Viyya Technologies Launches Emergency Alert Information Portal

May 01, 2007

Viyya Technologies Inc., a developer and marketer of information management systems, has introduced its Emergency Alert Information Portal, an application designed to provide distribution of information--both on a routine daily basis and, in times of crisis, in an emergency mode. The core technologies, in development for more than three years, utilize the Viyya Information Portal and the Viyya engine to assist first responders, emergency management, and campus security officials in crisis situations, as well as provide alerts, notification, and situation updates to students, parents, faculty, administration, and campus security personnel.

The Emergency Alert Information Portal is a web-based application that personalizes and customizes routine information. Information originates from a variety of sources, including the internet, intranet, or local databases, and can be displayed, filtered, organized, and disseminated through portal technology and shared by the appropriate parties. Viyya Technologies’ proprietary “intelligence sharing” application can be utilized to monitor and share physical security intelligence, in situations that may involve terrorist activities, threats, harassments, or other dangerous or disruptive situations. The system instantly transmits alerts to thousands of users via email or SMS text messaging, and supports collaborative information exchange through chat rooms, discussion groups, and topic-specific forums.

The Viyya Emergency Alert Information Portal is built on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and can be run as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or installed locally in an enterprise environment. The Emergency Alert Information Portal includes a collaboration or information sharing layer, as well as optional items, such as Incident Event Reporting, Case Management, Mapping, Visual Data representations, Video and eLearning Modules, Emergency Notices, and Document Management Systems.
