Emergency Communications Network (ECN) has announced that it has acquired Send Word Now. The combined companies have rebranded as OnSolve.
According to ECN, through this acquisition and the 2016 acquisition of MIR3, OnSolve is “uniquely positioned to address the accelerating demand for standalone software-based communications solutions, and notification and alerting functionality that can be integrated directly into other critical business systems.”
Fueled by an increasingly complex threat landscape and need for reliable risk management and business continuity solutions, the emergency mass notification services (EMNS) market was $2.2 billion at the end of 2015 and expanding at a 17 percent compound annual growth rate to $4.9 billion by 2020, as estimated by Frost & Sullivan. The merger of Send Word Now into the OnSolve product set extends the company’s market leadership position and accelerates its ability to capture this projected growth in demand.
The acquisition brings together Send Word Now’s enterprise-class emergency notification system, capable of transmitting tens of thousands of voice and text messages in minutes, with ECN’s advanced emergency communication platform for real-time notification and response. With last year’s acquisition of MIR3 and its ability to enrich enterprise solutions and software with multi-channel and real-time communication functions, OnSolve customers now have a single provider “capable of meeting all current and future needs”.www.onsolve.com
