Benefits of switching to a Hosted Environment

by lisa April 26, 2024

In today's dynamic business landscape, staying competitive means embracing innovation, efficiency, and adaptability. One significant shift that forward-thinking businesses are making is transitioning to hosted software solutions. Moving away from traditional on-premises software to hosted options offers a multitude of benefits, revolutionizing the way companies operate. Let's explore why making this transition with your Genesis Software is a strategic move for any business. 

Cost-Effectiveness: Hosting software off-site eliminates hefty upfront investments in hardware, infrastructure, and maintenance. Through a subscription-based model with Genesis Systems, businesses enjoy predictable monthly expenses, avoiding unexpected costs from hardware failures.

Scalability: With Genesis Systems our hosted solutions offer scalability tailored to the needs of your business. Whether you're a small startup or a large enterprise, you can easily scale your software resources up or down as your business grows or requirements change. This flexibility ensures that you're never paying for more than what you need.

Accessibility with Flexibility: With hosted software, access isn't restricted to a single physical location or device. Employees can securely access applications and data from anywhere with an internet connection, enabling remote work, collaboration, and productivity. This flexibility is particularly advantageous in today's mobile-driven work environment.

Streamlined Maintenance & Support: Say goodbye to the hassle of managing software updates, patches, and troubleshooting. Hosted software providers handle maintenance tasks, ensuring that your applications are always up-to-date and running smoothly. Additionally, comprehensive support services are typically included, minimizing downtime and maximizing productivity.

Enhanced Collaboration & Integration: Many hosted software solutions offer seamless integration with other business tools and applications, fostering collaboration and streamlining workflows. Whether it's integrating with PBX, paging system, or other communication tools, businesses can create cohesive ecosystems that enhance efficiency and decision-making.

By embracing hosted software, organizations can unlock new levels of agility, efficiency, and competitiveness, positioning themselves for long-term success in an ever-evolving marketplace. Contact Genesis Systems today to learn more about our hosted offerings.

Incident Aware is Now Available in the RingCentral App Gallery!

by Nathan March 3, 2023

Although our Mass Notification and Incident Tracking & Response Enhancement solution has been compatible with RingCentral for some time, it's now officially listed and available as a stand-alone solution. RingCentral users can confidently choose Incident Alert to enhance both their alerting for emergencies originating through RingCentral phone use, and those originating from outside of their RingCentral, platform entirely.

Many RingCentral users have chosen to add our GenAlert solution in order to greatly expand their awareness using our emergency alerting options (including alert formats, intelligent recipient and path selection based on location, etc.), while ensuring thorough records are kept of all call details, call audio, and validated caller location. Using Incident Aware, either stand-alone or in conjunction with GenAlert, provides additional integrations with overhead paging, push notifications via our cross-platform app, 2-way SMS, and adds the ability to generate alerts completely outside of the RingCentral solution, to nearly any person or device, for any purpose.

Incident Aware is used to enhancing emergency response management by many businesses operating large campuses or facilities. Often, emergencies within these facilities can be difficult to detect, and it can be similarly challenging to both notify all staff and disseminate clear instructions to all emergency participants to ensure the greatest level of safety. By providing detailed instructions, checklists, and robust, real-time multi-channel 2-way communications, you can collaborate with everyone within your organization and ensure nothing is missed, and everyone is safe.

Contact Genesis for more information on how Incident Aware works with your RingCentral solution, other on-prem or hosted voice solutions, and how we can help optimize your on-site safety regardless of your goals.

Emergency Notifications in Your Hotel

by Nathan February 14, 2023

Hotels are a home away from home for travelers, offering comfort, convenience, and safety. As such, hotel management is responsible for ensuring the safety and security of their guests at all times. One important aspect of this is having effective emergency notification tools in place. Emergency notification tools can save lives in the event of an emergency, and they can also provide peace of mind to guests and staff.

Hotels have fire detection and prevention solutions in place, but often do not have any emergency alerting or broadcasting systems. These tools are essential because they can alert guests and staff to potential dangers, and they can provide critical and timely information on how to respond to emergency situations. They can also help prevent panic and confusion, which can be just as dangerous as the emergency itself.

Emergency Alerting solutions can be used to alert guests and staff to a wide range of emergencies, such as severe weather, natural disasters, acts of terrorism, evacuation or lockdown events, and other potential emergencies. These systems can provide specific instructions to both staff and guests on how to respond to the emergency, such as where to go and what to do. They can also help prevent misinformation and rumors from spreading, which can create unnecessary panic and confusion.

Additionally, text messaging, phone calls, and digital signage can be used to reach guests directly and provide them with information on the emergency and what they should do. Digital signage can be used to display emergency alerts and instructions in common areas of the hotel. these tools also provide guests with the ability to remain in contact with the hotel and staff after evacuation and while awaiting further instructions, or in the event of additional needs for assistance.

Emergency notification tools are essential in hotels to ensure the safety and security of guests and staff. They can save lives, prevent panic and confusion, and provide peace of mind. Hotel management should invest in high-quality emergency notification tools and ensure that they are regularly maintained and tested to ensure they are functioning properly. By doing so, they can help create a safe and secure environment for everyone.

GenAlert Real-Time 911 Alerting Now Supports Mitel!

by Nathan April 21, 2021

Genesis is excited to announce our GenAlert real-time 911 alerting solution is now compatible with Mitel Phone Systems!

Many Mitel users already use our Call Tracking solution for managing staffing resources and telephone use (and misuse), and can now add real-time alerting to greatly improve on-site awareness and emergency response time. The issue with standard call-accounting-based alerting solutions is that they only notify you once the call has completed (hung up).

Since real emergency calls are rarely terminated prior to emergency services arriving on-site, staff often have no idea anything is happening until help is already on-site. Since staff are the closest responders - and are certainly more familiar with the premises - they need to be the first people to know when there's an issue requiring emergency help. Response can then start immediately, staff can coordinate and both attend to the emergency and be ready to direct Fire, Police and EMS services prior to their arrival. 

Mitel users can receive alerts via a combination of desktop-based alerts, in-app notifications on Android & iOS devices, emails, SMS messages, and custom integrations with strobe lights and other equipment. Combining all these paths, it's nearly impossible for your staff to not be immediately aware there's an emergency in progress that requires their help.

 

When adding in our call tracking & reporting solution and our app-based incident tracking & mass notifications, the overall solution provides the most comprehensive reporting, tracking, and alerting solution for Mitel users of any size.

Contact Genesis for more information on our Mitel-compatible solutions and how we can help you meet your custom requirements!
