At a Glance | 4 Major Problems With Pagers

Antiquated Pagers Are Holding you Back …


OnPage Pager App

It goes without saying that the pager is antiquated, ineffective technology. Pagers have many flaws including their:

  • Dependency on an infrastructure that is dying out
  • Limited signal or range, preventing on-call responders from receiving pages outside of specific grounds
  • Lack of encryption and security
  • Inability to include contextual information of time-sensitive incidents

Unlike the ’90s, modern response teams require an intelligent solution that streamlines team communications while providing persistent mobile alerting to enhance incident resolution.

Pages Bypass Mute Switch

OnPage is one of the very few pager replacement services to override the silent switch and Do Not Disturb (DND) mode on iOS. This functionality is already available on Android and was long-awaited on iOS devices. The advanced feature ensures that all OnPage critical, high-priority mobile alerts are heard regardless of one’s volume configurations or system settings. Never miss a critical alert with the OnPage pager app bypass feature.

Select Message Priority

High-Priority Alerts

High-priority messaging comes with intrusive, loud and persistent eight-hour push notifications. Alerts mimic pager urgency and allow for full, rich text messages with secure file attachments. Designed for critical situations, these alerts assure the sender that the message has reached its destination and was read by the right person. Elevate critical alerts above the messaging clutter to ensure that events are responded to immediately.

Low-Priority Alerts

Low-priority messaging provides continuous, two-way communications and reply functionalities. Messages can typically be responded to with some delay without facing consequences. These alerts are ideal for non-urgent messaging, casual communications and practice updates.
