Everbridge Acquires Unified Messaging Systems

Creating the World’s Largest Critical Event Management Organization

We are excited to announce that Unified Messaging Systems is now part of Everbridge. Everbridge is the global leader in critical event management and enterprise safety software applications to help keep people safe and businesses running faster. Together, Everbridge and UMS will enable an unparalleled set of solutions to help customers assess threats, initiate and manage incidents, and notify an increasingly mobile population of stakeholders at a country level, and across the globe.

Everbridge serves over 3,700 enterprise customers worldwide, and over 800 customers in Europe. The company is extremely focused on making customers successful and has an over 95% customer retention rate. Its Critical Event Management software suite enables customers to improve how they anticipate, prepare for, and respond to the many critical events which threaten the safety of people, disrupt daily operations, and put brand reputations at risk. These capabilities work in an integrated suite to provide one comprehensive platform for managing critical events. Everbridge is publicly traded on the United States NASDAQ (EVBG).

Given the importance of mobile delivery internationally, our unique ability to message the mobile phones of anyone connected to a carrier’s cell towers significantly enhances Everbridge’s ability to protect people worldwide. The combined company will also benefit from our strong position as one of the leading mass notification providers internationally, with over 1000 customers, for example, in Northern Europe. Previstar, our crisis/emergency management product, is used for planning and resource management purposes by a number of major public safety agencies worldwide. Previstar will considerably enhance Everbridge’s crisis management capabilities.

Having sent over 2 billion notifications in 2017 to people in over 200 countries and territories, the Everbridge platform will now include the reach of UMS, which delivers more national alerting solutions than any other entity in the world and reaches over 500 million people with public notifications. Together we will provide the broadest delivery capability for critical communications worldwide.
