Alert signals can be annoying as all get out, until you experience their true value. How many times has that seat belt alert light flashed and annoyed you into compliance? But when you have an accident you’re grateful for the alert, even more so in buckling up. That annoying buzzer in your house makes a terrible racket, however, my mom can attest to the fact that it saved her life during a recent house fire! When alerts can be put in place in managing your wireless device spend/usage it may not save your life, but it will save your enterprise a ton of money, and the corporate bean counters will be glad you did.
