From the Developer

Ping4alerts! is a mobile notifications and communications solution that leverages the location-based services of today’s smartphones and tablets to send rich multimedia alerts and messages to users based on their location and categories of information they opt in to receive.There are two components to the ping4alerts! solution:

  • Sender: a public safety agency or organization with a ping4alerts! license and Internet connectivity.
  • Receiver: anyone with the free ping4alerts! app on an iPhone, iPad or Android mobile device with cellular, WiFi and/or GPS connectivity.

Senders login to a secure, web portal to create, target and send alerts. Receivers simply download the free ping4alerts! app and select their categories of interest.

Using any web browser, the platform operator gains access to a secure, cloud-based web portal and enters alert text, adds accompanying rich media and chooses when and where to broadcast their message.

After downloading the free app and accepting its terms and conditions, the end user need only turn on location-based services to receive alerts anywhere in the world. When the end-user’s location-aware device enters or exits a geofence, the device instantly receives any relevant push notifications. This powerful mobile communications platform works without any personal information from end users.
