Poppulo to arm COVID-19 healthcare crisis teams with communication firepower for frontline workers

CEO Andrew O'Shaughnessy says the company wants "to do everything we can to support these heroic people".

Essential communication technology is being made available free of charge to COVID-19 healthcare crisis teams in their battle against the pandemic.

Public health services around the world are being offered the critical communication firepower by Poppulo to connect with their frontline workers and first responders.

Ireland's national public health service, the Health Service Executive, has already taken up the offer for its COVID-19 communication team.

Poppulo CEO, Andrew O’Shaughnessy, said the company was in the privileged position that its platform was designed for the type of urgent communications public healthcare crisis teams need right now, and it wanted to help in any way possible.

The company has fast-tracked set-up processes so that crisis teams can get up and running quickly.

Every day, communications to over 25 million employees in over 900 companies across 100+ countries are sent through Poppulo and, over the past few weeks, tens of millions of those communications have been related to the COVID-19 crisis.

For crisis teams, it’s critical to be able to get the right information to the right people at the right time, and not burden already overwhelmed frontline workers with communications that are not relevant to them. The crisis teams also need to be able to get instant feedback from the coalface.

For frontline workers in the turmoil and uncertainty of a crisis, it’s imperative they can rely on getting the most up-to-date information they need to know from trusted sources, through email or mobile app no matter where they are at any time.

This is what Poppulo was designed to do and how COVID-19 teams can use it.

“Working with big multinational organizations every day, we know how to get the communications needed by frontline staff in place rapidly and want to do everything we can to help these heroic people,” said Mr. O’Shaughnessy.
