Send Word Now Launches New Desktop Alerting Capabilities

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) - Send Word Now, the leading worldwide provider of emergency notification and critical communications services, announced today the release of SWN Desktop Alerting, a powerful new capability for warning employees through customizable pop-up computer alerts. The optional new offering is fully-integrated into Send Word Now's award-winning online emergency communications platform.

With a small application installed on recipients' Internet-connected devices, administrators can launch text-based alerts that automatically display on employees' computer screens. Desktop alerts are desirable anytime immediate, disruptive warnings are required including situations such as computer/email virus alerts, building or floor evacuations, and severe weather notifications.

In addition to tailoring the look and style of alerts, administrators can target precise geographic or physical locations (such as buildings or floors), or send notifications to groups of people meeting specific criteria. Administrators can further pose questions and receive recipient feedback directly from the alert window utilizing the company's integrated "Get Word Back" functionality.

The new desktop alerting capability provides Send Word Now clients with another authoritative notification method in addition to other available means such as email, SMS and voice calls.

"SWN Desktop Alerting gives customers the power to turn every connected desktop into an on-screen warning and situational awareness device," said Lorin Bristow, Senior Vice President of Marketing. "This new offering provides business continuity, physical security, and resiliency professionals with greater peace of mind by increasing the likelihood warning messages will be received and acted upon even when employees are at their busiest."
