Organizations Rely On Blast Voicemail During Hurricanes And Natural Disasters

During the recent hurricane season, many organizations called on Client Instant Access to assist with navigating the logistical nightmare of communicating to workers, customers and residents to ensure safety and a rapid response.

Resort clients benefited greatly from BVM during the recent natural disasters.  Using BVM, resorts were able to notify guests, workers and local residents of the impending hurricane, as well as any emergency procedures that needed to be followed.  Resorts also were able to notify these groups of nearby shelters, help centers and resources if they were displaced or in need of assistance.

For a concentration of resorts in the Caribbean, a hotbed for hurricane activity, Blast Voicemail is extremely useful to enact in a safety action plan.  For example, if a hotel has 3,000 guests that they need to inform of an evacuation, one person can easily record a personalized voicemail that will reach every guest.  This decreases the chance for a mistake, which can be deadly in times of dire crisis.

Construction and Utility Companies see massive increases in repairs needed during hurricanes.  There are multiple divisions and employees to notify in order to deploy repair teams to work on restoring various utility services.  BVM streamlines this entire process so that these utility companies can communicate with clients and workers to ensure a smooth, safe and swift recovery period.

When natural disasters occur, residents can often lose power for days and even weeks, and it is important to make sure that residents have services restored as soon as possible.  Electrical companies use BVM to inform customers of an estimated timetable for the power to come back.  Keeping people up to date is extremely important when resources have been impaired, and CIA gives companies the power to inform.

Another industry that can benefit from BVM during a natural disaster is education.  If power is out, then accessing the Internet or email may be difficult for students.  BVM bypasses this problem, and will leave a message in a voicemail box.  This maximizes the chance that a student or parent will hear a timely alert, and not venture to school that day.

Ultimately, one can only prepare so much for a natural disaster.   Blast Voicemail ultimately seeks to minimize the damage, and to ensure the safety of as many as possible during a catastrophic storm.
