Implementation of a cutting-edge communications tool to prepare for the
influenza A (H1N1) pandemic

MONTREAL, Oct. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - In preparation for the second wave of the influenza A (H1N1) virus, Hi-VOS proposes a fast and effective communications tool to help public institutions and businesses better communicate with various groups among the Canadian population: employees, parents, students and clients. The Notificateur, a notification system developed in Québec, enables authorities to contact thousands of people per minute by cellular phone, telephone, text messaging (SMS), pager, fax or e-mail.

"Canadians want to be kept informed of recent developments with regards to the next wave of the influenza A virus in order to better prepare themselves in office, health and teaching environments", says Pierre Lebrun, President of Hi-Vos. "This technological tool fits perfectly with the continuity plan and measures proposed by the Government of Québec (, which highlights the importance for businesses to effectively communicate with their employees" concludes Lebrun.

The Notificateur tool

Designed in Québec, the Notificateur runs on a 100% Web-based technology, in a secure environment. Its fast and easy installation process does not require any telephone or computer system changes. The software is completely bilingual and allows users to almost instantly contact all individuals appearing on institutional and corporate listings.

Besides helping public institutions and businesses manage their communications in the event of a new influenza A pandemic, the Notificateur enables them to communicate urgent messages in real time, such as shutdowns during storms, the interruption of public services and schedule changes. It also facilitates the management of vaccination notices when these are automated during the first visit.
