NACR Partners with Mutare to Promote Notification Solutions and Target Higher Education
Special Promotion Offers Chance to Win Private Briefing and NCAA Tickets

EAGAN, Minn., Nov. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For a limited time, customers who want to learn more about notification solutions for higher education and other industries can register to win a private technology briefing and tickets to an NCAA basketball game, courtesy of communications integration expert NACR and its application partner Mutare Software.


The special promotion was created to target colleges and universities in particular, providing them with valuable information about the industry-leading Enterprise Notification System (ENS), a powerful yet affordable solution for broadcasting important messages and alerts to targeted groups or specific locations.

"By integrating the Mutare ENS application into a higher education network, NACR is able to provide automated notification technology that is sophisticated yet easy to use and deploy across the campus and beyond," said Rena Taylor, Public Sector Director at NACR. "It allows a school to deliver both voice and text messages to PCs, mobile devices, and pagers as needed to keep the whole academic community -- students, teachers, staff, and families -- informed, up to date, and safe at all times."

Not limited to higher education, ENS is also widely used to provide secure messaging and emergency notification capabilities for healthcare, government, manufacturing, and other industries.

Through November 13, 2011, customers who register at NACR's website to learn more about the ENS solution are automatically entered for a chance to win a special NCAA prize package including:

  • Two tickets for sponsored seating at an NCAA game -- either Villanova University vs. University of Pennsylvania (December 3, 2011, Villanova, PA) or University of Arizona vs. Clemson University (December 10, 2011, Tucson, AZ)
  • A private pre-game technology briefing with NACR, Avaya, and Mutare Software
  • Two airline tickets to the game city
  • One night hotel stay in the game city

Complete details and contest rules are available in the News & Events section of the NACR website.

The secure ENS solution from NACR and Mutare features multiple campus broad notification and synchronization with campus directories, and can deliver information to the community according to segmentation based on line of business/role. Supporting both one-time announcements and everyday events, ENS can be used to:

  • Deliver extracurricular reminders and notices
  • Coordinate campus security
  • Place calls for substitute staffing
  • Provide administrative updates or board notices
