BlackBerry Limited has introduced BlackBerry AtHoc Managed Service, which delivers the full featured BlackBerry AtHoc system as a service managed and delivered by BlackBerry. The service allows any organization, of any size, to quickly establish and maintain a crisis communications capability used traditionally by larger organizations.
Current global events have compelled organizations to reassess the effectiveness of their crisis communication program to protect people and business operations. With the need to manage business disruptions, forced remote work and return to work, companies now have a continuous requirement for ongoing critical communications.
Maintaining an effective critical communications platform, however, requires experienced dedicated teams and technical expertise that some organizations do not have. BlackBerry AtHoc Managed Service solves that problem by providing customers with 24x7 crisis management communications, alerts, and support, including the option to send alerts on the customer’s behalf, so that they can focus on their essential day-to-day business. Customers may also exchange notifications with other government agencies and commercial enterprises using the BlackBerry AtHoc platform. This network effect increases the benefit of the critical communications of all the participating organizations.
