Pros: Gives us the ability to send text messages when servers and other network related alerts happen. Easy to configure with solarwinds NPM.

Cons: The program itself has an older interface but is simplistic. There are issues form time to time where it seems that it limits amount of text when using SMS texting feature.

Overall: Allows our technicians to get SMS alerts if critical systems are having issues. We also use it for INclement Weather texting if we have an office closing.

PageGate is a workhorse with enough features to keep the most demanding folks happy.

Pros: Very versatile. Enough options to allow us to do everything we need and more. It literally is a set it and forget it situation for us. We have never had PageGate crash on its own - there has always been an outside contributing factor.

Cons: We are a 24/7 operation. Even with premium support NotePage is not available to assist us after hours. While we have seldom needed assistance there have been a couple occasions, after hours of course, we could have benefited from guidance.

Overall: Flexibility and a set it and forget it robustness.

Does what it says. Reliable and stable.

Pros: It works great and is very stable. Once the program is set up and made to run as a service, you should rarely, if ever, need to make changes or poke at it. It is also a great value.

Cons: It can be sort of difficult to figure out. Support is usually required until you become proficient with it. Thankfully, the basic tech support that is included with the software is top notch.

Overall: We use it to interface 911 dispatch centers CAD systems with Active 911 and and a few other text based common carrier paging packages. It runs on the CAD server and distributes the pages. It's a simple implementation, but I don't know of any other software that can accomplish what PageGate does.

Pros: Very powerful with new filtering options adds to the capabilities and what we are able to do. We use it in conjunction with network monitoring software to send critical alerts of security breaches.

Cons: Nothing that comes to mind. We've never had an issue with the product - very reliable and good support provided.

Works great! Cheaper and better than other platforms I have used.

Pros: PageGate is a powerful communication solution that does more than just text messaging. It is being used in conjunction with alarms to send alerts in urgent situations - and it does this very well.

Cons: Not immediately obvious all that it can do. It would be great if training could be provided for additional cost, however their documentation is a great alternative and the their support staff is very helpful.

Overall: Seamless integration into our existing platforms

Very reliable application, easy to use, excellent customer service & consistent performance. (PG 6.)

Pros: Easy to upgrade, install and maintained with excellent customer support. Able to send messages to physical pagers, smartphones and work with various carriers. Ease to setup a replication/back up system and synchronize it with out a DBA, cost effective, great ROI based on # pages and recipients, secure and fast (best over WCTP), integrates with other Apps. and gateways

Cons: Limitation of not being able to do a two way paging, between smart pager devices (cell phones). This is a paging system that does more that paging physical pagers, I don't have negative feedback about this product. The tendency of the market is pointing to the utilization of smart devices & technologies, however I for see the use of pager devices for the next 3 + years. The simplicity, performance and cost will allow any organization to have a good communication system with a good ROI based on number of recipients and messages.

a great paging solution with a simple UI and a good number of features

Pros: Simple user interface for the dispatchers to use. A very reliable program, we have never had it go down. It is very flexible and allows us many options to alert our responders.

Cons: I would like to explore an encryption interface to send encrypted pages particularly for our Emergency Medical Service pages.

PageGate is a very flexible, feature rich system.

Pros: Easy to navigate for the end user through the GUI client and easy to maintain on the back end for system administrators.

Cons: The only negative I can say is more of a feature suggestion. The ability to signal a recipient on more than one device would be extremely handy. In public safety, many police officers have a work phone and a personal phone for obvious reasons. When off-duty, they don't always want to carry their work phone but still may need to be alerted to an emergency situation. The ability to have a cell phone and a pager or two cell phones, etc. without having to have two entries for each person would be very handy. Or the ability to build groups without the (G) next to them, that would appear in the normal alphabetized list would be helpful.

Overall: Easy to use and very cost effective both on the front end and to maintain. The computer power required is not significant so it can easily share server space on an existing box or run stand-a-lone.

We've been using PageGate for several years now and it is covering all of our paging needs.

Pros: I have very few issues with the software. Its there working for us 24/7. You almost never think about it because it's getting the job done. For the few times we need it, customer support is top notch.

Overall: 41 of our staff member carry pagesr and 24 carry cell phones. The Client software is loaded on several computers on campus. We use it for fire alarm paging, energy management fault paging, nurse call paging and general notifications to our staff members.

Outstanding for Emergency Service Notifications

Pros: PageGate is a product that emergency responders (fire, EMS, Rescue and Law Enforcement) trust every single day to notify them of emergency calls and important lifesaving information.

Cons: I cannot really think of cons for the product. I guess since I have to put something in this space, I will say the cons would be the end user switching telephone numbers often cause system information to have to be changed but that is not really a cons of the software product

Overall: Emergency Responders Notification System that is dependable and reliable

Mission critical software that is not just cutting edge but also reliable!
