California, USA, 25 April 2006: 3n (National Notification Network) announced the availability of InstaCom 4.0, its flagship mass notification system. InstaCom 4.0 consists of significant enhancements to the GIS offering. The new version also introduces 3n’s Intelligent Message Service Prioritization (IMSP) methodology to guarantee 100 percent message delivery, as well as a new set of more comprehensive tools to further ease integration between InstaCom and customers’ internal systems including most ERP and business continuity applications.
InstaCom GIS fulfills need for geographically targeted communications, and version 4.0 includes new polygon drawing feature. Adding to graphical options for selecting recipients including finite zip code, neighborhood, street or radius, users now can draw the border points of a polygon on the GIS map to more accurately target their notifications. Users also can now create multiple layers of interest points (e.g. hospitals, utility poles, fire hydrants), and InstaCom GIS will provide the number of contacts within the selected broadcast layer or region prior to the notification being sent.
