Troy, Ohio (PRWEB) March 10, 2008
OneCall Now, a leading provider of group notification solutions for time-sensitive communications, today announced the acquisition of ParentBroadcast's school-to-parent notification service. With four acquisitions in the last 18 months, OneCall Now serves 35,000 schools, colleges, municipalities, religious organizations and youth leagues across the United States - reaching more than four million parents, teachers, emergency personnel, students, residents and members.
OneCall Now will re-brand its popular parent notification service for schools as ParentBroadcast, combining the best features of each company's offering in a comprehensive product for all schools. The ParentBroadcast system can dial thousands of numbers per minute from multiple secure facilities to reach every parent in minutes. In addition, the system automatically interfaces with the nation's leading Student Information Systems such as DASL, Infinite Campus, SASI, STI, Power School and dozens of others.
"ParentBroadcast schools now have immediate access to a full range of exciting and powerful new features," stated David Cullen, CEO and founder of ParentBroadcast. "With the capabilities and experience of OneCall Now, we can greatly improve how we help K-12 schools communicate quickly and easily with parents."
Cullen will remain with OneCall Now and oversee the transition of services and focus on business development opportunities at the company.
"The ability for schools to deliver timely and precise notifications to parents has never been more important," stated Leib Lurie, CEO and founder of OneCall Now. "The union of ParentBroadcast with OneCall Now is another important step in our evolution as a company and will allow us to provide the best and most reliable notification solution to schools across the country. We welcome David and ParentBroadcast's customers to the OneCall Now family."
OneCall Now's rapid growth and expansion is a direct reflection of the growing need for timely delivery of critical communications to large groups. For emergencies and event changes, schools, municipal governments, churches/synagogues, businesses and youth clubs/teams rely on OneCall Now to deliver.
The company's recent acquisitions and strategic partnerships have been focused on enhancing OneCall Now's services and growth. In addition to today's announcement regarding ParentBroadcast, recent acquisitions have included Notify Quick, Teleteam's school and youth client base as well as the client base and software assets of telephony service developer MD Telecom.
