Everbridge’s Expanding Offerings
Given the recent spate of racial violence in the country, Everbridge is expanding its focus on the development of the colored community. It recently announced its partnership with the National Black MBA Association (NBMBAA). NBMBAA is a nonprofit dedicated to the intellectual and economic empowerment of the Black community.
As part of the partnership, the two will work together to develop educational opportunities for minority students, entrepreneurs and professionals through a commitment of a safe learning environment. Everbridge will give NBMBAA-affiliated schools Critical Event Management (CEM) technology, thus helping provide a safe college campus environment. It will also establish an internship program allowing students to intern at Everbridge and give them accredited training and work experience.
Earlier this year, Everbridge announced that it had received an important new patent related to its public warning system. The patent pertains to a multimedia-capable platform that delivers both traditional text alerts using Cell Broadcast (CB) and multimedia content such as audio, images, and video using Multicast Content Distribution (MCD). The multicast technology has been built on 5G and will help enhance Everbridge’s market reach.
The current pandemic conditions are also helping accelerate the deployment of Everbridge’s solutions. During the quarter, it saw significant market demand for its new applications that are extensions of CEM, such as Return to Work and Campus, Contact Tracing, and COVID-19 Shield.
The pandemic-focused solutions helped contribute to a record result for its mix of sales from new products. During the third quarter alone, more than three dozen organizations chose its Return to Work and Campus and the Contact Tracing solutions to keep people safe and operations running. 64% of new and gross sales over the last four quarters were from new products. In fact, in 2020, Everbridge customers used its SaaS platform to send more than 5 billion communications, a 30% increase.
Everbridge is not the only player in the market. Its mass notification service includes competition from vendors like PagerDuty, RedFlag, and Alert Media to name a few. Everbridge is counting on growing its presence in the market through product upgrades and partnership expansion.
