Covid-19, active shooters, inclement weather…

These are several of the reasons why many organizations are contemplating implementing a crisis alerting or mass notification capability.  The problem is, there are so many companies providing different variations of crisis alerting or mass notification platforms that it might take weeks to sort through even a reasonable number of providers, and then can you be sure that you have identified the ones most qualified to meet your specific circumstances?
