Easiest way would probably be in javascript, take a look at this:

Hi, yllai.

Here's how you do it from within PHP (but in reality this is javascript!)

Assuming that you have variable $success (TRUE on success) that holds whether the information was updated successfully.

if ($success) {
echo "<script>alert('Information updated')</script>";
echo "<script>navigate('other.php')</script>";
} else {
//....failed to update info

Will not work if your visitor's browser have javascript disabled.
