Omnilert, the leader in emergency notification systems, has announced a new service called uNotify for quickly and easily sending routine and operational notifications via text message, voice calls, and email. uNotify is available today for purchase with plans starting as low as $45 a month for existing Amerilert and e2Campus customers. Live demonstrations are available in e2Campus booth #1155 at EDUCAUSE in Anaheim, October 16-17.

"Once clients discover the power of our uAlert emergency notification system, they eventually want to use it for non-emergencies like recruitment messages, departmental or classroom updates, collection and account balance notices, and other routine messages," explained Ara Bagdasarian, CEO at Omnilert. "However, that creates a unique set of technical, financial and regulatory challenges for the customer and their recipients."

uNotify finally solves these challenges by offering an affordable messaging solution that is not subject to many of the regulatory restrictions set forth by the mobile industry. Specifically designed for routine messages, uNotify features scheduled messaging, multi-channel delivery, dynamic groups, international support, and massive scalability to ensure fast, reliable delivery.

uNotify can be used to solve many unique communication needs. Bagdasarian explained, "One of our customers is a large university with an NCAA Division I football team. They were struggling with how manage a fluid crowd of 30,000+ people if plans had to change, such as postponing a game two hours due to unexpected severe weather. Seeing the success they had with their emergency notification system, the customer wanted the ability to instantly send text messages to all these people without mixing recipient lists. They purchased uNotify on a Wednesday evening and had it operational by Saturday's game. The client is better prepared for the unexpected and relieved to have the service in place."
