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.
