Cascade and Emergency Notification System Integration


We built a custom module in Cascade to display Alerts, Awareness and Safety bulletins on various pages. We also make use of this template’s multiple outputs to generate xml/rss feeds to integrate our PeopleSoft & Campus wide display screens. Everbridge is our Emergency notification system, capable to deliver mass messages ( email, text, voicemail, call, rss, etc) to all our students & staff. We wanted to enhance this a step further and integrate Cascade System, so that our Web users are also alerted during those critical moments. Using Web Services in Cascade and a custom interface, we are able to integrate Emergency System and existing module in Cascade to push those notifications even to Web and its dependent systems.
