Callmy and R3S Global – a new alliance

Callmy Ltd and R3S Global are pleased to announce they have formed an alliance to provide complimentary services for their customers.

“As a developer of a mass notification and emergency alerting service” comments Tony Watson, Managing Director at Callmy, “we understand the challenges of the evolving security climate. There is the constant cyber threat, the weather is getting more unpredictable and the war on terror has not been won. Callmy Alert provides an excellent solution to help organisations communicate in a crisis but it relies on business continuity and emergency plans being in place. This is why we welcome the opportunity to work with R3S Global”.

R3S Global have great experience of working with a variety of sectors, including education, entertainment, finance and government, as well as supporting events such as the 2012 Olympics and last year’s World Athletics Championships.

Chris Scott, co-founder and Director at R3S Global, stated “we aim to encourage clients to be properly prepared for complex challenges on high profile projects. We offer support in delivering integrated responses, often with multiple stakeholders, providing a fresh and innovative approach to risk management, readiness and resilience”.

R3SG deliver a full range of services that includes an initial assessment of risks, the planning and delivery of strategic and operational plans, and crisis management support through readiness testing and exercising.

Tony Watson continues, “it is the delivery of an effective strategy, complimented with the appropriate technology, which is helping organisations to deliver the business resilience required by the security demands of the 21st Century. This is why we welcome the opportunity to work with R3SG and hope our customers will take advantage of their knowledge”

UEA_NEW_BRAND_MagentaBirmingham_logo.svgAs the academic year draws to a close, the Higher Education sector is now starting to consider how they can continue to provide a secure environment for their communities. Effective communications are central to their plans and both the University of East Anglia and The University of Birmingham have chosen to deploy Callmy. UEA are using Callmy to support their campus security operations and The University of Birmingham are rolling out to their entire University estate, which spans some 30,000 users. Both universities realise in an emergency it is vital they have access to a dedicated communication channel, which stands apart from email, SMS and Social Media – Callmy’s app based solution provides the ideal option. Ease of use, price and not requiring a database of contacts are also key factors.

Callmy & CESG – it’s “Official”

How-to-secure-your-computerWorking in partnership with Microsoft, the Callmy service is now accredited to hold and transact public sector data for business conducted at the OFFICIAL level of Security Classification. This is a consideration for all UK Public Sector organisations, which have a need to communicate securely – this may be for public safety, the mobilisation of staff, multi-agency working, or day to day operations at home or abroad.

Microsoft’s EU datacentres are based in Dublin and Amsterdam and comply with ISO 27001 standards to provide comprehensive data processing provisions to UK customers. They also incorporate EU Model Clauses – Europe’s data protection regulations.  Microsoft is the first – and so far only – company to receive this approval, which followed an extensive review by the Article 29 Working Party.

The accreditation, awarded by CESG, builds on Callmy’s secure delivery model and compliments recent integration with the market leading EMM supplier, MobileIron.

Callmy now with a BANG!


BANG are pleased to announce they have selected Callmy as their new communications partner.

BANG are a not for profit group of Business Continuity Managers from Government and some of the UK’s leading businesses. BANG meet on a regular basis to discuss and debate current Business Continuity issues and to learn through shared experience. BANG’s activities also raise money for worthwhile causes, which include; the British Red Cross, Help for Heroes and CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young)

Steve Yates, BANG Chairman, commented, “It was proving increasingly difficult to maintain communications with our 1,900 members and this became an important issue we needed to address. Using Callmy will mean we no longer have to maintain a contact database, which was difficult when our members email and phone numbers seem to change on a regular basis. With Callmy members simply download the Callmy app and chose to follow us – simple”.

BANG have a vibrant LinkedIn group, which is a valuable resource for general information and for discussion around current business continue themes. However, this is restricted to only sending one message per month to the entire group, creating a problem if there is urgent information to communicate. Steve continues, “ Callmy messages also have the benefit of being free to deliver, are not constrained by length and we can ask for our members to respond if required”.
