AlertMedia, a Finalist in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award Program, has been selected by Wings Financial Credit Union, one of the 30 largest credit unions in the United States, to deploy AlertMedia’s two-way emergency mass notification system to enhance and improve their communications with employees around critical events.
AlertMedia has modernized mass communications by delivering an easy-to-use software platform that helps organizations efficiently and effectively communicate around any event.
Whether they have an audience of 50 or 50,000 people, organizations like Wings Financial turn to AlertMedia when they need a reliable, quick, and simple solution to keep everyone connected during critical situations.
AlertMedia enables organizations to interact with their audience from any mobile device, consolidating unlimited communication channels – such as voice, text, native apps, email, social media, and Slack – into one simple user experience.
Wings Financial has over 400 employees working in 23 branches from Orlando to Seattle.
“We were looking for a tool that would help our management team communicate and share information, especially anything of critical importance,” said Brad Grant, Vice President of Information Services for Wings Financial.
“We looked around at various technologies and determined that AlertMedia could meet our needs at a very cost-effective price point.”
While Wings Financial implemented AlertMedia as part of its disaster recovery plan, the platform’s simple interface and versatility encouraged the credit union to expand how it uses the communication tool.
“AlertMedia’s mobile app was a must-have component because so much of our life is now conducted on the go. It’s so easy to use,” added Grant.
“You log in to the app, grab a template, send the message to a specific group, and know that the information was received.”
“We were performing critical maintenance recently and needed to alert members of the IT team. We didn’t want to depend on people checking their email so we used the AlertMedia platform to notify them.”
“With winter approaching, we’ve been conducting severe weather drills and considering using AlertMedia to communicate with branches in affected areas about their severe weather plans.”
AlertMedia enables enterprise customers in 80+ countries across all industries to send and receive unlimited messages with their audience via multiple channels, including custom channels that can be easily integrated using the AlertMedia API.
“AlertMedia has simplified and modernized how enterprise organizations communicate during critical events,” explains Brian Cruver, CEO of AlertMedia.
“Whether it’s a large credit union like Wings Financial, a bank, insurance company or global financial services corporation, organizations around the world trust our reliable, secure platform to protect their people and businesses by enabling the timely exchange of important information.”
