Desktop Alert has receivedÂ a new certificate of networthiness from the U.S. Army for the latest version of the company’sÂ mass notification system designedÂ to provide warning and instructions to personnel in the event ofÂ aÂ critical situation.
Version 5 of the Total Alert SystemÂ worksÂ to contact installation computer users and require them to confirm receipt of desktop alert messages that can be used for emergencies such as inclement weather, fires, active shooters and attacks, Desktop Alert said Wednesday.
The platform is designed to support the unification ofÂ inter-agency public address systems, e-mail, digital signage, telephone and text messaging into a consolidated web-basedÂ Defense DepartmentÂ emergency operation center interface.
Desktop Alert founder Howard Ryan said the U.S. Military Academy at West Point backedÂ the company’s effort to obtainÂ the CoN renewalÂ that will aidÂ the company’sÂ mission to help protect leaders with technology.
Ryan added that the U.S. Coast Guard National Capital Region and U.S. Navy Post Graduate School have joined the company’s clientÂ listÂ thatÂ includes the U.S. Air Force, Army, Army and Air National Guard Enterprise.
Desktop Alert’s technology is also included on the Defense Information Systems Agency‘s Approved Products List.
