EDINBURGH, Scotland, Oct. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- HSL Mobile, a company providing SMS text messaging to businesses, have today announced that their AlertBroadcast for Business Continuity solution could help save businesses thousands of pounds over the winter period and allow a more effective business continuity plan in a crisis. AlertBroadcast for Business Continuity allows organisations to get a critical message rapidly to large or small groups of people simply by sending one simple SMS from a mobile phone.
Lynne Prowse, Managing Director, said: "We are pleased to be announcing AlertBroadcast for Business Continuity today as long-term weather forecasts for winter 2018 begin to predict that Britain should prepare for the coldest and harshest winter for a decade. This could cause severe disruption for thousands of businesses and organisations across the UK." Whilst the Met Office advise it is too early to predict with certainty what winter 2018 holds for the UK, with the loss of revenue in the billions for one day of snow closures during the winter of 2017, it is not too early for organisations to be prepared.
HSL Mobile's AlertBroadcast for Business Continuity solution (https://hslsms.com/alertbroadcast) could help save organisations thousands of pounds and also allow them to communicate more easily when they need to quickly get a message to staff and customers. The AlertBroadcast solution allows organisations to get a message out quickly to groups of people simply by sending one simple SMS text message from a mobile handset without the need for a computer or Internet access. This solution can greatly assist organisations in ensuring that business continuity plans are effectively executed, thus ensuring that loss of productivity is minimised.
Severe weather can cause significant disruption, but HSL Mobile's AlertBroadcast for Business Continuity can help organisations to manage this disruption by giving them the ability to communicate with employees and other stakeholders direct from a mobile phone. Once a text message is sent, HSL Mobile immediately sends the message to a distribution list of mobiles associated with the organisation. There can be multiple distribution lists for employees and other stakeholders, so the message can be tailored for different groups of recipients. In some emergency situations you need to ensure staff are safe and so the "Roll Call" feature of the service allows the status of people to be reported.
Lynne Prowse continued by stating, "The weather we have been faced with in recent years seems to be a continuing trend and so all organisations must prepare for this. As part of their business continuity, organisations should have ways in which to communicate effectively so to ensure the safety of staff and continuity of business. We believe that in emergency situations, HSL Mobile's AlertBroadcast for Business Continuity should be an organisation's most trusted communication tool. It works when there is no data or Internet access available for apps and is extremely effective for communicating with large groups of people almost instantly."
