"Good System for Contacting Mass Groups via Text, Call, Email etc"

What do you like best?

From a programmer's perspective, We upload an extract to Rave with all active students' and employees' emergency information. When the police station sends a notification, they use the list of people in the extract we create from the database.

From a user perspective, it's a great way to keep me informed of what's going on on or near our campuses. Whether it's weather alerts, or shootings or stabbings, we are informed through Rave

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I dislike. This is a great tool to utilize for our college campus.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I can only speak from the perspective of working on a college campus. This is a great tool to have. There was once an incident of a stabbing in a parking garage near our downtown campus. Not only were we notified when the event happened, but we were also alerted when the suspect was in custody. It doesn't seem like a big deal, but its always nice to know what's going on in your place of work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It solves the problem of relaying messages to a large group of people.
