Communication with your citizens is essential to every aspect of local government, so CivicReady ensures your capacity to communicate with your citizens is not limited. CivicReady allows you to send unlimited SMS text, email, Text-to-Speech (TTS) and voice recorded messages for emergency and routine notifications at high rates of speed. Multimedia messages can contain text, audio, video, and attached documents and may be saved and scheduled in advance to quickly launch an alert when
An easy-to-use, intuitive web interface lets you launch alerts from your laptop, smartphone or to all communication channels and devices you leverage via one workflow. Simply select the applicable contact paths, compose a message or upload a pre-designed template, and click send. Alerts will then be transmitted simultaneously to all of those selected.
Local government entities and emergency departments can easily and quickly communicate with public safety personnel and citizens based on their location using ESRI mapping technology. Simply draw a multi-point polygon shape on a map of your community to define the boundaries of your message, and CivicReady will notify everyone in your network within that area using their stored addresses. You can also filter groups to send to within the geo-targeted area.
By defining a geographical communication area and/or groups, you have the greatest flexibility in targeting communications, which means when citizens do receive an alert, they will notice and act.
