MIR3 Notification System for Colleges Passes Major Milestone

MIR3 Signs 100th Campus; Becomes Leading Emergency Notification Solution for Universities and Colleges

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - December 4, 2007) - MIR3™, the technology leader in Intelligent Notification (IN®) solutions for global enterprises, today announced adoption of its notification technology by the 100th college that has signed up for service. Other campuses using the MIR3 IN platform include University of Pennsylvania, University of Chicago, University of California - San Diego, University of California - Davis, St. John's University (N.Y.), Queens College and Kingsborough College.

This milestone demonstrates that MIR3 has become a trusted, strategic campus safety partner and highlights the value that educational institutions place on MIR3's multimodal notification approach, which enables simultaneous use of multiple types of communication devices to alert and instruct students, staff, faculty and parents during an emergency.

Multimodal communication is particularly important within a student population. According to a recent survey by the Pew Research Center, more than 70 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds own a cell phone and 92 percent of them use text messages regularly. Additionally, MIR3's system is the only notification system on the market today which allows for true two-way texting, real-time reports and integrated incident management -- critical features when an organization needs to quickly mobilize first-responders and officials during crises.

"With the signing of its 100th college, MIR3 has become the clear and compelling choice of universities seeking the fastest, most reliable emergency notification system," said Amir Moussavian, MIR3 president and CEO. "The fact that we achieved this milestone in less than twelve months solidifies our leadership role in the global notification market and validates our belief that a multimodal approach is essential for the collegiate emergency notification market."

According to Joseph Tufano, vice president and CIO at St. John's University, "We considered numerous notification vendors, but in the end, we chose MIR3 for its strong product offering. After a one-month implementation, we had an incident on campus during which the system played a crucial part in helping us to control this emergency situation."

MIR3's notification technology is also a de facto standard among organizations outside the education sector. Currently, eight of the top 10 Fortune 100 companies use MIR3 IN solutions, as well as the US Air Force, Homeland Security's National Medical Response Teams, the LA County Department of Health and numerous other local and federal government agencies.
