Collaborate using Chat Channels in an incident

As easy to use as WhatsApp but secure and controlled by you.

Sentinel uses instant chat not as an add-on to mass notification but as an essential module that can resolve incidents quickly and effectively.

Chat Channels - Instant Messaging Groups


Chat Channels Overview - Managed by Crisis Team

The Chat Channels instant messaging module is dedicated to crisis management and is managed by your crisis team.

Chat Channels Overview - Complete Visibility of Channels

The crisis management team has visibility of all group channels and messages occurring in real-time and can join any channel.

Chat Channels Overview - Control Settings & Permissions

All settings and permissions are in your control and do not require support from other departments in the organisation, like IT and Corporate Communications.

Chat Channels Overview - Ring-fenced AWS Deployment

Your Chat Channels deployment is ring-fenced on its own AWS cloud server with an audit log available to administrators for monitoring, analysis and training purposes.

Chat Channels Overview - Fully Encrypted Data

Unlike social media apps, all Chat Channels data is held on encrypted servers dedicated to your organisation. It can be used securely on the desktop, phones and tablets. Contacts are secure and not shared outside the app.

Chat Channels Overview - Own-Branded App

A premium own-branded version of the app is available to build trust for staff using Chat Channels. This also minimises the risk of data leakage, preventing personal and business conversations from being mixed in the same app.
