Southern Glazer's mission is to be the world's pre-eminent selling,
logistics, and data insights company for alcoholic beverages. Each day,
the company strives to exceed all expectations of its trading partners
by delivering world-class service and results in every facet of its
business. To achieve this requires close partnerships with proven,
world-class solution providers – which is why Southern Glazer's chose
Everbridge to be the critical event management platform for its
enterprise Business Continuity program.

In the face of weather emergencies and other potential incidents that
could impact sales, distribution, or warehouse operations, the company
is committed to ensuring employee safety and maintaining delivery
continuity to all customers and partners. Southern Glazer's selected
Everbridge as a partner to help uphold this commitment by providing
comprehensive threat response and critical communications capabilities.

"Employee safety and enterprise resiliency are paramount to our
organization and we continually seek innovative solutions and

leveraging their platform every day to keep our team safe and informed
during a wide range of potential disruptions and events."

With Safety Connection, Southern Glazer's can locate remote employees
who are in the proximity of a threat, confirm their safety, send them
instructions, and gain field-sourced situational intelligence. The
Everbridge platform also ensures important information can be delivered
to employees using several different methods, such as SMS, voice, email,
digital signage, alert systems, and even sirens. Multiple methods of
delivery help to ensure reliable communication, even when certain modes
may be unavailable due to the severity of the critical event. Everbridge
has multiple layers of redundancy built-in to ensure rapid and reliable
delivery, giving organizations near real-time verification, over
numerous devices and contact paths.

"There is little, if any, warning when an emergency event or critical
business incident takes place," said Jaime Ellertson, CEO of Everbridge.
"Companies need to be able to immediately share critical information
with employees and respond to situations at a moment's notice. We are
thrilled to welcome Southern Glazer's as a customer."
