Every second counts in a crisis situation. We created iAlert to make reporting crisis, emergency and urgent situations faster and to improve communications that enhance response time.
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) May 20, 2014
Intercede Services, a software company specializing in solutions that reduce organizational risk and improve personal safety, has just launched a campus incident reporting app called iAlert that allows teachers, students and corporate employees to notify designated security and first responders about crisis or emergency situations in a matter of seconds. iAlert allows users to instantly notify multiple responders of an emergency incident allowing for fast and efficient communication to mitigate critical situations and promote safety and compliance. Pre-determined responders are able to react immediately based on the unique geo-location technology used by iAlert.
The iAlert app is targeted to school districts, colleges, universities, hospitals and commercial business campuses. It is currently compatible with recent iPhone technology and available through a subscription package with Intercede Services.
“Every second counts in a crisis situation. We created iAlert to make reporting crisis, emergency and urgent situations faster and to improve communications that enhance response time,” said Jerry Overcash, president and CEO of Intercede Services. “The majority of people have their cell phone with them at all times. The ability to simply click an app and reach multiple responders at once decreases chaos and enables a smoother, more efficient response.”
iAlert was designed as a solution for three common types of incidents: true crisis events, like shootings and assaults; emergency events, such as medical and violence; and urgent events, such as bullying, stealing, campus watch programs and campus/workplace accidents.
Clients pre-determine internal and external responders for specific events. These pre-configured responders receive an alert on their phones or system with the emergency type, along with the name of the person submitting the emergency, their geo location, the time and date. Additional information (e.g. health conditions), photos, witness accounts and videos can also be captured.
The stress of a crisis situation can be chaotic. iAlert helps people under stress make smart decisions that are compliant with organizational policies and enable the fastest response times to aid the situation. iAlert also integrates with Intercede’s industry leading incident management reporting and resolution applications.
