Our current PrairieCat emergency notification tool, PC Chat, is being replaced. The new product is called NetSupport Notify, or in short, NSN.
NSN will be PrairieCat’s staff emergency broadcasting tool. PrairieCat staff will use this tool to send out emergency messages that pertain to system issues/outages that could affect multiple locations.
Strategic planning helps to chart the way forward for our organization. Let your voice be heard by participating in a Planning with PrairieCat meeting in March. Register in L2 for one of the seven sessions.
