Omnilert®, LLC, maker of e2Campus® safety communication solution for education, today announced a new partnership with the Organization for Educational Technology & Curriculum (OETC). The consortium has negotiated unique, low cost pricing of e2Campus services for both K-12 schools and higher education institutions that are OETC members.

"e2Campus wasn't complex," said Thomas Richards, Executive Director of OETC. "It got at the heart of what our members' wanted – namely no-fuss notifications. I think our members will really appreciate how quickly they can go from having no mass notification system to having a great system up and running."

OETC is a non-profit education technology group that negotiates with software and hardware vendors to secure the best pricing for its members. Membership is open to any any accredited educational institution, educational service districts or state departments of education. Membership fees are based on number of students served.

"Schools are at the center of our communities, and are an important hub of information," added Richards. "It's imperative that schools embrace communications solutions that allow them to disseminate important information quickly."
