Company Name: City of Portland Maine
Business Description: city government.
White Paper/ Quote: "As the largest city
in the state, the City of Portland, Maine found
that PageGate was the only product available that
fulfilled all of our wireless messaging needs.
By installing the PageGate Server on a dedicated
machine in City Hall's MIS department, we can
now easily make global database changes quickly
and efficiently while still remaining transparent
and functional to our Emergency Dispatch staff.
Among the more helpful features is the ability
to create multiple groups of recipients. Now,
many of our Fire, Police, EMS, and City Services
employees receive their text messages simultaneously
on multiple devices. This proved exceptionally
effective during a recent windstorm that affected
coverage from some wireless carriers. Prior to
having the ability to send the same message to
different carriers, we were out of business if
all our staff relied on a single point of failure."
