Cassidian Communications to demonstrate latest emergency notification technology at Disaster Recovery Journal Fall World 2013 Conference

FRANKLIN, Tenn., Cassidian Communications, an EADS North America company, exhibited its latest emergency notification technology at the Disaster Recovery Journal (DRJ) Fall World 2013 conference in San Diego, Calif., Sept. 22-24. Demonstrations of The Communicator!® NXT™ emergency notification technology will be conducted from booth #100.

Attendees learned first-hand how The Communicator!® NXT™ solution supports simple to highly complex communications strategies for business continuity and disaster recovery. More specifically, they saw the many enhanced capabilities of the latest version. These include two-way SMS (text messaging), additional language support, expanded security measures and single sign-on, among several other features.

Catherine Sozio, telecommunications specialist with New York’s Brookhaven Memorial Hospital, said of the solution, “The Communicator! NXT is a great product. It allows us to quickly and effectively communicate via various devices with personnel and others in critical situations, such as code alerts, and even non-critical events. Working with the company’s support team, who are very pleasant and thorough, the upgrade to the newest version was a smooth, well-timed process.”

Hundreds of public and private sector organizations worldwide rely on The Communicator! NXT solution for immediate, multi-modal notification and intelligent mobilization of specific individuals, groups or teams. The application also captures critical feedback, enabling faster, more informed decision-making in contingencies, and provides comprehensive reporting for a full audit trail.

Additionally, DRJ Fall World attendees got a look at Cassidian Communications’ Self-Registration Portal. This essential module allows organizations to easily collect necessary contact information from employees, contractors, visitors and others.

“DRJ Fall World is a significant conference for business continuity and disaster recovery professionals and provides us the opportunity to spend time with many of our clients,” said Mark Portanova, national director of sales, Cassidian Communications. “It also gives us another opportunity to educate the market on how our notification technology can significantly improve communications and quite possibly save lives.”
