Quick, Widespread Notification
We don’t need to tell you statistics or horror stories about campus and workplace security threats. Unfortunately, the need for clear, practical security and emergency measures is just part of doing business today, whether you are a retailer, resort, school, or weekend fun run.
One of the best things you can do to prevent and respond to potentially threatening situations is have your organization prepared with an effective way to communicate if and when that critical moment comes.
At Cahoots, we commonly hear stories about dangerous situations occurring on one floor of a church or office complex, while employees on the other two floors never even knew something was going on. That just can’t happen.
Seconds count in such moments, and you never know who is going to be the one to first spot signs of trouble. What if every person in your organization could just hold a button on their phone and instantly alert and tell everyone about an emergency? Now they can.
Real-Time Voice Communication
With the innovative Cahoots app, your entire team is able to talk on the go. With the touch of a button, you can speak live with any group or person in your organization, without having to carry walkie talkies, use group texting, or set up conference calls.
If trouble strikes, the distressed person simply switches his or her Cahoots screen to Emergency Mode, which displays an Emergency Button. When he/she talks using the Emergency Button, several important things happen instantly:
- All team members in Cahoots:
- hear an alert sound
- see a red alert displayed in their history bar
- receive a push notification if their app is backgrounded
- hear their team member’s voice describing the situation
- All cell numbers on your custom emergency contact list:
- automatically and instantly receive a pre-drafted emergency alert text
Not only does Cahoots get the word out fast that an emergency is occurring, but it also provides a live channel for talking through the situation in real-time. Download Cahoots today to see how it can improve your organization’s emergency preparedness.
