Questions to Ask About Everbridge's Platform

If you’re looking for critical incident management software to help your organization mitigate risks and streamline your response to emergency incidents, here are some key questions to ask about Everbridge’s software before moving forward:

  • How do they enable you to respond in the most effective way to individual or widespread incidents through the use of real-time situational awareness?
  • Can they help you manage and respond to personal safety situations across the wide range of locations where you have duty of care i.e. indoor spaces, labs, satellite locations, campus areas, staff travelling domestically and internationally, all while providing a consistent level of care and service?
  • Do they offer command and control software that enables you to visualize the availability and location of your security team, openly communicate with them, coordinate their response, issue orders and see the result of those actions, and issue new commands–all in real time, with a common operating view?
  • Can they help your security team optimize the way they patrol designated areas and maintain a physical presence across your large, complex site?
  • Can they replace wired panic alarms or duress alarms at a much lower cost and provide a more effective solution that integrates with your team’s overall strategy?
  • Do they provide your team with the data and intelligence to respond to critical incidents up to 50% faster?
  • How can they help you plan, manage and coordinate security operations for special events i.e. sporting events, concerts and graduation ceremonies
  • Does the solution integrate with existing systems i.e. HR databases and IT single sign sign-on, with a scalable and secure API?
  • What solution do they offer to address the challenges and complexities associated with providing security inside a multi-story building? Can the solution pinpoint the exact floor, wing and room where an alert is triggered, providing a 3D view of where calls for help are raised, as well as the location of each officer in the building?
  • How do they enable you to enact specific protocols and policies tied to specific work areas such as secure labs to manage an effective health and safety?
  • Can they provide a real-time view of where key assets are e.g. building wardens and fire marshalls, so you can implement an effective emergency management process across multiple sites?
