AtHoc Receives ‘Positive’ Rating in Report from Leading Industry Analyst Firm for its Mass Notification Offering

SAN MATEO, Calif. (March 30, 2010) – AtHoc, Inc., the pioneer and leader in network-centric unified emergency mass notification systems, today announced that AtHoc received a rating of “Positive” from Gartner in its January 2009 report titled, “MarketScope for Emergency and Mass Notification Services” based on evaluation of AtHoc IWSAlerts™.

AtHoc’s IWSAlerts third-generation mass notification technology transforms an organization’s existing IP network into a state-of-the-art mass notification system by:

a) communicating rapidly to all IP-connected devices;

b) integrating and unifying disparate existing mass notification capabilities including networked devices, mobile devices, telephony, sirens, radio and display boards;

c) providing bi-directional communication allowing collection of information and feedback from all personnel; and

d) achieving enterprise-level scalability and processes.

The result is the most effective enterprise-wide mass notification capability with the best cost to benefit ratio.

David Burns, Emergency Manager for University of California, Los Angeles said, “An IP-based approach to mass-notification has delivered significant value to UCLA, unifying our disparate existing communication systems and adding modern digital notification over IP and mobile networks. UCLA’s MNS system (BruinAlert) recently won the GSN Homeland Security Award and the California Emergency Services Association Gold Award for its state-of-the-art emergency alerting system.”

“We believe the positive ranking by Gartner is a significant validation of AtHoc’s leadership position in the mass notification market,” said Guy Miasnik, AtHoc President and CEO. “Our customers come to AtHoc because their requirements demand the best technology and support available. AtHoc’s continuous innovation, coupled with our commitment to our customers and thorough understanding of their evolving needs, are our core strengths. Proven success in environments as diverse as an army base in Iraq, to a university campus in Los Angeles, is testament to AtHoc’s innovative vision for mass notification technology.”
