Framingham, MA (PRWEB) July 9, 2010
Rave Mobile Safety, the leading provider of software solutions for individual, group and public safety, today announced that the Morehouse School of Medicine will leverage Rave’s award-winning suite of safety software to help keep its campus protected. By implementing both Rave Alert for rapid & reliable emergency notification, and Rave Guardian for enhanced individual safety, the Morehouse School of Medicine has transformed the cell phones of students & staff into powerful campus safety tools.
“It is imperative to have a comprehensive campus safety program within higher education. By adding both Rave Alert and Rave Guardian, we feel confident that The Morehouse School of Medicine has taken a significant step in making the campus safer for our students, faculty, and staff,” said Joe Chevalier, Chief of Police at The Morehouse School of Medicine. “The two solutions are extremely complementary, giving us the ability to communicate critical information with individuals, and allowing individuals to communicate with campus safety whenever & wherever they need.”
“The Morehouse School of Medicine is among the nation's leading educators of primary care physicians, and its stature and reputation have grown exponentially over the past decade,” said Tom Axbey, Chief Executive Officer for Rave Mobile Safety. “Part of that reputation is due to their commitment to creating a safe environment for their faculty and staff, and we are proud to be their partners in that endeavor.”
Rave Guardian is a patented technology that enables users to transform their mobile phones into GPS-enabled personal safety devices, which allows them to be monitored by and instantly connected with campus police. Rave Guardian works on all cell phones and carriers. Rave Guardian can be used in “passive” mode whereby a user activates the Guardian timer via their cell phone to be monitored by police until his or her safe arrival to a destination. Alternatively, it can be used in “active mode” through a pre-programmed Guardian panic button that instantly informs police that the individual is threatened or having a medical crisis.
Rave Alert is the highest performing, most reliable broadcast alerting solution on the market. It is fully hosted, and has a simple-to-use interface that provides the ability to quickly send emergency notifications and important announcements via text, email, recorded voice message, digital signage, Facebook, public address system, Twitter or any other RSS feed. Rave Alert also possesses extremely robust data management capabilities, allowing institutions to easily manage an ever-changing population of users.
