  • “We can reach more customers with fewer people. In reality, sometimes we send out 10,000 calls in one day. There’s no way the people in our department could dial and contact that many people in one day without One Call Now.”

    - Tran Le, Senior Analyst Information Technology and Services, Constellation Energy, an Exelon Company
  • “It’s been wonderful. It’s been such a life saver for our department and has saved so much money. I would probably need another full-time person just to make phone calls. One person in the office couldn’t possibly call all the employees.”

    - Melinda McBride-Plawecki, supplemental staffing department administrative manager - Community Healthcare System
  • “Elkland Search and Rescue, a nonprofit Search and Rescue team in Pennsylvania is very happy with One Call Now's service. We are able to activate all of our search team members in the matter of a few minutes of an emergency call out. This has greatly reduced our response time to an emergency situation. Being a nonprofit organization and the cost of pagers for activation of our members, the One Call Now system is a much more cost effective resource for our team!”

    - John Feldbauer, Chief - Elkland Search and Rescue
  • “They really like the system. Principals used to make three to five calls at a time, so they love the fact that I make one call and it’s done – they just love it”

    - Dr. Tom Henderson, Superintendent of Centerville City Schools
  • “Your system is wonderful! I love the simplicity of the system and the powerful ability to retrieve message reports. Thanks for the great product at a very reasonable price!”

    - Shawn N., Pastor - Salem Mennonite Church
  • “I've called from hospitals, my car, and even from another state to deliver important messages to my congregation. It has taken a lot of stress off of the leadership team. I feel like is has even improved attendance at church events.”

    - David S., Pastor - Flat Rock Pentecostal Holiness Church
  • “The system has already shown great success with our county DATs, helping us engage more volunteers, mentor new ones, and serve clients more quickly. With the help of One Call Now, our response time in February was the second best in nine years.”

    - Red Cross Pennsylvania
  • “Most of the time we use One Call Now to send a message for an immediate shift opening, but it’s great for getting out other announcements and reminders also, such as time changes”

    - Jessica Kluyov, Director of Operations at Towne Nursing Staff, inc.
  • “The more comfortable the users are becoming with it, the more they are able to find new ways to utilize it. The biggest benefit is the real time notifications. We deal with multiple residents in each building. Winter can be terrible in Minnesota, and the system notifies residents immediately about snow plowing.”

    - Travis Guza, Director of IT StuartCo
  • “One Call Now is easy to set up, gets information to our patrons faster and will save us $100,000 this year!”
