Semotus Solutions Joins the ESRI Developer Network


Semotus to create an interface within HipLinkXS to ESRI’s ArcIMS for new mass public notification technology

LOS GATOS, Calif. – November 29, 2006 – (PRIMEZONE) – Semotus Solutions, Inc. (AMEX:DLK - News), an innovative leader of software solutions for enterprise mobility, today announced that the Company has joined the ESRI Developer Network (EDN). The major result of this will be the significant expansion of HipLinkXS’ current critical messaging capabilities to include mass notification to the public based on GIS data.

In addition to using wireless technology to activate their first responders, it is becoming more and more critical that organizations can target alerts to the general public in specific geographic areas in the event of an emergency. These can be warnings related to weather, accidents in the vicinity, chemical spills, factory contamination, or even Amber Alerts. The HipLinkXS and ArcIMS integration will allow organizations to supplement media announcements and the emergency broadcast system by quickly pinpointing and alerting areas that could be immediately affected by a critical event.

Semotus is developing an advanced integration with ESRI’s ArcIMS that allows users from within HipLinkXS to seamlessly generate a lookup of residents for a specific geographical area. By using ArcIMS to tap into the GIS database of regional plot maps, property lot numbers, and addresses, HipLinkXS will extract and match this data with corresponding phone numbers. Then, using sophisticated voice technology, HipLinkXS will send a voice message to thousands of phone numbers at once. Dispatchers can choose from a library of pre-canned messages, or record and send a custom message.

“The outcome of joining the ESRI Developer Network marks a significant milestone in HipLinkXS’ evolution as a complete Critical Alert Notification Solution,” notes Pamela LaPine, President of Semotus Solutions. “Already in use at numerous emergency response agencies for first responders, now HipLinkXS, in conjunction with ArcIMS, can be used to communicate on a broad scale to provide rapid public communication.”

“ESRI is excited to have Semotus Solutions as part of the ESRI Developer Network; we look forward to their participation in the developer community as they continue to build solutions on the ESRI platform,” said Rob Elkins, EDN product manager, ESRI.

HipLinkXS is currently used in numerous organizations to coordinate real time communication between first responders, including the Florida and New York City Departments of Environmental Protection, Kern County, Wake County, and the E-911 Centers of Henry County and Lee County, among others. A powerful, state-of-the-art messaging solution that enables delivery of critical messages, HipLinkXS can also fully integrate with any enterprise application. Built on best-of-breed technology and incorporating advanced features, HipLinkXS ensures message delivery across multiple devices and through a variety of communication protocols.

ArcIMS software delivers dynamic maps and GIS data and services via the Web. It provides a highly scalable framework for GIS Web publishing that meets the needs of corporate Intranets and demands of worldwide Internet access. EDN is an annual subscription-based program that provides software developers with the resources needed to build solutions that embed ESRI’s desktop and server technologies.
