Louisiana Opts for e2Campus for Emergency Notifications

The state of Louisiana has selected Omnilert's e2Campus communications system for use as an emergency notification platform for higher education. Through the State Contract for Emergency Notification Services, Louisiana colleges and universities will be able to purchase the system without the need for an additional RFP, according to Omnilert.

The e2Campus system gives campus administrators a centralized interface for sending urgent messages to campus websites, digital signs, mobile phones, e-mail accounts, and RSS readers used by students, faculty, staff, and visitors. It also supports Alertus Notification Beacons, which are wireless units that notify people of campus emergencies via sirens and visual signals.

Through the contract, which applies to state colleges, state universities, fire departments, police departments, and other government offices, organizations have access to a full range of emergency communications services, including training; self-service and full-service access to the Web-based system; customer support; and "access to third-party devices such as mobile phones, home phones, e-mail addresses, RSS feeds, digital signage systems, PA systems, giant voice systems, alert beacons, personalized portals, school Web pages, and more," according to Omnilert.

The deal is expected to go into effect in early January. Further information can be found at the links below.
