IPAWS Webinar: Alert Origination Software Provider Demonstration

Wednesday, May 20, 2020 @ 1:00 PM EDT

We continue to see new alert origination software products integrate with IPAWS and we are happy to support review and demonstration of these products for you. It’s a great way for you to determine your alerting requirements and assess vendor capabilities to meet those needs.

Please join the IPAWS Program Management Office (PMO) for an Alert Origination Software Provider (AOSP) Webinar on Wednesday, May 20, 2020, at 1:00 PM ET for product demonstrations followed by Q&A. This AOSP webinar will feature representatives from:

  • Genasys
  • Rave Mobile Safety
  • Singlewire
  • Titan HST

IPAWS PMO staff member Jody Smith will lead the 90-minute webinar which will begin with a brief overview of IPAWS and the scenario to be used for demonstration by our presenters. The webinar will then be turned over to the respective presenters from each provider. Each presenter will have 20 minutes to provide product overview and demonstrate their IPAWS integration, followed by Q&A.

This webinar will be recorded for future viewing; however, we encourage your live attendance to maximize the time for questions and answers with the presenters.
