AMTELCO Enhances RED ALERT Emergency Notification System's Multilingual Capabilities

MCFARLAND, WI--(Marketwire - June 3, 2009) - AMTELCO's 1Call Division is pleased to announce that the RED ALERT Emergency and Event Notification System now features greatly expanded multilingual capabilities, making it possible to efficiently notify a group of people regardless of language or dialect. These expanded multilingual capabilities feature 36 distinct languages and dialects that are compatible with the RED ALERT System. This list entails such widely spoken languages as Spanish, Mandarin, and French as well as the numerous dialects they are spoken in. This allows for use of the RED ALERT System in areas of the world that were previously not possible. By drastically expanding the number of languages from solely English, the RED ALERT System's incredible effectiveness can be utilized by businesses throughout the world.

"With the expanded multilingual capabilities, RED ALERT can overcome language barriers to effectively inform a group of people about an emergency. These capabilities are a direct result of the ever-expanding global market. By drastically expanding our language capabilities for the RED ALERT System, AMTELCO hopes to further grow as a world leader in the communications industry," stated AMTELCO President Tom Curtin.

Besides the ability to issue multilingual mass alerts via text-based messages (SMS text message, fax, email, and pager), this feature utilizes Text-to-Speech technology to assist with the notification process. Any message an administrator wishes to issue (in any of the 36 provided languages) can now be entered as text and converted into an audible phone message. This combination of mass notification and multilingualism makes RED ALERT the ideal choice for mass notification systems in any part of the world.
