September 24, 2007 By

Send Word Now, a leading provider of on-demand alerting and response services, today announced the ability to initiate alerts for both emergency and everyday situations via BlackBerry smartphones in the field. Send Word Now is the first company in the industry that can mobilize alerts remotely using the BlackBerry.

As a result of its partnership with Wallace Wireless, the world's leading supplier of wireless crisis communication software for BlackBerry, Send Word Now has implemented Wallace's WIC software into its alerting and response service. WIC is the leading wireless software solution for fast, dependable content publishing and incident response.

"As mobile devices are increasingly relied upon as essential tools for communication during emergencies and everyday uses, it is important that alerts can not only be received from anywhere, but initiated from anywhere as well," comments Rob Moffat, president of Wallace Wireless. "Today's on-the-go executive needs the ability to access the right information and people in order to properly coordinate, from anywhere at anytime."

The WIC product suite complements and enhances the Send Word Now service by delivering dependable access to emergency contacts, secure instant messaging, reliable information distribution, planned response to incidents and simple, and secure application management from a user's BlackBerry device. Send Word Now's CEO and president Tom Shoemaker adds, "With the initiation of alerts from BlackBerry devices, Send Word Now customers can now rely on even faster response and better access during critical situations."
