Envoy Introduces Emergency Notifications to Streamline Workplace Event Response
The new emergency notifications capability pulls from real-time workplace data so leaders can send tailored messages.
SAN FRANCISCO – Integrated workplace platform Envoy has announced the addition of emergency notifications to ensure safe, compliant workplaces.
Envoy customers of all sizes “can now communicate with everyone across their global workplaces through text messages, push notifications, and emails in the event of an emergency,” according to the company announcement.
As part of the Envoy Workplace Platform, the new emergency notifications capability “pulls from real-time workplace data so that leaders can send tailored messages to employees and visitors who are in the office when an emergency occurs,” the announcement says.
“Employees may be expected to be working in the office one day and working from home or flying to another office the next day, and in-office visitors often have their own shifting schedules,” says Larry Gadea, founder and CEO at Envoy, in the company announcement.
“Should an emergency happen on-site, you want everyone in the office to be safe and secure, not just the people traditionally ‘assigned’ to the office,” he says. “Given how complex this environment has become to navigate, particularly when you need to act urgently, we’re excited to make this easier through the redundantly collected insights available as part of our workplace platform.”
