Alert groups

Individuals to be alerted can be conveniently grouped together within NovaAlert. These groups in turn serve in a variety of ways as the basis for the entire alert.

Personal alerting

Personal alerting refers to the process of defining the communication paths by which each individual may be reached. The person’s name, rather than his or her telephone number, is incorporated into the alert. If the person is successfully alerted, unnecessary calls via other communication paths are automatically cancelled, thereby saving time during the alerting process.

Monitoring the number of individuals alerted

For each alert it is possible to define individually the number of people required to deal with the event. For example, if the remedying of a lift malfunction requires one person, NovaAlert cancels the alert as soon as the first person has acknowledged the alert. On the other hand,
in the event of fire alarms, all reachable individuals are summoned every time.

Time-dependant alert dissemination

Alerts are sent to various alert groups in a time-controlled manner. In this way, for example, different people can be summoned within or outside of working hours.

Alerting according to readiness list (on-call service list)

In the event of an alert situation, the individuals alerted are those who at that particular point in time are on the readiness list.

Text-to-speech

This option allows you to generate a voice text from text-based alert messages, e.g. from control systems. In this way alert messages from any character-based system can also be disseminated via the internal and external telephony.

Acknowledgement

In order to ensure that the right person has been successfully reached, an acknowledgement can be requested. 

Localization

The position of the person who triggered the alert is automatically ascertained and amended to the alert message itself. WLAN/DECT localization of the most current manufacturer is supported.

Administration

Mutations and evacuations can be executed directly in the alerting system or, with the help of Web Client, by using a computer in the network.

Password protection

The alerting system is one of the sensitive areas of your company. Mutations should therefore be performed only by authorized employees. A comprehensive password-protected authorization system prevents unauthorized access to the system.

Multi-language capable

NovaAlert is available in a variety of languages, and allows the simultaneous use of different languages during operation. The system can therefore be tailored to suit the language requirements of each operator – whether he or she is involved in administration or alerting.

Master data

Master data can be automated and periodically transferred to NovaAlert’s database from an external source (e.g. LDAP). Several independent clients can be created. Individuals, groups and alerts may be assigned to a single client, or all clients. 

Evaluation module

Alerts, connection details and system malfunctions are logged regularly; and you have easy and convenient access to this information.

Virtualization

NovaAlert can be operated on a virtualized server. The only prerequisite is IP interfaces to the alert in- and outputs.
