Regroup is a great tool for communicating in the event of a campus crisis
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 3, 2009
Regroup and Datatel announced today that they have joined forces to provide higher education with a next-generation emergency messaging solution to broadcast alerts to students, staff, and faculty. Critical messages about pandemics, severe weather, and more are conveyed easily through Regroup’s integration of communication platforms that include mobile devices, email, institutional websites, and social-media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. With current concerns about the H1N1 virus, Datatel and Regroup plan to move quickly to bring the joint solution to market.
With Regroup, college and university administrators have an easy, effective way to reach students on their preferred platforms and to provide important announcements in several different ways with the click of a mouse. This improves campus safety and also can save schools thousands of dollars per year on printing expenses.
“Regroup is a great tool for communicating in the event of a campus crisis,” said Martha Asselin, Dean of Student Affairs at SUNY-Schenectady. “And with our improved communications, we can stay in business and support the institution should the campus need to close for days or weeks due to an emergency. I am very impressed with Regroup!”
“Our clients have always placed a priority on campus safety,” said Liz Murphy, Chief Client Officer at Datatel. “And by giving them a tool to break through the information overload experienced by their constituents, security is increased dramatically. Datatel’s partnership with Regroup once again confirms our commitment to bringing cutting-edge Web 2.0 solutions to the market.”
“Administrators need a way to cut through spam and noise and effectively reach a new generation of students who communicate on a variety of platforms. That’s Regroup’s specialty. We’re the easiest, most affordable, and most effective emergency messaging solution — we can
be fully implemented within 72 hours — and we’re proud to partner with Datatel, which is
leading the charge for next-generation higher education solutions,” said Joe DiPasquale, CEO of Regroup.
