“The addition of SwiftReach and its FCC-licensed carrier class network gives us best-in-class message delivery, which provides customers with unmatched service levels. Rave is most needed by our customers during emergencies and we continue to protect them by leading the way in reliability,” said Todd Piett, CEO of Rave, in a statement.
According to Rave, the combined company will serve nearly 5,000 customers across state and local public safety agencies, education and health care organizations, utilities, federal agencies, and a wide spectrum of corporate clients.
“Bringing together SwiftReach and Rave is hugely valuable to our customers,” added Kevin Alward, CEO of SwiftReach. “Rave has a sterling reputation in the marketplace, both in terms of commitment to customers and its outstanding technology set. We believe it’s a perfect match.”
Rave says the addition of SwiftReach’s product set makes it the only emergency and mass notification provider that owns and operates its own telephony network. This fully-redundant network employs four data centres across North America.
The addition of SwiftReach’s SwiftK12 solution to Rave’s existing offerings will provide communities a complete K-12 school safety communication platform. The combined suite of products will enable users to engage parents through emergency alerts, solicit anonymous tips with Rave EyeWitness and improve collaboration with 9-1-1 and emergency services utilizing the Rave Panic Button.
