IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Q4 Mobile, a division of Q4 Systems Corporation (OTCBB:QFOR), announces that their FanggleCast multi-channel messaging system, FanggleCast, is being used by libraries for emergency notifications in addition to regular library communications.
Last year, during superstorm Sandy, Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) of Brooklyn, New York, used FanggleCast to send out emergency messages to library personnel and notify them of updates on the storm, library hours, and state of the library facilities. The system enables multi-channel communication over Email, SMS, IVR, Facebook, Twitter, and RSS. In Brooklyn's case, Email and SMS channels were utilized for emergency notification during last year's Hurricane Sandy.
"With FanggleCast's quick response we were able to launch the emergency notification system before the hurricane, despite a rushed schedule, and beat out the arrival of the storm. This afforded us some peace-of-mind during the fearful experience of weathering the storm," said Donnell Perkins of BPL.
FanggleCast is one component of Q4 Mobile's Libserra cloud-based suite of tools for libraries, which, in addition to multi-channel communication, includes library database integration, LibraryTV, Two-Way Renewal, Library Mobile App, QR Codes and NFC, fundraising, and more.
"The fact that our messaging platform can be used to assist people in emergencies is of great value to us and our customers. In one mouse click, they can send a message to all or part of their database over a variety of channels simultaneously, offering unprecedented levels of efficiency and ease-of-use", says Ed Baryluk, Q4 Mobile's VP of Sales.
