Genesis’s Emergency Notification Solutions

by lisa July 10, 2024

Genesis’s Emergency Notification Solutions offers an integrated suite of tools designed to recognize and respond to on-site emergencies, making it an ideal match for your company. The solution detects emergency calls the moment they are initiated and pulls information from various sources to determine the appropriate alert recipients, the method of alert, the information to include, and any additional actions to take. This ensures a comprehensive and efficient response to emergencies, enhancing overall safety and awareness within your organization.

Genesis’s Emergency Notifications Solutions provide on-site alerting, significantly improving staff awareness and safety during critical times. Without the right tools, emergencies can go unnoticed until emergency services arrive, wasting valuable time and potentially jeopardizing safety. This is particularly important for larger organizations, those with after-hours workers, and in the context of the trend towards fewer staff working on-site. With Genesis you can receive alerting capabilities via desktop and web apps, emails, SMS, text-to-speech, and paging ensure that the right staff are notified promptly and accurately.
