Voyent Alert! is a notification system that uses advanced geospatial technology to send personalized alerts about emergencies and day-to-day activities.
Rather than receive a generic message about an event taking place in your town, Voyent Alert! will provide detailed information that is relevant to you. Our alerts are able to provide necessary details including an event’s distance from you, maps of the impacted areas, and your next steps. This could be a reminder to move your car for street cleaning or step-by-step directions to the nearest evacuation shelter.
The result is that the message you receive provides the most important information, allowing you to make better, more informed decisions.
