Jerry Steinhauer, Chief Technology Officer

As one of the members of the team that developed the first version of our InformaCast software, I understand how critical it is to simplify the way we communicate in order to keep people safe. That principle has guided our entire product architecture for more than 20 years, and it’s why we integrate with so many third-party devices. We want organizations to be able to use the equipment they already have to help spread the word during a crisis. More important, we want our customers to have confidence that their solutions will deploy when needed most. That’s why our teams test everything rigorously to ensure customers have reliable tools that deliver the information needed to stay out of harm’s way.
