UNH Alert System Pings the Public

University of New Hampshire's geo-based mass notification

App overload is avoided because each department or merchant must be individually selected by the user to receive their alerts. Students and staff self-select to receive different kinds of alerts. However, if a user signs up for a business deal, public safety automatically is added. The community information may be what keeps the app on the students smart phones but for UNH, it is the public safety benefits, including Clery compliance, that are invaluable.
