Who Does Mass Notification Systems?

Anyone have experience designing mass notification systems?

It is a ambiguous term - mass notification - that could possibly encompass a handful of systems.

I am curious to get your take on the subject. From your experience, what did the system look like? How is it used? What features are important?
