The history behind US Netcom's notification capability and professional services.

US Netcom’s parent outreach and project management success goes back to our roots, with the first notification system installed in a Missouri school in 1983. From the beginning, we worked with the principal at the school to provide a notification solution that solved his attendance issues the day the system was installed.

In 1985, we began partnering with student database software vendors to provide unique, diverse telephony services such as voice disguise hotlines, talking databases that speak virtually any information, and survey capabilities that allow a district to poll its parent population with a single call.

Over the years, we graduated beyond school solutions to large-scale district installations encompassing hundreds of phone lines in the largest school districts in the country. Along the way we learned how to implement processes and procedures that ensure the success of every district installation. We are specialists at understanding unique environmental issues and challenges faced by each district, and experts at responding with implementation plans, timelines and services to meet those challenges.

US Netcom maintains an outstanding track record in helping districts solve their communication issues, even those created by other communications vendors.

  • When Cobb County in Atlanta, Georgia installed a new network, we were there alongside their MIS department to ensure a seamless transition across the network with our system.

  • When Grossmont Unified School District faced fires throughout the district in the devastating fires that swept LA in 2003, we provided emergency notification services that linked 40,000 reassuring calls to frantic parents, informing them where their children were and offering pickup instructions.

In 1999, US Netcom introduced Outreach Notification Services as a backup our clients could turn to in the unlikely event their site-based Outreach Notification system experienced catastrophic damage during events such as a hurricane. The service was successful from its first user and it has since been expanded to include users at both school and district levels. The service has served millions of students, parents and administrators since its introduction.

US Netcom is the first and only school-to-parent communication company to pioneer a combination of both site-based equipment and hosted ASP solutions in response to the diverse needs of school districts.

Using a 21st century, customer-driven communications platform, US Netcom currently serves more than 25,000 schools and millions of students across the United States. We are the sole source of Outreach Notification high capacity equipment and services. We have the largest and most tenured staff of professional services consultants to assure smooth implementation for your Outreach Notification solution.
