Desktop Alert may be international, but follows the tradition of great New Jersey innoventions. Conceived in Chatham as a response to the horrific events of 9/11, founder Howard Ryan saw the same cars were parked at the train station, dusty and unmoved for a week, and knew their owners might not ever come back for them. This was the impetus for Desktop Alert. Ryan determined he could change how emergency communications were alerted in future events and could significantly mitigate subsequent emergent events based on the rapid dissemination of actionable intelligence to those in harm’s way. Armed with the desire to see that this would never happen again with such a toll on human lives and collateral damage, Ryan developed DTA to make that a fact instead of a desire.
Desktop Alert is proud that the United States Government relies on them to protect and serve those who protect and serve us, and proudly operates in Chatham as a top rate Mass Notification Provider worldwide.
