May 14, 2024

AlertMedia, the world’s leading provider of threat intelligence, emergency communication, and travel risk management solutions, today announced a new integration with Microsoft Teams, adding to its extensive catalog of reliable communication channels. The integration, available immediately worldwide, further enhances organizations’ ability to communicate with employees during emergencies and critical events, no matter where they are in the world.

“We are pleased to integrate Microsoft Teams into our channel offerings as an additional way for organizations to ensure reliable, efficient emergency communication,” says Christopher Kenessey, CEO of AlertMedia. “It’s crucial for our customers to reach their employees where they are most active at work—for many, that is within the Microsoft Teams platform—to provide urgent information as soon as possible.”

Microsoft Teams works seamlessly with AlertMedia’s full suite of threat intelligence, emergency communication, and travel risk management capabilities, allowing companies to respond to emergencies faster from a single interface. Additional benefits of the AlertMedia-Microsoft Teams integration include:

  • Engage employees on the go with the Microsoft Teams mobile application: With a majority of users utilizing the Microsoft Teams mobile app, organizations have a powerful method of communication to improve reach and engagement with employees, allowing them to stay informed and connected during emergencies.
  • Enhance international deliverability: As country-specific regulations and carrier limitations evolve, success rates can vary when using traditional SMS-based communication. Augment existing channels and enhance deliverability by sending text-based messages using any cellular data network or Wi-Fi connection.
  • Protect sensitive information with enterprise-grade security features: Microsoft Teams is developed with privacy and safety in mind. The platform offers advanced security and compliance capabilities by default, such as two-factor authentication, single sign-on, and end-to-end data encryption, ensuring protection and confidentiality.
