Email in an emergency – are you sure?
Do you find it frustrating when you send an urgent email and no one bothers to respond? It’s nothing personal but it is inconvenient and not ideal for critical situations – where time can really matter.
The fact is the shear volume of email has made it unsuitable for events that require a fast response and email expansion has not yet plateaued!
If this is a familiar concern let Callmy Email Connect ensure your most urgent emails never get ignored again.
For you nothing changes, you still fire off an email but instead of it being lost in a busy inbox, it’s delivered directly to the Callmy Alert app. The app is installed on your users smartphones, tablets and desktops and stands apart from their email.
As Callmy Alert is reserved for emergencies and special circumstances, response time improves and positive outcomes start to become the norm.
The service is secure, cost effective to deploy and includes an audit log of all message activity.
So the next time you need the team to jump on a conference call, mobilise, or respond to a rapidly challenging situation, look no further than Callmy Email Connect.

Callmy are pleased to announce they will be supporting the Security in Education Conference taking place on Tuesday 13 November.
Security standards and the quality pastoral care play a significant role in the decision where to study, made by young people and their parents. Universities with a reputation for safety and student support enjoy greater recruitment success both domestically and internationally. Despite this, the sector has an inconsistent and fragmented approach to security and wellbeing.
The Security in Education Conference is your chance to discover how your organisation can drive up standards to deliver the best possible student experience. Understand how to support students suffering with anxiety or depression, learn strategies for combating problems such as sexual harassment on campus and see how pioneering universities are creating a safer learning environment.
There is a chance to hear presentations from a range of speakers and to talk to suppliers exhibiting at the event. These include Callmy, who will be showcasing their latest emergency notification developments, which are underpinning security in the education sector.

Whilst the most severe attacks are still relatively rare, it is vital appropriate plans and procedures are in place – these may help to overcome a variety of other incidents too.
The first part of this free to attend webinar, presented by the highly respected security expert Tom Huntley, will help education professionals understand major incident security and practical measures that can be employed to deter, detect, deny, delay and defeat – the 5D’s principle.
Communication is a key element in the 5D approach but evolving threats now need evolving communications. In the second part of the webinar we present effective emergency communication planning and how the Callmy Alert solution is helping the Education sector communicate in a crisis.
The webinar takes place at 14.30 on Tuesday 2 October. Please click HERE for more details and to register.
Supporting the delivery of critical communications and security procedures, the University of Reading are deploying Callmy Alert.
The University has over 17,000 students based on three main sites in the UK and an international campus in Malaysia. In order to deliver critical communications and the reassurances of a secure environment, the University selected Callmy Alert based on its ease of use and cost effective deployment. It was also felt that a service with an end user app would suit the student demographic whilst also, and most importantly, ensure a faster response than using conventional forms of messaging.
“We are delighted the University of Reading are deploying the Callmy Alert service” comments Tony Watson, CEO of Callmy Ltd, ” and we look forward to supporting their successful deployment over the coming months”.
Another great of example of a university promoting the use of Callmy Alert to help support their security for staff and students.
Callmy are delighted to announce the Wiltshire College Group will be implementing the Callmy Alert service for the start of the 2018/19 year.
Wiltshire College was founded in 2002 by the merger of Chippenham Technical College, Lackham, Trowbridge and Salisbury Colleges. With three satellite centres based in Corsham, Devizes and Warminster, four student run farms and a specialist motor racing facility at the Castle Combe circuit, there was an overarching need for an effective emergency communication service to compliment the College’s security procedures.
Callmy Alert was selected as the preferred solution due to its ease of use and delivery. Being app based also ideally suits the student demographic and ensures a fast response to urgent messages – a great alternative to email and without the cost of SMS too!
The College is also benefiting from realtime reporting via the Callmy Alert Management Portal. This highlights what impact messages are having, collates message response statistics and can even locate users who may be in dangerous situations – a consideration for student travel and placements.
The college is deploying Callmy Alert to their 9,975 students and 975 members of staff. Consideration is also being given to evolving the service to help fulfil other emergency communication requirements.

Callmy were pleased to sponsor the University of Salford 2018 Create Student Awards. The award ceremony was held at Emirates Old Trafford, the home of Lancashire cricket and celebrated the achievements of students graduating from the School of Arts and Media.
Callmy were hosted by Trevor Jones (pictured right) who is the University’s Head of Security and a leading light in the new ProtectED Code of Practice, which is the gold standard for assessing the work done by universities to look after students’ safety, security and wellbeing. With this in mind, Salford deployed Callmy Alert to support the delivery of emergency communication during security situations and other incidents affecting the smooth running of University – on the day of the Create Student Awards a Callmy message had been rapidly delivered to staff and students, alerting them of a fallen tree blocking access to one of the main car parks.
Salford are now in the process of planning for their new student intake and are also upgrading their Callmy Alert service to support the personal SOS capability. This will help to deliver lone worker protection, student safety and travel security for study abroad initiatives.
Callmy would like to thank Salford for their continued support and also for their hospitality during the Create Awards 2018.
