Emergency Alert System 2.0

Alert Everyone Everywhere With One ButtonEver since the tragedy at Virginia Tech, more and more companies are making dispersing emergency alerts on college campuses much easier. Virginia-based Omnilert achieves this by leaving no communication device or medium unturned. The company's new e2Campus service allows alerts to be sent to campus Web sites, mobile phones, e-mail addresses, social networking sites like Facebook, RSS feeds, Blackberrys, pagers, and even special electronic billboards -- all with the click of one button.

No additional networking or special hardware is required and clients don't require additional software. The system runs roughly $1 per user per year depending on the number of users covered, and the special e-signage runs $3,195.
