When disaster situations occur – alerting masses in a targeted and reliable manner with Serinus
Mastering scenarios professionally
Whether critical events affecting a company premises or incidents shaking entire cities – in these cases, a well-planned alarm and crisis management system is necessary for a mass alert of all people affected. Serinus was developed to react quickly using a reliable platform that can individually and flexibly adapt to the respective requirements, to safeguard the people concerned from further harm.
Serinus’ Smart Communication Platform supports companies and public organizations in informing key players or groups using their usual communication channels and, based on geodata, in starting emergency conferences and initializing emergency response measures as well – in a reliable and simple way with just one click or by the Serinus Mobile App. Within a few seconds, relevant information can be spread across large numbers of people.
Applications for mass notification
The alarm logic is designed to quickly inform according to the specific situation the appropriate number of persons or task forces based on departments, functions or skills. The most suitable communication channels and escalations are automatically selected for each employee, considering the selected scenario.
A mass alert can be performed simultaneously or sequentially using all available communication channels. These include notifications by voice call, mobile app, SMS or e-mail. The required communication channels can be defined individually, but also based on either teams or alarms, according to scenario and priority. Alerted people can provide feedback via all channels.
In emergency situations every second matters, which is why our solution is designed for high performance as a geo-redundant cluster platform. This allows you to reach up to 250,000 people within one minute using different communication channels. Redundant network and provider connections combined to several geo-redundant data centers ensure high availability of the entire solution.
You can’t afford to take any risks, when it comes to sensitive issues like data and security. Multiple independently run tests and audits prove that the Serinus Cloud Platform meets the highest standards in this connection. It doesn’t matter if it is the secure encryption of your data or the strict compliance with data security according to the European protection and privacy regulation (GDPR).
All feedback and status information is displayed in real time via web browser or mobile on your smartphone. Get an overview of positive, negative and open feedbacks. In this way, you can keep track of the status of your mass alert and the availability of your task force in real time.
The circumstances may change at any time. Serinus helps you to react quickly to the latest developments. Our messenger allows you to dynamically alert employees with the required skills at any time. In addition, the system builds reflexive groups with positive or missing feedback based on the acknowledgement of an initial alarm. These groups can be used for further alerts.
With Serinus, you are prepared for the worst-case scenario. You can easily create complex alarm scenarios for cases of emergency and test alarms. Serinus also supports you in updating your crisis contact data. These can also be entered autonomously by department, team or employee thanks to the multitenancy. Upon request, Serinus takes over the reminder function for data updates. Also the import from higher-level databases can be set up in a few clicks.
In many critical situations, location-based alerting saves people and task forces who are close to the injured person / the crisis area. The Serinus Mobile App can be used to locate the person in case of an emergency. Besides the location via GPS, fine location via BLE beacon is also available for in-house alert. Instead of alerting all the profiles in the system, only the people actually concerned and task forces are notified.
Optimized for MCI alerting
A train derailment, a bomb attack, a massive accident on the highway – MCI events or incidents involving many injured people represent a medical and organizational challenge for rescue teams, hospitals and first responders.
Stay on top of things with Serinus – the alarm and crisis communication platform supports you to quickly and efficiently implement rescue measures, and to alert and coordinate first responders. Thanks to your preparation, Serinus is able to alert the right number of qualified task forces according to the situation and the goal. Our alarm algorithm ensures that neither too many nor too few task forces are mobilized.
