GenAlert Real-Time 911 Alerting Now Supports Mitel!

by Nathan April 21, 2021

Genesis is excited to announce our GenAlert real-time 911 alerting solution is now compatible with Mitel Phone Systems!

Many Mitel users already use our Call Tracking solution for managing staffing resources and telephone use (and misuse), and can now add real-time alerting to greatly improve on-site awareness and emergency response time. The issue with standard call-accounting-based alerting solutions is that they only notify you once the call has completed (hung up).

Since real emergency calls are rarely terminated prior to emergency services arriving on-site, staff often have no idea anything is happening until help is already on-site. Since staff are the closest responders - and are certainly more familiar with the premises - they need to be the first people to know when there's an issue requiring emergency help. Response can then start immediately, staff can coordinate and both attend to the emergency and be ready to direct Fire, Police and EMS services prior to their arrival. 

Mitel users can receive alerts via a combination of desktop-based alerts, in-app notifications on Android & iOS devices, emails, SMS messages, and custom integrations with strobe lights and other equipment. Combining all these paths, it's nearly impossible for your staff to not be immediately aware there's an emergency in progress that requires their help.

 

When adding in our call tracking & reporting solution and our app-based incident tracking & mass notifications, the overall solution provides the most comprehensive reporting, tracking, and alerting solution for Mitel users of any size.

Genesis Supports Microsoft Teams 9-1-1 Notifications + Call Tracking & Reporting

by Nathan April 16, 2021

Genesis Systems has recently added support for Teams in both our GenAlert 911 Alerting and Call Tracking & Reporting solutions!

Now, locations using Microsoft Teams (either solely, or as a component in their telephony environment) can extend their real-time emergency awareness and greatly improve on-site emergency response time.

You simply cannot be too informed in the event of emergencies, and this is why GenAlert provides flexible, real-time multi-path alerting which includes emails, SMS, desktop alerts, triggering on-site physical equipment, in-app alerts, and even integrations with social media platforms.

Likewise with call tracking; many Teams users complain about the reporting and data natively available, especially when attempting to generate consolidated reports for business units and specialized reports, not to mention users who rely on call analytics in day-to-day operations.

Genesis Call Accounting & Tracking provides Teams users with flexible, easy-to-use reporting that can be customized to your requirements, delivered on any schedule you need, and can even alert you to misuse or account compromises. Genesis has been the standard for many of the largest organizations for over 35 years, and this legacy continues now for Teams users.

Genesis Team: Still Here, Just Working from Home

by Nathan March 25, 2020

In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and do our part in helping 'flatten the curve', Genesis staff have transitioned to working remotely from home. Along with diligent social distancing and diligent hand washing, we believe these measures will help and hope others able to do the same will follow.

Rest assured, we are still operating at full capacity and access to your hosted solutions, updates, our support staff and services, and sales team will be completely unaffected. Our hope is that these measures are only needed temporarily but we are fully set up and prepared to operate remotely as long as is required.

Feel free to contact Genesis Systems at 1-888-993-2288 should you have any questions or concerns.
