  • “Change is the only constant in life.”

    This popular quote has been attributed to Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher born in 554 BC. Much more recently, in 2020, Mark Cuban, the billionaire entrepreneur, said, “The only constant of business is change.” How true both statements are! In fact, at no other time in recent memory have they been truer than now. We experienced a lot of changes in 2020.

    , Manager, Government and Education Solutions

    The ongoing pandemic has forced schools and districts to change the way they operate. Depending on local guidelines, the new school year looks different than any other previous year. Some schools are reopening with precautions in place, others are choosing hybrid models, and some are conducting all classes online. As schools resume either in-person or via remote learning (or a hybrid of both), mass notification systems can quickly and effectively keep stakeholders and communities informed. This has become even more crucial recently because information changes rapidly and on an almost daily basis. Mass notification systems can help schools overcome the speed and reach of communicating with administrators, staff, students and the community at large. (more…)

    Make the most of your office with tools to enable smarter decision making

    , Senior Vice President, Business Intelligence Services and Product Planning

    In September 1994, over 32,000 AT&T employees stayed home to work. This was the first large scale attempt at telecommuting – and a key turning point for exploring how far businesses could go in transforming the workplace.
