  • Are you going to use the Mass Notification System frequently or infequently?
    If you are using the system infrequently make sure you select a Mass Notification system that is very easy to learn. You will otherwise end up with a very capable system that the user don’t know how to use. Make sure you think carefully identify what functions the inexperienced has to use. These functions has to very intuitive and easy to use. For instance you want to be able to activate a notification in a quick, easy and intuitive way. Are you even able to automate the activation, that’s even better.
  • Central management or decentralized?
    Do have the capability to manage lists, messages and scenarios in the Mass Notification System centrally or do you need to let each organization take car of their data management. If you would like to work decentralized, makes sure you among Mass Notification Systems select the easiest system instead of selecting the most advanced. On the other hand if you want to manage data in a centralized way, make sure you automate as much as possible.
  • How is system going to be implemented
    A lot of implementations of Mass Notification Systems fails because the implementation of the system in the organization is to complicated. Think through the details in advance and try to keep it simple. Check with references of the Mass Notification Systems vendor that the reference is really using the system successfully


Security is important. One easy way to check if the vendor has done it’s home work is to check SSL security of the site they provide. When you use the WEB site sensitive information is transferred over the Internet. Make sure that the information is encrypted in a safe way. SSL Lab offers a comprehensive tool for this.
