Figure 1. News screen

The news screen gives occupants access to key updates from across the organization. Administrators create news content in the admin portal, which they can tailor to specific locations, for example, floors or buildings, to ensure that the content is relevant. Pictures and links ensure information is engaging and actionable.

Emergency announcements can be sent through text message or email to ensure that they reach those impacted, whether or not the app is installed or open. In the app, users can mark themselves as safe, with reporting visible to Companion administrators.
