EM2P AtHoc alternative only alerts a fraction of the population. How can a commander determine who is not important or worthy of being alerted?, said Howard Ryan CEO Desktop Alert Inc.
Chatham, New Jersey (PRWEB) March 13, 2015
Desktop Alert Inc. today announced that West Point Military Academy, Fort Hood and a growing number of U.S. ARMY locations worldwide such as Task Force Strike!, U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) and Northern Command/NORAD Enterprise have officially standardized on the Desktop Alert Mass Notification Platform verses the cloud-based U.S. Army EM2P AtHoc cloud alternative.
“Our system is the only ip-based mass notification platform licensed to cover 100% of all personnel at all Army locations such as West Point, Fort Hood, Fort Campbell, Fort Leavenworth, Fort Leonard Wood, the ARMY and AIR National Guard nationwide and beyond. All have standardized on our alerting platform. We are both honored and thrilled that these iconic department of defense locations chose Desktop Alert over the EM2P AtHoc alternative which only alerts a fraction of the population. How can a commander determine who is not important or worthy of being alerted?” said Howard Ryan CEO Desktop Alert Inc.
Desktop Alert can contact thousands of computer users at their desktop and require them to click to confirm receipt of the message flashed on their screen. Those not verified are then listed on a report and/or sent as an integrated "Target Package" to be automatically contacted by other means such as email, sms, texting, smartphone, and personal safety devices.
"When lives are at stake, seconds count. Look no further than the recent active shooter event at Fort Hood where Desktop Alert was informed by Fort Hood that our notification system outperformed the EM2P AtHoc alert system by several minutes. Military locations need to know there is a vastly superior and vastly more affordable solution available, not to mention that Desktop Alert is an approved EM2P platform!” Ryan added.
