers provided us feedback that immediacy and connectivity are two primary concerns, and our recent enhancements deliver new tools that enable a fast and accurate response starting in the critical minutes of an incident,” said O’Malley. Preparis will continue to emphasize mobile and enterprise social integration for its products delivering unrivalled integrated emergency notification, crisis training and document management solutions.
