Not sure your organization would benefit? Learn who uses the RedFlag Notification System and what the benefits are.
The importance of communicating is all around us. Communicating with our families and friends is significant in maintaining healthy relationships and a breakdown in communications is often the cause of many misunderstandings, confusion and even arguments (you know what I’m talking about). Communication at the office—where many of us spend most of our waking hours—is critical not only to our success as employees, but to our satisfaction as employees as well.
Mass notification systems are being implemented in more and more organizations every day as the need for critical communication systems is revealed, unfortunately, by mass shootings, acts of terror and workplace violence. Mother Nature’s wrath in the form of hurricanes and tornadoes and massive flooding has also brought the importance of crisis communications to the forefront.
Mass notification system technology allows not only a critical communications component but, as we’ve discussed many times, brings simplicity, convenience and reliability in distributing everyday information. Okay… you’ve heard us talk about this a lot. Today, I’m going to talk about the types of organizations that have actually implement the RedFlag Notification System, how they are using it and what benefits they are seeing as a result. Let’s get started.
- Commercial Real Estate:
A world-wide financial and professional services firm that specializes in commercial real estate services uses the RedFlag mass notification system at nearly a hundred of its shopping mall properties. Mall operators use RedFlag to effectively communicate to multiple tenants in a simple and convenient way—whether the message is an urgent one or is simply a general announcement. RedFlag streamlines the communication process for mall operators and property owners.
- Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT):
One of the nation’s largest mall real estate investment trusts (REITs) uses RedFlag as an all-inclusive way to communicate to their shopping malls’ diverse tenants. The RedFlag mass notification system lets mall operators keep tenants informed about changes in hours of operations, news of new construction projects affecting entrances and exits, chances of extreme weather affecting safety and information on possible threats of violence. No matter what the message, RedFlag improves overall communication between mall operators and tenants.
- Network Marketing:
A leading health and wellness company uses the RedFlag mass notification system to communicate to their massive network of independent consultants who distribute products through direct sales. RedFlag allows the multi-level marketing giant to disseminate product updates, general information and podcasts in a simple and effective way to an incredibly large audience.
A group of healthcare companies uses the RedFlag mass notification system for internal communications with employees who work in its assisted living centers. Messages about inclement weather, facility operations and general information are distributed to nurses, therapists, social workers, management and support staff in an extremely effective way—especially for a company whose employees spend a lot of time moving around caring for residents and patients.
- Petroleum Refiner and Marketer:
A Dallas based refiner and marketer of petroleum products uses the RedFlag mass notification system to communicate to the management of its independent and company-owned retail stores. RedFlag notifications help the petroleum supplier streamline business-to-business and internal communications by providing a simple, effective and convenient notification solution. Notifications can be sent to all retail locations in specific regions based on the content of the message—whether it be about an emergency situation, extreme weather, a policy change or other general information.
The local Dallas chapter of a national youth organization recently used the RedFlag mass notification system at a big event to help keep participants and volunteers safer. Event goers were encouraged to self-subscribe to receive text messages informing them of last minute event updates and alerts about any unforeseen events. RedFlag was an effective communication tool for the organization’s event where participants, guests and volunteers were widely dispersed.
From global conglomerate to a local non-profit, the type of business or organization doesn’t matter. Communicating is a universal matter no matter the industry, location or size. The RedFlag mass notification system is about connecting people via channels that many keep within an arm’s reach 24 hours a day. How do you communicate?
