Cistera Networks Delivers Enhanced Communication Capability for Birdville ISD

PLANO, TX--(Marketwire - August 19, 2010) -  Cistera Networks® (PINKSHEETS: CNWT), a leading provider of enterprise application platforms and engines for unified communications, announces the delivery and implementation for Birdville Independent School District (BISD). Both have come together to provide this Texas school district's schools with a Unified Communications solution that is flexible, scalable and cost effective. The combined partnership of Cistera and Birdville ISD's Information Management Services department (TIMS) has created an environment that helps to guide and protect the areas approximately twenty four thousand students.

"It's all about safety," stresses Julie Wallace, TIMS Executive Director at the school district. She explained that Cistera solutions are an integral part of her mission to provide her customers (teachers, faculty and administrators) a secure environment so they can focus on teaching and educating. Her services need to be seamless, integrated, efficient and cost effective. Her team partners closely with the schools' resources to meet their communications needs. Her team has been successful, impart, because of the integrated solutions from Cistera.

Birdville uses several of Cistera's Convergence Solutions in their Unified Communications environment. Event Alerting and Notification solutions have specific features to assure students, faculty and the administrators are safe and their welfare is protected. With Cistera RapidBroadcast, "All principals receive instant email notification of emergency 911 calls via the smart phones they carry," says Darrell Maxey, Telecommunications Technician for the ISD. Cistera consulting and services resources customized this solution to specifically meet the school district's requirements. "With their previous legacy communication systems, emergency response notifications simply did not exist. Now with each 911 call, 7 to 10 individuals are notified immediately that an emergency call has been made," says Maxey.

The integration and centralization of all Cistera's solutions on one single platform "allows us to have a central point of management, saving us time and money," explains Maxey. "The centralization of Cistera solutions utilized by the school district takes away the headaches of maintaining multiple systems at multiple locations." The ISD can manage the ISD's entire time scheduling from a central location resulting in enormous time savings.

The partnership between Cistera Networks and Birdville Independent School district has brought a richly functioning and highly efficient Unified Communication system that enhances the safety and lives of the school district's teachers, administrators, students and parents. "We are extremely pleased and love the products," says Wallace. A rich communications environment allows the ISD to meet its mission to "...engage and encourage students and staff every day through meaningful work in a safe and caring environment."
