QUOTES

"Our customers rely on us to have armed and unarmed security teams on location within 24 to 48 hours. The coordination of these 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, email and voice message in minutes of a task order to mobilize."

-William McGuire, President/CEO, Global Elite Group

"After only 15 minutes of instruction, the process of creating a notification was incredibly simple and very user friendly. I have since been able to go back in and add contacts and telephone numbers for voice and SMS notifications, as well as additional email addresses. When it comes to the nature of emergency response, we donít have the luxury of only being able to communicate during regular business hours. With Exigent911, I can log on to the system remotely anytime day or night and alert our entire database of responders without having to call upon other resources."

- Peter Harlick, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Global Elite Group

"During natural disasters and other crises, there are lots of details to worry about and many unexpected issues that arise. In gearing up personnel to respond to an emergency, communication speed is critical. Our system gets the word out immediately and, more importantly, tracks message delivery and responses."

- Ron Daly, President/CEO, DigitalMailer

"Regardless of your industry, emergencies can present communication challenges. This is particularly true when traditional communication methods are not accessible or reliable. But with email alerts, mobile texts and voice messages used in any combination, the people you need to reach can access messages and respond appropriately using any communications device at hand, no matter where they are."

- Rob Banker, Executive Vice President/Chief Information Officer, DigitalMailer
