Global Elite Group Announces Partnership with DigitalMailer, Inc.
Crisis Notification System Enhances Security Firm's Emergency Responders to Mobilize and Deploy within Minutes of Notification
New York, New York and Herndon, VA - August 3, 2009 - Global Emergency Management, a division of the Global Elite Group has chosen DigitalMailer's Crisis Notification System (Exigent911) to activate and mobilize their emergency response security force during times of national crisis.
According to William McGuire, President and CEO of Global Elite, this was a needed next step in the growth of our emergency security response division. Having responded in the capacity of a rapid response security force since hurricane Katrina and most recently hurricanes Gustav and Ike, we needed a system in place whereby our special ops department could quickly notify and activate our emergency response team members.
Our customers rely on us to have armed and unarmed security teams on location within 24 to 48 hours. The coordination of those efforts can be daunting and with this system in place, we are able to simultaneously reach out to hundreds of responders across the country with a text message, email and voice message in minutes of a task order to mobilize.
DigitalMailer and the Global Elite Group saw a natural fit between their contingency services, and began exploring where they could work together. Enter DigitalMailer's Exigent911 and its online notification system. Exigent911 enables the Global Elite Group to transmit urgent messages to its team of emergency responders in a matter of minutes and gather their availability and travel plans. The system trades labor-intensive calling trees and individual calling with a high-speed platform that automatically delivers messages to Global Elite Group's emergency personnel via email, text and voice to their laptops and smart phones. Exigent911's built-in response mechanism instantly keeps track of recipient responses and drives them to a secure web form to complete availability information.
Ron Daly, president/chief executive officer of DigitalMailer, says it's vitally important to plan for operational needs. "With hurricanes and other emergencies, there are a million things emergency responders need to worry about and always unexpected issues to deal with," he said. "In gearing up personnel to respond to an emergency, communication speed is critical. The Exigent911 system gets the word out immediately and, more importantly, can track responses."
