MNS solutions are used in energy, utilities, and oil and gas industries to notify the masses regarding emergency situations, such as natural disasters, rig fires and oil spills, severe weather conditions, security breaches, or any accidents on site. The considerable deployment of MNS of oil rigs and distribution centers is attributed to severe weather conditions, geographical proximity, and vulnerability to industrial accidents. Business alerts and notifications such as power outage, work shift notifications, and workflow management are also provided by mass notification solutions specifically in the energy and utilities sector to streamline business operations and enable robust business continuity processes. The solutions are useful in cutting down costs and increasing the productivity of assets. The solutions also help the emergency and security teams to execute evacuation or emergency management activities more efficiently. Thus, the adoption of the MNS is increased in most of the enterprises in the energy and utilities vertical.
