What our Customers say

We've experienced a ton of improved efficiencies and response times due to the installation. Our customer service response has improved dramatically. They integrate with all of our other systems, and without them it would be hard for us to manage what we do. It makes our job and having contact with the public that much easier.- Dan Birbeck, Dallas County Hospital District Police Department
In the planning phase of the WEBS Contact installation we made a list of some of the most common situations in which you would need to broadcast a message. Even though some of our prerecorded messages are unlikely, we can rest easy knowing we have a prerecorded response to a majority of situations. The entire process was very simple for us and the learning curve was really small.- Shawn Woods, University of the Sciences
They’ve always functioned correctly and don’t require any maintenance. We test the units periodically and we never have problems. I’ve seen other competitor’s units fail after one or two storms. These Talkaphone towers have been working without problems for six years strong- Don Gussler, Emeryville Marina Harbor Master
We perform fire and earthquake drills. We wanted a system that could help us better organize our response and communication with the community. These units have done just that.- Nathan Moore, Chabot College
We wanted to install a solution which we knew would operate without error, each and every time.- Adam Adcock, Carolinas HealthCare System

Throughout the report, the use of technology to improve security systems is considered to be a best practice for school building safety. The creation of a comprehensive school safety plan is critical to ensure that staff and students are as prepared as possible to respond if an incident should occur.
