- Here is what people are saying about Alerta:
"My Job is to be better and have content faster than the competitor's
web page. I use alerta with NetMind to monitor their site. If they
ever do get something to their site first - I'm not far
behind.Anytime, Anywhere. I like it! "
"We have a Enterprise Monitor from Mediahouse monitoring currently 56
devices over IP. My teams use alerta to get their alerts to their

@lerta.com is a FREE wireless communication service for
receiving your information anytime, anywhere. This service utilizes
the text messaging capabilities of digital pagers and other wireless
devices, including digital phones, PDAs, etc.)
You get an Alerta e-message account (email@example.com). When
someone sends email to your account, Alerta forwards this message to
your pager or any other wireless device (cell phone, PDA, etc.). The
Alerta system optimizes email messages for your specific device. It
also forwards it to your regular email account enabling you to track
and record your messages.
Unlike prior "push" technology, in which the recipient had only
superficial input into what type of information he received, you, as
an Alerta member, can customize the type of information you receive
and when you receive it.
If you want to be notified of special promotions and events, your
specific news, or if you want to receive your email without sitting
behind your desk or lugging a laptop around, then...
Alerta is for you! Sign up now - to experience the freedom of
Permissive Push technology!
Your information anytime, anywhere.
Alerta, Inc. was founded in October 1998 with the intent to act as a
conduit for time-sensitive information from companies and individuals
to persons or organizations requesting immediate information to be
transmitted to their wireless devices, whether pagers, cellular
phones, or personal digital assistants (PDAs).
Alerta uses the Internet as its backbone, acting as an open,
platform-independent gateway for messaging to wireless devices. If
you want to change your carrier or wireless device, Alerta goes with
you. Once you sign up for Alerta's services and receive an Alerta
address, it's yours for as long as you use our services. You can
choose the type of information you want to receive and when you want
to receive it.
Our mission is best summed up by our slogan, "Your information
anytime, anywhere". Using our Permissive Push technology, Alerta's
mission is to become the platform-independent standard for the
dissemination of time-sensitive information to wireless devices.

E-mail users can also set preferences to format incoming messages. A
typical wireless communication device such as a cell phone can
display up to 150 characters. An average-sized e-mail will have 10
times that many characters. That means that without the customization
provided by Alerta, a user would receive 9-10 pages of information.
With Alerta, the user can determine a maximum number of screens and
characters they wish to receive. Users can also decline to receive
attachments to e-mail documents and instead receive them only at
their primary e-mail address.
In addition to receiving e-mail information on your wireless device,
a copy of this e-mail is also automatically forwarded to your primary
e-mail address. This feature allows for added security and makes sure
that you always get all of your messages.
Alerta's Web site includes a "members only" area that provides a way
to receive up-to-date sports, weather and entertainment information,
reminders and announcements. Users will be able to select and custom
configure a personalized approach to wireless e-mail communications.
