Status Solutions adds mass dialing

Status Solutions has added mass dialing to its Situational Awareness and Response Assistant (SARA), the company announced.

This will let providers make large volumes of both emergency and non-emergency calls. Healthcare organizations may use this for weather warnings or evacuation.

Alerts include data about the unfolding situation, approximate location and instructions based on an organization's predefined emergency/mass notification protocols (i.e., modes and actions), the company said.

"The telephone call is still an effective means of communicating information, especially for organizations that need to contact a large number of constituents," explains Mike MacLeod, president of Status Solutions. "True mass dialing with the SARA solution ensures outreach through landlines and smartphones, providing real-time alerting and redundancy, which are both important in life safety and security situations."
