What Are EMNS Tools?

Per Gartner, “EMNS automates the distribution and management of messages to relevant stakeholders for localized events and regional and catastrophic disasters across multiple channels … use cases include organizational crises, business-critical operations, IT outages, and public and personal safety.” 

Organizations no longer have to rely on manual communication, rummaging through lists of contacts when an incident occurs. EMNS tools automate the crisis notification process and can send critical messages to voice, email and/or SMS simultaneously. BlastIT, OnPage’s mass notification system, is designed to broadcast messages to these channels and even deliver voicemails if recipients do not answer the phone.

Growing Interest in EMNS Tools

Reducing recovery time has always been a top priority for organizations when disasters occur. EMNS tools enhance disaster communications and allow teams to coordinate with each other to mitigate the impact of an event. Mass messaging can help reduce the time it takes to restore key business applications and resources. Simply put, EMNS services can strengthen business continuity management (BCM) strategies.

Organizations are also facing growing pressure from stakeholders that make the case for fast, relevant emergency communications. Due to the ever-increasing demand, more organizations are investing in EMNS tools to improve their crisis communication processes.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the work-from-home transition brings its own set of challenges. As IT outages occur, many organizations are unable to reach remote workers and inform them of the emergency. EMNS tools provide an alternate, immediate method to reach and apprise the workforce of the critical situation.
