Wayne, Pa. – May 29, 2012 – SunGard Availability Services today announced its crisis communications tool NotiFind® was named Notification System of the Year by the DRI International Commission. Winning this prestigious award demonstrates industry recognition of NotiFind as a tested, proven emergency and incident notification system.
SunGard’s NotiFind provides fast and effective communication targeting a variety of devices including phone, email and text messages to reach and interact with employees, customers and other stakeholders during a crisis or unplanned event. NotiFind delivers a comprehensive, automated approach that significantly improves operational efficiency and response times by effectively managing communications during the chaos and confusion experienced when a disruption or disaster occurs. This approach helps to increase the speed of recovery and to mitigate the financial impacts associated with business disruptions and other threats companies face.
“This award provides industry validation that NotiFind helps ensure organizations can deliver and maintain clear and concise communication during a crisis,” said Tracey Forbes, vice president of software business development, SunGard Availability Services. “Effective business contingency planning depends on a comprehensive emergency notification system. NotiFind enables our customers to keep in touch with key personnel, deliver critical messages to a wide audience, and send and receive vital information quickly.”
NotiFind powered by SunGard’s technology partners from Varolii® Corporation is completely scalable, supporting a business contingency plan whether customers need to notify tens or hundreds of contacts or hundreds of thousands of contacts. The system can be purchased standalone or as part of the SunGard Continuity Management Solution. SunGard provides contractually guaranteed SLAs for system availability and delivery, including uptime and minimum throughput in customer-selected timeframes.
