With 10 years of experience under our belts and delivering millions of messages every month, our clients benefit from our solid, tried and tested, proprietary technology that is “always on”. Equally important to our technology is our knowledgeable support team that is there to help our clients get the maximum benefits when using our products.

What type of support does High Ground Solutions offer its customers?

Training is available over the web, telephone, and on-site based on our client’s needs and preferences.

Online help and documentation is available throughout our applications.
Customer Support is available 24/7/365 days a year.

When can I send out alerts or messages?

You can distribute messages to your contacts whenever you like. Our system is designed to operate securely “24/7/365”, allowing our clients access to the system whenever they need it. That is especially important when an emergency situation arises.

Can I send a message from a remote location or do I have to use my office computer?

One of the great advantages of our web-based family of products is that you can send messages from any land-line or cell-phone from any location, at any time. You can also send messages using any web-connected computer world-wide.

What is the typical Implementation/Start-Up Process?

Getting started is quick and simple because there is no hardware or software to install. The entire system is “web-based” and operates off of our secure network of servers.

Our implementation team guides you each step of the way! From populating our systems with your contact data, training your staff on the operation and usage of our system, reviewing “best practices” and “business decisions” your organization should consider in using our technology to its greatest benefit, to ensuring that you are comfortable with delivering your messages and alerts to your audience – we are there to help you!
