Unified Messaging Systems AS (UMS), an Everbridge Company, has more than 1,200 customers worldwide reaching over 500 million people with our systems for public notifications. The company provides alert solutions that enable both public and private entities to communicate with customers and citizens through various channels before, during and after of both unexpected and scheduled events. We use multiple technologies to leverage existing infrastructure of telecom operators when sending critical messages.
Our solutions can help save lives and reduce damage to property by providing important information for the right people, through the right channels and at the right time. The mobile phone is currently the most frequently used communication channel worldwide and is therefore the most effective platform to inform and warn people. UMS has pioneered location-based mobile alerting on a regional and total country scale.
As a pioneer in the development of advanced systems for critical messages, we have many unique patents known in the industry for their technological and lifesaving capabilities. We can point to having deployed more national systems than any other company in the world, having developed national warning systems for countries including Sweden, Singapore, Netherlands, Greece, Cambodia and two coastal states in India. UMS has a strategic partnership agreement with UNISDR and has assisted countries and multilateral organisations in developing frameworks for crisis management and notification.
