Educational institutions and corps are increasingly demanding better ways to proactively manage overall safety and emergency situations on and around campus to care for the well being of their entire population - In Case of Crisis GM Christopher Britton
Herndon, VA (PRWEB) August 04, 2014
Irving Burton Associates’ In Case of Crisis, a leading mobile emergency preparedness and response app, today announced that it has been named to the 2014 eCampus News’ Readers’ Choice Award list. The award honors the best products and services in educational technology as chosen by readers.
“Educational institutions and corporations are increasingly demanding better ways to proactively manage overall safety and emergency situations on and around campus to care for the well being of their entire population,” said Christopher Britton, General Manager, IBA’s In Case of Crisis. “We are honored to be recognized by eCampus News as one of the top companies in the market.”
Hundreds of educators and administrators from colleges and universities across North America nominated their favorite ed-tech products or services this past spring. In order to maintain the integrity of the program, nominations from vendors were not accepted. When submitting nominations, readers were asked to describe how they were using each product to improve teaching, learning, or campus administration—and to what effect.
“The result is a list of ed-tech products and services that have proven to be effective in colleges and universities nationwide,” said eCampus News Editorial Director Denny Carter. “We hope readers will find this information valuable as they consider what technologies they should use on their own campuses.”
Utilized by leading corporate, education and government organizations including 24 Hour Fitness, George Mason University, Providence College, William & Mary, the award-winning In Case of Crisis mobile solution allows convenient and secure access to emergency information with features such as easy-to-read instructional and building diagrams, one-tap key contact calling, push notifications for updates/alerts, maps and incident reporting. The app includes access to a library of 85 possible emergency event scenarios with templates and images.
