Improving Organizational Resilience During Sudden Disaster and Extreme Weather
OnSolve has made advancements to make it easier for organizations of any size or structure to scale adoption and usage across the global enterprise while making improvements to usability. These releases range from advanced search and filter capabilities to manage complex organizational structures to a simplified Quick Alert send process that reduces the amount of time and clicks it takes to send an alert. This level of customization allows organizations to tailor their system to their needs – whether simple or complex, improving trainability, speed and scale across organizations with employees at various technical proficiency levels.
With situational awareness being essential to modern critical event management, OnSolve has also launched key critical communications capabilities for organizations leveraging the OnSolve Platform to stay informed of a potential threat and ensure organizations keep their employees safe in the wake of a disaster, including:
- Risk Alerts: Through a robust integration with The Weather Company®, Risk Alerts brings situational awareness to OnSolve Critical Communications. It allows employees to receive automated location-based critical event alerts from civil emergencies to severe weather, eliminating the need to manually send an alert once a threat is identified. Alert categories include missing persons, 911 outages, civil danger and civil emergencies, as well as weather alerts, such as heat advisories, floods, fires, wind and local storms. Organizations can customize the type of alerts they want to receive or include unique call-to-actions for specific scenarios, and if they’re in need of a more powerful solution, they can gain access to AI-powered Risk Intelligence through the unified OnSolve Platform.
- Life Check: Life Check is critical for organizations tasked with protecting lone worker employees, such as truck drivers, service technicians, social workers, or property managers. With Life Check, organizations receive an automated emergency SOS if an employee is working onsite alone or in a hazardous area and does not respond after a designated amount of time. Once the designated countdown session expires, an automated emergency SOS is sent to their organization, letting them know something could be wrong. Organizations are able to configure what number they want to dial when triggering an SOS – whether a specific team, GSOC or directly to emergency services.
- Quick Alerts: Quick Alerts enables risk and disaster teams to send a simple alert in real time to employees or designated groups. The functionality is a complement to OnSolve’s advanced alert send process, where additional communication controls are needed for more complex workflows and communications. With Quick Alerts, organizations can instantly create messages, select the preferred devices to send the message, select which individuals will receive the alert and add any response options from one single page in under 60 seconds.
To keep critical communication seamless and efficient when a crisis strikes, OnSolve has also announced new platform integrations with market-leading SaaS providers which customers commonly use. Integrations with ServiceNow, Envoy, Azure AD, Kisi, ensure contact information stays updated and accurate and critical messages are received by the correct individuals, whether they are in the office or working remote.
