We’re thrilled to announce that Envoy now provides emergency notifications for employees and visitors. Envoy provides leaders with everything they need to run their workplace in one integrated platform, and emergency notifications furthers our vision for centralizing workplace safety and security. We’ve also made critical improvements for admins, including space management enhancements with contextual data.

Leverage attendance insights for proactive space management

Streamline building access for employees who don't have their badge

This feature is currently supported by LenelS2 Netbox and C-CURE 9000 access control integrations. Learn more.  

Available for tenants in buildings with Envoy Connect. Interested in Connect for your building? Email us.
