Gibson Realty Group Implements Send Word Now Emergency Notification Service
NEW YORK, NY, September 24, 2014 – Send Word Now®, the leading innovator of critical communications services, including emergency notification and incident management, today announced the implementation of its award-winning Alerting Service by Gibson Realty Group LLC. The Florida-based firm will use Send Word Now to instantly relay voice and text messages to employees and tenants in urgent situations, helping ensure safety and security, and improve existing business resilience measures.
“Send Word Now provides our office tenants the security of knowing they’re receiving critical information in a timely manner,” said Leigh Griffin, a General Manager with Gibson Realty Group. “It has become an important component of our emergency procedures.”
Gibson Realty Group is an extension of Gibson Development Partners, a progressive, full-service commercial real estate development team serving South Florida and the southeastern United States. Among its prestigious Florida properties are Plaza San Remo, a first-class medical and professional condominium; Sunset International Center; Flamingo Pavilion; Orange Bowl Committee HQ; and Gateway Center, a 155,000 square-foot, mixed commercial office project strategically located in Miami’s Airport West submarket.
As a Send Word Now customer, Gibson Realty Group joins more than 1,800 public and private sector organizations worldwide that rely on the company’s emergency communications service to communicate faster and more effectively in response to critical events. Inclement weather and IT disruptions, including network failures and email viruses, top the list of common emergency uses. For Gibson Realty Group, the service will also be used to advise personnel and tenants of building evacuations, security risks and office closures.
“As Gibson Realty Group’s emergency notification provider, it appears the firm does more than provide first-class homes and office space; it takes safety, security and business resiliency to heart,” said Lorin Bristow, Senior Vice President, Marketing, for Send Word Now. “We are very happy to assist the company with its critical communications needs, and look forward to a long and mutually rewarding relationship going forward.”
