Keeping people safe and informed
InformaCast is a mass notification system developed by Singlewire Software. A Solutions+ partner, InformaCast has been an integral part of CUCM for years. It has helped organizations across a wide range of industries deliver mass notifications through Cisco IP phones and other endpoints to enhance safety and communication during crisis events.
Now, InformaCast can integrate with two new Cisco tools to further expand the notification and collaboration abilities of the platform. When alerts are triggered using InformaCast, messages can include a link to the view a feed from the nearest Cisco Meraki Camera. Cameras can also trigger alerts through InformaCast using motion sensors. This provides more context for administrators during an emergency to help manage a response.
Responses can also be managed through Cisco Webex Teams. InformaCast notifications can be launched using shortcuts typed into Cisco Webex Teams to alert people about a situation. InformaCast can also automatically launch a Cisco Webex Teams space when a notification is triggered to bring together key stakeholders quickly.
