Singlewire Announces the Release of InformaCast Director for Regional Notification

New Application Enables Organizations to Federate Multiple InformaCast and InformaCast CK Servers Across Disparate Networks to Send Regional Notification

MADISON, WI--(Marketwire - September 1, 2010) -  Singlewire Software (, developer of innovative voice applications centered around secure, fast, and reliable mass notification, today announced the release of InformaCast Director, a new product designed to connect and federate multiple instances of InformaCast and InformaCast CK to send regional notification. InformaCast Director extends the functionality of the full-featured, network-based InformaCast and InformaCast CK products that provide mass notification, emergency communication, overhead paging, and physical security to businesses, healthcare facilities, government agencies, universities, colleges, K-12 schools, and more.

"InformaCast Director is an immediate and cost effective way for an entire county or state to establish a true, on-network regional notification system via the InformaCast platform," states Paul Shain, CEO of Singlewire Software. "It leverages existing networks and systems already in place to send notification."

InformaCast Director utilizes the security and redundancy of the region's IP data/computer networks to send notification to remote locations, triggering an on-network InformaCast notification to any combination of Cisco IP phones, IP speakers, computer desktops, analog paging systems, email systems, media display monitors, and other network devices. In addition, notification can also be passed to off-network notification systems including SMS text messaging and external email systems.

"This has the potential to be revolutionary in the way notification is done," states Ken Bywaters, Executive Vice President of Product Development at Singlewire Software. "If there's an emergency -- like a weather warning, chemical spill, or a severe accident -- that threatens the entire region, a public safety official can log into InformaCast Director and initiate a broadcast message that will cascade through all federated notification networks, systems, and endpoints."

InformaCast Director is a software solution, and can be deployed as part of an organization's data and voice IT infrastructure. It can be ordered through registered partners of Singlewire.
