Diebold adds weather alert service
NORTH CANTON, Ohio (6/18/10)--Severe weather can disturb the ability for a credit union to serve its members, and ATM manufacturer and CUNA Strategic Service provider Diebold is mitigating this by providing a new WeatherAlert service to its monitoring capabilities. The service provides immediate, customized alerts for severe weather and potential natural disaster watches and warnings, including tornadoes, thunderstorms, lightning, flash floods, high winds and hurricanes. The service also can deliver local weather forecasts up to three times daily. Security managers can receive the information through e-mail, text message, or a phone call. “Weather can certainly impact the safety and security of a business, as well as its employees and customers,” said Bradley J. Stephenson, vice president, security solutions, Diebold. “The WeatherAlert service is an additional means for Diebold to help businesses secure their enterprises and better protect people and assets. Prompt notification of forecasted weather events enables security managers to react more quickly to situations that may compromise operations or safety.” Diebold WeatherAlert notifications are based on a business’ exact physical address. Upon receiving an alert, a security manager can take precautionary measures or initiate disaster response and recovery plans. Effective disaster preparation may even involve transfer of local monitoring operations to a back-up monitoring service, such as Diebold's Monitoring Center. If storms or other events compromise normal monitoring operations, the monitoring center could take over, Diebold said. The WeatherAlert service is available to all end users regardless of their service relationship with Diebold. Diebold authorized dealers can offer the WeatherAlert service to their customers through the Diebold Advanced Dealer Program. Diebold is based in North Canton, Ohio.
