Mobie Alert is designed to provide a safety network for businesses, their employees, employees' families, and co-businesses. It gives businesses the power to know and act by broadcasting emergency alerts and cautionary messages to all members within their alert circle.
A Business Account consists of the business creating an alert circle of management and all employees, and anyone else the business wishes to include, such as the local police and employees' spouses or partners. In the event of an emergency, the business can warn all members of the danger on company premise and take appropriate actions.
The Business Account has special features in addition to the universal features of all accounts. These special features are:
These special features allow businesses to control and coordinate communication with security, management and emergency responders, as well as determine and coordinate actions during emergencies.
The type of circle member is assigned by the business when it sets up its alert circle. Member's designation can be changed at any time based on the business' changing situations. The following is our definition of each type of member within a business' alert circle:
Mobie Alert allows the business to determine its perimeters. You get to set the boundaries. Within this set geography, Mobie Alert can be used to send cautionary messages (such as construction hazards on the premise, closed streets or buildings, etc.) and emergency alerts (accidents with injuries, fire, etc.) affecting everyone who works at the business. Even if members are not on premise the moment the alert is broadcasted, they will still receive the information on their mobile devices, and via email, to notify them of the situation. Armed with knowledge of the emergency, they can respond accordingly.
Beyond the business' range, a Mobie Alert Business Account becomes an Individual Account that can be used only to notify the individual's personal alert circle, which would not include the business. You can visit our Individual Account to find out more about how it works.
Business Account Services subscription is affordable and is for one year. The business pays a fee of $399.99 USD for itself and $0.99 for each circle member (e.g., employees). This is done by purchasing Access Codes for them. Businesses can provide us with their names and email addresses; we'll send them an invitation email along with the Access Code for them to use to join the business' alert circle.
Please thoroughly read our Terms of Service before and when you register your account with Mobie Alert.
Mobie Alert is a safety and alert network. As such, once all students and employees of the business are registered, part of the alert circle, and armed with Mobie Alert's app on their mobile smart devices, any time a dangerous situation arises on a business' premise, any Initiator or Security member can launch any one of the 3 customized emergency messages or any one of the 4 customized cautionary messages to the circle. All members will receive a push message and an email notifying them of the emergency or cautionary situation. Cautionary messages are received as push messages as they are general notifications only. An emergency alert message will create a communication forum which opens when the member opens the emergency push message. Posted on the emergency forum is the name of the Initiator/Security member who launched the message, the preset emergency message, the sender's GPS location, and the time and date of the event.
Due to the various sizes of a business and its need for control and coordination, only Initiators and Security members can communicate on the forum using chat and images. Notifiers can see only the initial emergency message, but do not see any additional communications and cannot access any functions on the forum's board except for the "Help" button. As such, an authorized Security member can share information and the school's decisions by sending them Alert-On-The-Go customized messages. The reason for this control is to allow those in charge to properly respond to the crisis and not congest the communication forum.
On the main forum screen are features for:
These functions can be accessed only by Initiators and Security during an emergency.
While the application is open, any new emergency can be launched by Initiators and Security via the "Help" button. This will send out a new emergency alert and a new emergency forum will be created to deal with that particular situation. Again, all circle members will receive push messages informing them of the nature of the emergency. However, if a Notifier launches the "Help" button while his/her app is opened during a business emergency, he/she has 3 options: (1) contact Security for help, or (2) launch an emergency alert message to his/her personal alert circle, or (3) abort. If a personal emergency alert is launched to the Notifier's personal alert circle, it would not affect the business' alert circle. You can learn more about how our Individual Account works by visiting that page.
Before the emergency is closed out, administrators can save communication data from the forum. This data is sent to all Initiators and Security members. Once the emergency situation is resolved, the person who launched the emergency alert (Initiator or Security) is the only person who can close the forum and reset all members' application on all devices for the next time it is needed. This is done through the "Reset" button on the app, or through the business' account on our website. However, if there has been no activity on the forum after 24 hours, then the application will automatically reset itself.

If a shooting occurs on the business' premise, the business can respond immediately with Mobie Alert:
Mobie Alert gives businesses the advantage of creating collective networks with other businesses within their area for safety and protection. For example, a strip mall has seven stores including grocery, clothes, electronics, and food.
At this strip mall, all seven businesses are part of one collective network with designated Initiators and Securities. They have no Notifiers as they are all small in size. In addition, this collective has included a police officer from a local station who patrols this area.
One day, two gun men attempt to rob the electronics store. They are trying to steal various electronics as well as empty the cash register. At that moment, the electronics store only had three employees on duty. They were caught unaware and didn't have the time to launch an emergency alert. However, a different store employee catches a glimpse of the robbery and launches an emergency alert with the preset message: "Robbery by armed men. Lockdown. Call police." This emergency alert goes out to all members of the alert circle, including the local police officer. The sender immediately follows through with a call to 911.
Meanwhile at the electronics store, a number of loud siren-like alarms go off on each circle members' mobile smart phones. This startles the would-be robbers who demand to know what's going on. A store employee apprises them of his company's collective security with all businesses at the strip mall and the local police station. The police have been alerted and are on their way.
Panicked at the imminent arrival of the police, the robbers only take whatever cash they can and make a run for it. As they exit, other stores' employees take pictures of them for law enforcement. The electronic store's employees are unharmed and no electronic products were stolen thanks to the quick actions of the collective security.
Mobie Alert can be used any time and any where safety is a concern for everyone. No matter where you and members within your circle are at work, as long as you have Mobie Alert and Internet connectivity, you can launch an emergency alert to safeguard each other. That's the power and reach of Mobie Alert!
