The challenges for educational institutions include:

  • Increasing catchment indicators
  • Reducing dropout rates
  • Increasing two-way communication between students and teachers through secure channels
  • Implementing mobile communication channels in emergency plans
  • Delivering timely reminders to parents and students
  • Delivering urgent alerts and notifications

Internal Incident Management

Last-minute class schedule or outdoor event changes due to bad weather or incidents are full of stress and challenging to manage effectively without a communication plan.

An unexpected threat to campus safety typically leaves very little time for ad hoc planning or response. A preparedness plan is essential, and technology can be a central element in the plan.

Prepare for critical incidents with rapid internal communications using 2-way messaging as part of your business continuity plan.  Trigger alerts from any web-enabled device.
