Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ:EVBG), the global leader in critical event management (CEM), today announced its first-to-market partnership with Telarus, LLC., the largest technology services distributor (master agent) of business cloud services, to deliver essential CEM capabilities to organizations. Through this distribution agreement, Telarus’ network of over 4,000 technology brokers will assist businesses to manage critical events such as coronavirus with the full suite of Everbridge capabilities, including its COVID-19 Shield and Return to Work software solutions. The Everbridge CEM platform automates and accelerates operational response to critical events like the coronavirus pandemic to keep people safe and businesses running efficiently.
Over 5,000 businesses, governments, and healthcare organizations currently rely on Everbridge’s CEM Platform to assess threats, monitor the wellbeing of their workforces, rapidly communicate warnings, protect supply chains, and accelerate the analysis of their operational response. The partnership with Telarus enables organizations to overcome the struggle of managing employee safety and operational resilience on their own, often by cobbling together disparate technology. With Everbridge, organizations can seamlessly mitigate various critical events—from pandemics and terrorism, to cyberattacks and IT outages, to wildfires and extreme weather events—with one reliable unified platform.
“Telarus partners with Everbridge because they pioneered the critical event management category globally and have extended their leadership in recent years to include leading Fortune 500 customers, the largest U.S. states and now even entire countries,” said Amy Bailey, vice president of marketing, Telarus. “As the coronavirus pandemic escalated, Everbridge continued to lead by helping businesses protect their people, supply chains, operations, and brand. Everbridge’s unique capabilities such as COVID-19 Shield and Return to Work software provide differentiation that allow our partners to be true technology consultants for business success.”
“Organizations around the world are increasingly turning to Everbridge to manage all kinds of threats, and that has never been more important than during the current COVID-19 pandemic,” said Vernon Irvin, Everbridge chief revenue officer. “As such, we wanted to partner with the leading and largest technology services master agent distributor of business cloud services. We’re eager to make Everbridge’s CEM technology available to Telarus’ partner community so more businesses can get the support they need through challenging times, including the expected return to work during COVID-19 and beyond.”
As the global leader in critical event management and public warning, Everbridge and its platform reach over 550 million people across the world while serving leading Fortune 500 companies as well as cities, states, and entire countries.
In response to COVID-19, Everbridge quickly launched a coronavirus data feed which supplements its existing real-time risk intelligence based on 22,000 data sources across 175 countries, tracking everything from virus hotspots and travel restrictions, to quarantines and states of emergency, to production stoppages and resumptions, to protests and civil unrest.
The Everbridge platform has delivered over 335 million communications specific to coronavirus as well as launched its COVID-19 Shield rapid deployment templates to protect people and maintain operations amid the pandemic. Everbridge also partners with the U.S. Army to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 across over 400 military locations in 70 countries. The company provides daily updates on its Coronavirus Preparedness Hub.
