Powerful Notification for Rapid Incident Response

 

Energy and Utility companies that either harvest natural resources or provide consumer services are under constant scrutiny from industry watchers and the public alike. Any interruptions in the production-service demand supply chain can instantly raise fear and create knotty business problems. With well-publicized accidents in the foreground, flawless operations are often mandated and should an incident occur, energy and utility suppliers are required to demonstrate fast response.

Weak, poorly coordinated responses to an emergency have disastrous, long-lasting outcomes as consumers are unlikely to forget electrical blackouts or gas explosions in their communities. Providers can undergo public and private reprimands that can weaken consumer trust and confidence.

Preparedness for the energy and utility industry requires detailed business continuity and disaster recovery planning.

When an emergency occurs, be it an oil spill, gas leak, water main rupture, or electrical outage, HipLink offers a reliable and easy-to-use notification system that improves response and overall operational efficiency.
