Don't Be Limited to One Type of Message - InformaCast Lets You Send Them All

When you are sending a notification, the type of message you use is just as important as the message itself. Here’s an explanation of the four main types of messages and how each one applies to your notification needs:

  • Live: Live messages are great for everyday pages. Simply pick up the phone or hit the speaker button, select your recipients, and broadcast your message. The message goes out as you say it and is received immediately. Live messages are fast, simple, and effective for daily communication.
  • Ad Hoc: Ad hoc messages can be re-recorded if you mess up. This is critical, because it allows you to take time to consider and edit your message before you send it out. Erroneous information can be very dangerous given how connected people are. Prevent rumors with a little bit of editing.
  • Dynamic: Dynamic messages are good for an emergency that is in progress. A dynamic message includes up-to-date, specific, or changing information such as date, time, location, and weather advisories. Dynamic messages are often used in conjunction with pre-recorded messages to customize existing information.
  • Pre-Recorded: One of the most important things you can do to keep you and your people safe is prepare. Life is unpredictable, and we must expect the unexpected. Having a variety of pre-recorded emergency notifications can help save lives when time is of the essence. If you have InformaCast, when an emergency strikes, these messages can be triggered both automatically and via human intervention like pressing a panic/duress button.

InformaCast allows you to choose from all four message formats. Send live pages via IP phones to make a quick announcement. Send ad hoc messages when you have an important announcement that can’t be messed up. Use a dynamic message when it is important for you to communicate up-to-the-minute information. Store pre-recorded messages to protect you and your people in the event of an emergency. With InformaCast, you don't have to be limited to one type of message.
