Everbridge introduces coronavirus risk data tool

Everbridge has introduced a new specialist risk intelligence package to assist organisations in managing the impact of the coronavirus on their people, assets, facilities, supply chains and brands.

This new data feed helps users to share information; initiate risk intelligence briefings; broadcast webinars with emergency preparedness experts on best practices; and also to provide a virus preparedness kit.

Data includes health-related incidents and bulletins, airport closures, transportation delays, movement restrictions and manufacturing disruptions, and shows how new developments may impact employees, remote workers, residents, facilities, suppliers and distribution routes. Everbridge’s Risk Intelligence Service, powered by its NC4 acquisition last year, also provides frequent flash updates and situational reports on the fast-changing situation.

“We have mobilised our resources to bring the best data and management practices to bear to help organisations mitigate the impact of the coronavirus,” says Everbridge CTO, Imad Mouline. “Having strong visibility on what is happening and anticipating the potential impact are crucial as the full nature of this situation continues to unfold.”

Everbridge’s support teams have also established a multitude of private networks among hospitals and clinics across the US so they can share coronavirus-related updates and track the spread of the virus.
