Liberty University Introduces New Mass Notification System Based on AtHoc IWSAlerts Platform

November 06, 2012

Liberty University, the world's largest Christian university and the largest university in Virginia, has integrated the AtHoc emergency mass notification system into campus life.

The new mass notification system, which is based on AtHoc IWSAlerts platform, provides flexibility to meet current and future notification needs of the dispersed 6,800-acre campus.

"The system's flexibility and scalability will help us meet our current and future notification needs, and will easily integrate new technologies as they are introduced," said Matt Fleming , Liberty manager of network services, in a statement.

The AtHoc IWSAlerts platform's open API (application programming interface) enables the university's IT department to develop additional solutions as needs arise.

"The API was a 'must-have' item for us, and AtHoc demonstrated its value and performance better than anyone else," said Fleming.

"We wanted as few products as possible to fulfill our mass notification requirements, and AtHoc's unified, end-to-end solution fit that need squarely,” he said.

Fleming said that AtHoc satisfies the demanding defense and homeland security requirements, which gives the university a strong sense of security.

Dubhe Beinhorn, vice president, public sector at AtHoc, said that safety has become a top priority for dispersed, campus environments, where rapid response and ease-of-use are essential for protecting lives and property.

"We applaud Liberty University for recognizing how important it is to help safeguard personnel, students, and staff, and to keep families informed during emergencies in which their loved ones are involved. Liberty joins other universities like UCLA and Texas A&M in utilizing the AtHoc EMNS," said Beinhorn.

Officials with AtHoc said that the new system will protect all buildings across the dispersed campus, including a church, primary and high schools, godparent home (a facility for unwed mothers), and an independently operated medical care organization.

Fleming expects a very high percentage of participation by the end of the year.
