Empowering Small Safety Teams with Mass Engagement
Omnilert Engage allows mass engagement through group triage, the ability to repeatedly subdivide people into manageable groups, and dynamic messaging.
People find themselves in varying situations during an emergency, which requires specific instructions to best guide each individual to safety. Similarly, those individuals can provide intelligence as the situation dynamically unfolds. Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult to open a dialog and manage the incoming information from a large group of people under duress.
Traditional emergency systems are limited to one-way broadcast or a two-way function that forces organizations into 1:1 communications, which clearly does not work in real-life situations with thousands of people. New product releases, such as Omnilert Engage, allow mass engagement through group triage, the ability to repeatedly subdivide people into manageable groups, and dynamic messaging, whereby each group can be individually messaged with information or queries most relevant to them.
This approach allows rich interaction across a large group to be executed even with a small safety team. Engage offers location-based selection and messaging, so groups can be handled differently based on their whereabouts and the associated threats. Given the dynamic nature of emergencies, Engage provides administrators with a dashboard to visualize and map responses in real-time. omnilert.com
