People everywhere are using PunchAlert to:

Organizations all over the country are using PunchAlert to:

PunchAlert allows organizations to communicate more efficiently and resolve incidents faster, all the while creating a detailed record and report of the incident.

- Send announcements to employees, customers, students, or guests.
- Create a community of safety

Notes: Some features of PunchAlert require a data connection either through WiFi or a cellular network. During an emergency incident, continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life. We monitor battery life to account for such scenarios. In the case of issues with 911+ call quality, we provide a link to call 911 outside of PunchAlert using cellular. Emoji icons supplied by EmojiOne. A copy of our Terms of Use can be found here:

What’s New

Version 5.4.5

It's only been a few weeks since our last update, but this one has some very important
updates. To be honest, most of them are mechanical. There area few new
things available though that we think everyone will like:

-Emoji Support

Goodness, this has been requested for a while and finally,
our curmudgeon of a dev manager conceded and added it :)

-Public Lists

Our definition of Lists is really expanding. I know, Lists
shouldn't be capitalized, and they are boring, right? Wrong. We are going to be
expanding our use of Lists and making them dynamic objects to be used
throughout the platform, so stay tuned. The first phase of this strategy is to
introduce Public Lists that customers can setup so any public user can join
them and receive content from the customer. This should be handy for
customers that want to add existing distribution lists of patrons, etc. that aren't
necessarily app subscribers. Ok, I am rambling at this point, so contact us if
you want to learn more.

-The Big Red Button

It's back. Some of us are *excited* that it has returned,
and we think you will be too. Upon app launch, it is presented and can be
closed. To re-open it, a swipe from the bottom of the screen should do it. We
even have a cool new name for the Big Red Button presentation - we are
calling it 'LaunchPad.'

-IPAWS Notifications

In the last release, we introduced our partnership and
integration with FEMA/DHS IPAWS (Integrated Public Alert and Warning
System). In this release, we are expanding its use to include local notification on
the device.

That’s it for this release. The next release will be a major one; in fact, so major I am
starting to write the "What's New" section now even though it's still some time out
(not really, but I have to say that to give myself a buffer in case our dev schedule
goes sideways).

Very unique and Helpful!

I'm currently a teacher at Providence Day School, which has recently partnered with Punch to create a safe environment for the staff and students! It truly is a unique app that you can get no where else! In love!!! Props to the creators.

Fantastic App

Great app that provides an effective mobile panic alarm and emergency communication system. This product will set the standard for how schools protect their staff, faculty, and students in the event of an emergency.
