e-IVR Community Notification is an automated outbound notification solution. Spread your message by telephone, email, or fax. The broadcasts draw from school-supplied phone, email, or fax lists. Multiple lists and multiple messages make possible a vast range of uses (ranging from emergencies or school-closings, to upcoming events, etc.). The call recipient can be given the option to transfer to staff during available hours. Incomplete calls can be logged for reporting and retried later. This type of notification allows the school to blast information to parents, teachers, staff and employees outside, as well as during, normal school hours. In the case of an overnight weather event or emergency, the system could be initiated remotely, hours before staff would typically be on-site.
