Incident Information Hotlines And No-Wait Reporting Lines

Scale outbound incident communications to keep everyone updated and seamlessly collect and route inbound reporting information.

Sentinel Hotline cloud telephony is a powerful and versatile tool for managing communications during emergencies and incidents. The ability to set up lines in advance or spin up ad hoc lines in under 60 seconds is very useful for responding to unexpected situations.



Sentinel Hotline is designed to improve communication and the flow of information during disruptive and emergency situations. Hotlines are used for keeping staff, contractors and a wider audience informed during fast moving events, filling the communication vacuum that occurs so frequently.

Importantly, incident managers can push out updates with minimal effort to multiple hotlines providing specific information for each one that may relate to a geographical area or any specific group.

There are two types of Hotlines


Incident Information Lines

Sentinel Incident Information lines provides updates to a wide group of people during outages. Helping to mitigate any negative impacts of website and system downtime.

Each Incident Information Line can handle millions of inbound calls per minute, making it an impressive and highly scalable solution to improve incident response.


Reporting Lines
