HipLink (formerly Semotus Solutions) is a privately held company that provides text and voice based wireless alert management solutions for emergency response, alarm management, mass notification and business continuity. The company’s flagship product is a wireless alerting platform that pushes out alerts via multiple channels (Pager, SMS, Email, Voicemail etc.) on all major cellular networks in the US, based on events generated by monitoring systems (typically indicating equipment failure or warnings).

The Folio3 team initially used the traditional waterfall model for development (with detailed specification documents for both the technical and functional design) and Microsoft Project as the project management tool. After the first year however the team switched to Agile Development as the development methodology and now uses Target Process as the project management tool.
