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”.
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 are proud to be sponsoring Cardiff Metropolitan University’s entry in the Monte Carlo Or Bust challenge.
