“In one word, Regroup is a partnership. We’ve developed a great relationship in which we’ve developed exciting solutions and we’ve only begun.”
Ellucian is a merger between two education technology giants: Datatel and SunGard Higher Education. Regroup is Ellucian’s official emergency notifications provider and won their 2011 Emerging Partner of the Year award due to our superior product, service, and rapid growth within Higher Education.

Regroup provides an easy to use solution to integrate with third-party databases such as Jenzabar, Peoplesoft, Pearson PowerSchool Student Information System (SIS), and more. Our system allows you to easily and automatically import user data to our system to be processed and uploaded into (or removed from) groups. For more details, please visit http://bit.ly/n51cnA.
Regroup’s integration with social media applications such as Facebook and Twitter allows users to post messages simultaneously out through social media. The 18-25 year old demographic spends 25% of total online time on social media, and important alerts are now able to be searched and found in “real-time” when they are integrated with Facebook and Twitter.
Regroup integrates with your own website to seamlessly provide a way for web-goers to view recent alerts. For several examples of this, please visit our helpdesk topic about website integrations here .
Regroup’s Blackboard Learn integration enables faculty, administrators, and course instructors to easily send text messages or SMS to students within Blackboard Learn. They can also choose to simultaneously post messages via announcements and email.
Regroup has formed a successful partnership with Parature, a global leader in web-based customer service software http://www.parature.com/integration.aspx. Regroup implemented a new Parature widget that enables text messages from Customer Service Representatives to customers. This allows for a quicker time-to-close on tickets, a more personal touch for customers, and an additional option for customers who prefer text messages to email.
Regroup offers a convenient single sign-on option which can integrate with an existing LDAP, Open LDAP, CAS, or Shibboleth infrastructure. This option allows end-users the ability to sign-in with their existing credentials. The implementation consists of enabling our IP addresses, sharing connection details, and activating the authentication process for the login and/or embeds. Regroup does not store passwords. The system can be setup to validate against both the LDAP and/or our database in order for non-LDAP users to join groups. More information is available on our helpdesk here.
Regroup integrates easily with Alertus Technologies, as well as in-building, outdoor and local area alert systems to produce a seamless emergency notification network that covers everything from text-to-speech interfaces for PA and fire systems, alert beacons, sirens, digital signage, desktop alerts, IP phones and TV screens. Consistent messages can be targeted and immediately sent to in-building and outdoor alert systems as well to mobile, social media, email and web. This can be done all at the same time from Regroup’s easy to use, one-click multi-platform mass notifications system.

ESRI provides Geo-Mapping Data to state/local government agencies for a wide variety of uses including emergency messaging. We have the ability to import an ESRI Map Document (MXD) and allow our clients to use this as a base map in our Geo-Targeting service, to draw a multi-point polygon shape on the map to deliver a notification to the users located within the boundaries of the polygon.
Regroup seamlessly integrates with leading digital signage providers including Four Winds, Visix and Crestron to easily trigger the display of notifications. Messages and alerts can be posted either through Regroup’s intuitive “Post a Message” page (simultaneously with other communication channels) or automatically via a secure URL that is polled for content to trigger the notification to digital signage.
Integrating Regroup with sirens and Public Address (PA) systems such as ATI, Visiplex and Valcom unifies mass communication technologies to quickly and effectively reach employees, students and visitors en masse.
