It is critical for institutions to deliver real-time, accessible safety plans campus-wide before, during and following an emergency or crisis situation, said Lee Prevost, president of SchoolDude.
Cary, NC (PRWEB) January 07, 2015
SchoolDude, a leading provider of operations management solutions, today announced that its new mobile safety platform, CrisisManager, was named one of 13 distinguished higher education products by media outlet HigherEd TechDecisions. SchoolDude has added nearly 50 CrisisManager clients since launching in October 2014.
CrisisManager received the prestigious honor based on the mobile platform’s ability to take emergency response plans and procedures, many of them formerly paper-based, and make them dynamic and actionable on the mobile devices of staff, faculty and students.
“It is critical for institutions to deliver real-time, accessible safety plans campus-wide before, during and following an emergency or crisis situation,” said Lee Prevost, president of SchoolDude. “SchoolDude is pleased to receive this respected honor from HigherEd TechDecisions, as we continue to empower institutions with tools that will help them keep their campuses safe.”
CrisisManager’s safety plans, accessible to individuals with or without a Wi-Fi connection, are fully customizable based on an organization’s needs and/or scenario, e.g., severe weather, school delays/cancellations, violence, and can be updated at any time.
HigherEd TechDecisions’ Best Products of 2014 were determined based on reader nominations and the publication’s editorial team. Lt. Mike Ceperley, emergency management coordinator of Northwest Missouri State University, nominated CrisisManager.
“Northwest Missouri State University is a leader in emergency management practices and we thank them for this nomination,” added Prevost.
