Additionally, Everbridge’s mass notification platform has gained significant traction from federal agencies.

Along with GSA, the company’s CEM platform is deployed by more than 70 federal agencies. Moreover, the company revealed that its platform, which is used by business, healthcare and government organizations worldwide, has exceeded 5 billion communications in 2020.
