XO Launches Multi-Modal Mass Notification Service

XO Communications has joined with Blackboard Inc. to launch a multi-modal mass communication service for the commercial market.

XO Connect enables businesses and large enterprises to communicate vital information to thousands of individuals instantly and simultaneously during times of crisis -- such as hurricanes, tornados, and other weather-related events. It could also be used for day-to-day business operations, including conferences, sales meetings and managing remote employees. Messages are sent using voice, email and text messages to virtually any device.

Because XO Connect is a Software as a Service (SaaS) application, there is no capital investment in hardware or software required. In addition, XO Connect offers unlimited messaging at an annual subscription fee per employee.
