Send Word Now® to Provide Critical Support for Organizations in Downtown Toronto During the Upcoming G20 Summit

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 17, 2010) -  Send Word Now, the leading provider of on-demand alerting, response, and incident management services, announced today that several local and international organizations plan to use its communication and incident management software during the Toronto G20 summit on June 26 to June 27, 2010, a high-profile meeting of national leaders and economic specialists from around the globe. These organizations will use the Send Word Now platform to communicate and coordinate with senior management, crisis responders, and employees in downtown Toronto and beyond. They plan to send alerts to instantly update stakeholders during emergency situations, and to use Send Word Now's push conferencing feature to instantly bridge senior management officials into a conference call on the fly. The Send Word Now service can help organizations and communities to communicate quickly and effective and can ultimately help save lives, should unexpected events take place. 

"Send Word Now is pleased to be able to provide support and assistance to key customers in Toronto during this important global event," said Tony Schmitz, President and CEO of Send Word Now. The G20 Summit represents one of the largest security events in Canadian history, and will demand a considerable amount of resources from both public and private organizations. Organizations operating in Toronto, particularly in the downtown area, will be particularly susceptible to business disruptions and property damage throughout the weekend.

"We recommend that all organizations operating in Toronto work with a recognized notification expert, such as Send Word Now, to ensure that they have an airtight communication and incident response plan in place in advance of the G20 Summit," noted Schmitz. "It is critical that organizations maintain open and effective communication lines with employees, clients, partner organizations, and local officials, and Send Word Now is a simple and cost effective solution that easily meets this need."
