Onset Technology, creator of OnPage®, announced the release of its new and improved system which combines prioritized messaging and casual messaging in one secure application.  OnPage addresses the need for time-sensitive messages to rise above the chatter by uniting Pager-Like alerting capabilities with conversationally rich casual messaging — all wrapped in a security layer. The OnPage application, as it was originally designed, was Pager Replacement – a secure pager application on your smartphone. Customers relied on OnPage to send urgent alerts about a patient’s health status, a server outage, or a natural disaster. “During the Polar Vortex deep freeze of 2014, many of our healthcare agencies had specific requests for information,” said Kelsey Blackburn, Critical Incident Response Planner for COTS. “OnPage® enabled our partners to send a message and then receive a confirmation of receipt.

One thing, however, is clear — access to […] Read more »
