Secure Document Storage Now Available

Callmy are pleased to announce that secure document storage is now included as part of the Callmy Alert service.

Callmy Alert provides an effective solution for crisis communication, which now also includes secure document storage as an integrated part of the service.

Customers can upload important documents, via the Callmy Management Portal, which are encrypted and securely stored in the ISO 27001 Microsoft Azure cloud.

This creates a useful asset as relevant documentation, such as business continuity plans, emergency procedures and cyber security policies, are available from within the Callmy Management Portal, where the teams responsible for managing crisis communication have immediate access.

Being cloud based also means that documents are always available even if the corporate network is compromised or unavailable.

Document Storage is free to all users of the Callmy Alert service and is covered by a fair use policy.

Please contact us for more details.

Callmy release 1.5.0 now available

We’re pleased to announce the launch of our latest release of software. 1.5.0.

This further enhances our location based services and introduces new levels of control for registered users. 

Location Monitor

The location based aspects of Callmy deliver significant benefits to help overcome a variety of challenges. Organisation may want to to simply know where their staff are to ensure they are not in harms way, or mobilise team members to take action or go to assistance.

End users now have the option to share their location via the Callmy app. Their location is then visible, as a pin on a map or at a street view level, in the Callmy Location Monitor.

Clicking on the pins reveals which service(s) the user is following, when their location was last updated and the type of device they are using. Registered users can also share their contact details.

The map has a search facility to help find either locations or individual users.

This capability has global reach and once users are located, Callmy can deliver appropriate messages, gather responses and to direct users appropriately.

Registered Users

Callmy now has the ability to register end user details and store them, as encrypted data, within the service. This provides added security and restricted access via two factor authentication.

The Callmy Management Portal will display information on whether the user has registered and how many devices they have registered. Individual users can also be blocked from the group to make sure they do not receive any messages or notifications. User details can also be easily edited, added or deleted.

New release provides the response you require

At Callmy we haven’t got a monopoly on good ideas! We use an agile development model and an ethos of listening to our customers to drive our development.

Our new release, which is now available, will therefore include:

Message Acknowledgement

Your Callmy administrator, via the Callmy Portal, can select an “acknowledge” button to be displayed within a Callmy message. The recipient, via the Callmy App, clicks this to confirm they have understood, or are acting on the information sent. The number of acknowledgements is displayed as a statistic in the Callmy Portal.

Respond with Details

The administrator, via the Callmy Portal, can also select, an “enter your details” button to be displayed in the Callmy Message. A message may ask the recipient to add their details if they are responding to a situation, need assistance, or require further information, etc. Within the Callmy portal these details are captured as a report for each sent message – a useful feature if you are trying to mobilise a team or recruit staff to fill a post.

Respond with comments

Once again, via the Callmy portal, the administrator when posting a message can request for end users to leave a comment regarding the message. These responses are instantly available via an on-line report in the Callmy Portal.

Delete Report

In order to provide a complete inventory of all messages, a separate folder is displayed, in the Callmy Portal, to provide access to an archive of deleted messages. Deleted messages are also removed from the end users Callmy app – useful if the information is incorrect or a situation changes.

What else is new?

We’ve finally said farewell to the Callmy “Arrow Strike” – this is the audible alert which notifies the follower there is a new message. We’ve replaced the Arrow Strike with a sober, but more acoustically effective, series of “beeps”.

Simplified the process of adding a Following

In the previous version end users had to set the ID of the channel they required to follow and also specify a name. With the latest version the end user simply has to add the Callmy ID and the name is reconciled from whatever the Callmy Administrator has specified. This makes the end user experience easier and also introduces more consistency in terms of the service name convention.

 

Please look out for more new features which will be made available later this year.

In order to provide value for our customers and deliver the best end user experience, we’ll also be announcing new capabilities and integration with third party applications, provided by market leading vendors.

 

Callmy – the new release!

We are delighted to release the latest version of Callmy, which introduces some important new features and customer benefits.

These included a new text message capability and an on-line management portal.

Free text messages

The Callmy text message module includes the following:

  • Free message delivery –
avoid expensive SMS charges.
  • No limit on message length – avoids constraining your messages to just 160 characters.
  • Speed – send >3000 messages per second.
  • The response you require – messages arrive in the dedicated Callmy app, which stands apart from the traditional lines of communication.

The Callmy Management Portal includes the following:

  • Secure SSL login
  • Message activity view – real time statistics on the number of message opens. Enables you to see if your messages are being effective.
  • Follower view – details how many followers your Callmy 
services are achieving.
  • Message count view – the number of messages sent and 
date/time information of when posted and sent.
  • Read, Listen and Delete feature – enables messages to be audited and withdrawn if no longer relevant.
  • Scheduling – either post your Callmy voice and text messages immediately, or schedule a time to send.
  • MP3 upload – upload MP3 sound files to maintain quality and reinforce corporate/brand image.
  • Administration view – Manage administrative access to the Callmy portal and reconfigure/delete accounts as required.

 

For urgent and important communication, we believe the new features further move Callmy towards the first viable alternative to Social Media, email and SMS.

Callmy will help greatly improve messages response and still remains one of the most cost effective mass notification services available on the market today.
