Marston's PLC Relies on Send Word Now to Communicate With Employees Across the UK

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 12, 2013) - Send Word Now, the leading worldwide provider of emergency notification and on-demand alerting and response services, announced today that Marston's PLC, the UK's leading independent brewing and pub retailing business, relies on its notification platform to communicate with managers and distribution sites across the UK. The company uses Send Word Now for all types of business-critical communication, from emergency notification, to updates on staff changes and messages containing time-sensitive shareholder information.

Since implementing Send Word Now, Marston's has been particularly impressed by the company's dedication and commitment to the UK market: "Even though Send Word Now is based in the United States, the company is incredibly responsive to our needs," explained Harriet Wood, Business Continuity Coordinator. "They are happy to implement UK-specific changes into their platform, and they regularly send senior managers and executives to UK trade shows."

"In the United Kingdom, emergency notification is a relatively new industry, and many companies here are just starting out," added Wood. "Send Word Now has a strong client base and is very experienced in large-scale alerts. This gave us reassurance that we weren't going to be a test case for how well the system works. We knew that the system already worked really well before we implemented it."

"We are very happy to be able to provide our services to Marston's PLC," said Tony Schmitz, President and CEO of Send Word Now. "As Send Word Now continues to expand throughout the European markets, we remain dedicated to providing the same service, security, and customer support that we have come to pride ourselves since our founding. We look forward to continuing to support Marston's and other companies in the region with their emergency communication efforts."
