The current operation of online programs for sending follow-up alerts to optical, X-ray and gamma-ray telescopes shows the feasibility of neutrino-triggered multi-messenger astronomy. Building on the experience of these programs, we generalize the approach and merge them into a combined generic framework. The upgrade consists of a single event stream selected at the South Pole and transmitted North, where an online search for transients and flaring points is performed. The performance will be compared to the previous online system, as well as to established offline point source searches in IceCube. Potential discovery scenarios accessible with the new system will be discussed.
