Critical messaging specialist Secapp has announced its membership of TCCA, the global representative organisation for the critical communications ecosystem.
Based in Finland, Secapp develops and manages the eponymous Secapp critical communications and alerting Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform, designed for use in emergency and disaster situations.
“We have designed Secapp with the emphasis on reliability and security – both essential foundations of critical communications,” said Timo Harju, Head of Partnerships, Secapp. “The rapid dissemination of information in a crisis situation is essential, and in joining TCCA we look forward to becoming further integrated into the critical communications ecosystem that supports first responders and critical users around the world.”
Secapp is designed for improving safety, managing infrastructure and processes, and keeping people informed. It works by combining all commercial communications channels (apps, SMS, automated calls, email) and authority communication (TETRA) channels into one solution, enabling the broadcast of mass notifications, alerts to individuals and teams, and collection and sharing of critical data.
“Secure messaging technology is increasingly in demand to help individuals and communities in a crisis situation, to maintain essential services and to ensure critical information is accessible,” said Kevin Graham, TCCA Chief Executive. “As well as first responders, organisations such as hospitals, public authorities and key industries must be kept informed so they can operate as normally as possible to help mitigate the crisis. Secapp has had considerable success in many sectors, and we are very pleased to welcome the company as a new TCCA member.”
Secapp designs, produces, and develops a secure application called Secapp for versatile organizational and crisis communication use. The main features of the application are multi-channel alerting of important people, secure instant messaging, and documentation and reporting of critical information. Secapp operates nationwide in Finland and the Nordic Countries, Estonia, Canada, the Middle East, Spain, Portugal, and Brazil.
