AlertMedia’s mass communication platform, a 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award Winner, has been selected by Integral Care, a provider of community-based behavioral health and intellectual and developmental disability services, to equip their facilities and improve critical communications with hundreds of staff members working in over 40 Travis County locations.
AlertMedia has modernized emergency mass communications for organizations by delivering an easy-to-use software platform that connects people during critical situations, such as severe weather events and IT outages.
AlertMedia’s web and mobile applications enable organizations to interact with their audience from any device, over any communication channel—such as voice, text, native apps, email, social media, and Slack—keeping their people safe and informed in a matter of seconds.
Like Integral Care, organizations of all sizes turn to AlertMedia for a reliable, quick, and simple solution to keep everyone connected during critical events.
Time is of the essence in emergency situations, and AlertMedia’s intuitive design enables organizations to rapidly and easily interact with employees to improve safety, security, and business continuity.
“We evaluated AlertMedia and quickly began using the platform for our critical communications,” explained Elizabeth Baker, Practice Manager at Integral Care.
“We had previously used email and manual phone trees to communicate severe weather and office closures, but needed a more consistent and comprehensive way to ensure our employees were receiving important messages.”
“Our Disaster Response Coordinator was thrilled when we began using AlertMedia to communicate important information due to the system’s ease of use and reliability.”
“The ease and speed with which she can use her mobile phone to notify almost 900 people about closures due to weather is outstanding.”
With a large number of its employees working outside of an office, Integral Care sought a solution that would allow them to stay connected with employees in remote and dispersed locations.
Effectively communicating with employees during emergency events gets more difficult when employees work remotely or are in the field.

AlertMedia’s mass communication software—which includes multi-channel communication, two-way communication, and geo-fencing—has allowed Integral Care to get in front of critical events and improve internal communication.
“With many of our staff serving our clients in the community, rather than in an office, we recognized there was an opportunity to strengthen our communication process,” added Baker.
“AlertMedia came highly recommended to us by another health service agency.”
AlertMedia enables organizations to send and receive unlimited messages with their audience via any and all channels, including custom channels that can be easily integrated using the AlertMedia API.
With innovative technology and a new approach to mass communication, AlertMedia has taken a leadership position in the market.
Hundreds of enterprise customers across all industries and in more than 90 countries are using the AlertMedia platform to protect their organizations, automate operations, and mitigate loss.
“AlertMedia is proud to have been selected by Integral Care, an organization that greatly values the safety and security of its employees,” said Brian Cruver, CEO of AlertMedia.
“AlertMedia’s mass communication platform will enable Integral Care to instantly connect with hundreds of employees in all pockets of Travis County—which spans over 1,000 square miles—so they can continue to provide optimal care to the more than 25,000 residents they serve annually.”
