Blackberry selected for U.S. Senate crisis communications
The software will power the Sergeant at Arms' joint emergency mass notification systems (JEMNS) over five years.
With full-spectrum enterprise-level alerting and accountability, JEMNS powered by AtHoc provides secure notification and communications in times of crisis for as many as 50,000 individuals working and visiting the United States Capitol Complex.
This announcement marks the second large engagement between BlackBerry's AtHoc and Leidos, which also partnered to provide the U.S. Army its global mass notification under the emergency management modernization program.
Full implementation of JEMNS based on the AtHoc solution will be achieved over the coming months, with Leidos providing direct support and help desk support to the congressional community. ■
