A SnapComms' Panic Button triggers instant full-screen emergency alerts to employees' computer screens or mobile devices. These urgent notifications override all other applications in use by employees, so staff quickly become aware of a developing crisis.
Designed specifically to be used during emergencies, the SnapComms' Panic Button enables organizations to act quickly and minimize threat.
By creating a series of pre-configured emergency notifications, no time is wasted to get your message out when an urgent situation arises or any time of duress.
It's impossible to predict when an emergency will strike. But when it does, fast, accurate communication out to employees is paramount.
Suddenly, the ability to get a warning message in front of at-risk staff becomes critical: every second counts during this highly-stressful time.
The SnapComms' Panic Button empowers 'at-the-scene-employees' / first responders to immediately publish an emergency message, straight from their PC or mobile phone - without having to ask someone else to do so. By removing this step, saves valuable time and reduces risk.
Real-time reporting provides critical metrics such as delivery and receipt of emergency alerts - so you know which staff have seen the message. You can even request employees to respond to confirm they are OK.
A Panic Button is potentially used for:
- Unmissable - The emergency notifications appear on all screens, over full screen applications and over locked-screens.
- Publishers - Specify which staff can use the Panic Button or give publishing rights to everybody with a SnapComms App.
- Targeting – Emergency notifications published via the Panic Button can be pre-configured to be sent to the whole organization, groups of employees, organizational units or employees in a particular location. Existing Active Directory groups can be targeted or groups of individuals can be created manually.
- Delivery Options - As well as sending an emergency alert to PCs, the warning can be sent to mobile phones along with a push notification
- Reporting - Real-time metrics reveal which employees have seen the emergency notification
- Auditing - full records of which front end staff published the emergency alert
