ISTE 17: Singlewire, The Creators of Informacast Emergency Communications Platform, Releases “Enhancing Safety and Communication in K12 Schools: A 12-Month Guide” Ahead Of ISTE 2017
Singlewire has developed an emergency communications platform designed for schools, college campuses, factories, offices, and just about anywhere else you would find lot’s of people at a time. Their comprehensive system, called Informacast, links all communication channels to one source including mobile phones, notification boxes and systems, phone systems, text alerts, and other messaging. This unified approach to communication insures that students, workers, teachers and visitors are all on the same page when any kind of situation occurs.
The company focuses on one thing, communication at critical times. “With InformaCast alert software from Singlewire, we connect people when and where it matters. When an emergency occurs, our mass notification system helps keep people safe and informed, everywhere, every time” the company says on their website.
That’s why they’ve released an e-book for K-12 schools everywhere entitled; “Enhancing Safety and Communication in K12 Schools: A 12-Month Guide”
“Enhancing Safety and Communication in K12 Schools: A 12-Month Guide” provides a year-long plan to prepare for events like severe weather and active shooters, and ways to better communicate critical information throughout a school or district. It also offers recommendations and guidance for what kind of capabilities school officials should look for in mass notification technology solutions.
“School safety is a year-round priority, but it can be challenging to know what aspects to focus on at what point in the year,” said Pat Scheckel, vice president of marketing for Singlewire Software. “With this e-book we provide actionable tips that K-12 school officials can implement and offer a plan to manage school safety demands.”
The e-book includes a different topic for each month of the calendar year. Additional topics covered in the e-book include:
- Tips to Enhance Communication and Connectivity
- Strategies for Clear Communication During a Crisis
- Protecting Schools from Nearby Threats
- Why Mobile Matters
- And more
The e-book is available for download here.
“Schools and districts need to keep safety top of mind whether it’s the beginning of the school year, or summer break,” said Scheckel. “This e-book covers topics school safety officials can examine at different points of the year to ensure they are doing everything they can to share important information when an emergency occurs.”
You can meet with Singlewire to discuss the report and your school or campuses safety plans at ISTE 2017 in San Antonio, June 25th-28th, booth #858 and online here.
