Colleagues,

Having just participated in California's great shakeout we have been looking at additional methods to alert our students, staff and faculty.The Alertus Desktop is one we are looking at currently and I am wondering if anyone out there has had any experience with the product. Thank you.

We've been using this for about a year and it works well and we have gotten a lot of positive feedback. When it goes it happens quickly and often beats the text message. This is tied into our e2campus notification so it adds another way to get the word out. We still encourage people to register their cell phone but this helps. For on-campus it is pushed out through our AD environment to labs and most staff desktops (some faculty but most faculty aren't tied to our central AD). Optionally, students and others can download the client (I did this) and it works well on mac and pc. jack

FInally took a look. Did some where things with the message but I got the gist.  Our biggest problem was exposing our Alertus server to the public which this would require and the fact that the mySQl they were using was about 100 years old.

At the time it was unclear if e2Campus could handle two Alertus end points but I think they could now. Maybe we throw up a VM for it? Should not be too bad to do that. Have to make sure about the multi-Alertus end points though.
