Our Story

Mobility, the rise of the anytime/anywhere workforce, and global unpredictability continue to converge at an unprecedented scale. Since 2001, Everbridge has been there for clients across all industries and government sectors, redefining the market for unified critical communications. During critical events, Everbridge removes global, regional, and technology barriers, enabling organizations to quickly communicate and collaborate with the right context.

The company’s inception in 2001 was no coincidence—our co-founders created Everbridge with a vision to help people communicate more effectively, following the tragic events of 9/11. The painful lessons learned during that day can easily be applied to other emergencies and critical events. Governments need to more effectively balance communication with response and action; hospitals, universities, and other public institutions need to bridge technology gaps to improve communication; and businesses have to deploy safeguards to keep their mobile, global workforce safe, secure, and productive.

Everbridge is now the leader in unified critical communications, with more than 2,500 clients around the world relying on us every day to be better prepared, to make better decisions, and to communicate and collaborate quickly and confidently during emergencies, operational incidents, and continuity events.

Everbridge Helps Over 900 Counties and Organizations Send Safety Information During Hurricane Matthew

More than 900 counties, cities, businesses, transportation authorities and hospitals — including the state of Florida — used Everbridge to send millions of messages to keep people in the storm’s path informed, connected, and safe.

Missing Boy Found with Help of Nixle (an Everbridge Company)

Fifteen minutes after the Oak Ridge Police department used Nixle to send a local alert about a missing boy, it announced that the boy had been found, and Oak Ridge Police Chief James Akagi updated the community, again using Nixle.

High-Impact Technology

Everbridge has added six solutions to its platform since 2012 — two in 2016 alone — and we expect that pace to continue. Each solution is built independently with its own distinct code base. A few examples:

Mass Notification

Enables organizations to notify millions of residents and employees in an emergency, automatically varying contact paths — from text, to email, to phone — until the person responds they are safe.

Incident Communication

Allows organizations to quickly send targeted messages to different populations (e.g. a city could create template alerts for those affected, those in surrounding areas, and police or fire departments).

Safety Connection

Pulls location data from multiple sources to automate communications to the right people, at the right time. For instance, helping organizations quickly identify and confirm the safety of employees near a terrorist attack.
