Similar to an Amber Alert in its ability to deliver a message to a mass audience instantly, but without the audible alert, our text alert service can be targeted by Group, Jurisdiction, Municipality or other category and is relevant to stopping the spread of COVID-19 through contact tracing.
We provide subscription based, instant, two-way text message communications for emergencies and/or ongoing conversations to subscribers without asking them to install apps, check voicemail or search a website. Our service is used for emergency notifications as well as for contact tracing, alerts, reminders, announcements, reporting, safety, etc. But it’s better because there are no privacy concerns plus we offer a two-way communication platform allowing subscribers to reply back with a response immediately.
We provide the ability to instantly have someone subscribe to a specific list and capture their location, name, cell number and date and time of text, all information that may become vitally important in the weeks to come. Once someone texts a keyword to a specific phone number to subscribe to that list, they can be easily contact traced at any time and informed about exposure, told to quarantine, asked to call a number or click a link to complete a form.
For example, a restaurant asks every guest or party to subscribe and three weeks later, the restaurant is informed that a guest who was in their establishment one week previously contracted COVID-19. The restaurant can instantly alert all patrons to self-quarantine and provide Public Health information specific to their situation. Within minutes, the restaurant could provide the Province with a list of contact names and cell phone numbers to begin contact tracing efforts.
Any Municipality, Festival, Event or business could use the service in conjunction with gatherings of more than 10 people, servicing a continuous stream of residents, guests and event attendees. Every tourism business, retailer, restaurant, Day Camp and Sports Organization could benefit from our contact tracing service and the extra level of security and reassurance it provides.
The ability to immediately begin contact tracing could reduce transmissions and potentially save lives as everyone would be contacted and informed 12 to 72 hours sooner.
