At 130% of 2021 Annual Target, CrisisAlert First Half Bookings Double Entire FY ‘20 Performance
(Atlanta, GA) July 13, 2021 – CENTEGIX™, an IoT company dedicated to innovating technology to save and enrich lives, announces surging demand for its market-leading CrisisAlert™ platform in the first half of 2021. Furthered by geographic expansion and a market maturing towards dedicated wearable solutions, CENTEGIX posted two record bookings months yielding significant year-over-year same quarter growth and smashing the previous highest bookings quarter by 66%.
The CrisisAlert™ platform is an incident alerting solution that empowers teachers and staff to call for help with the simple push of a button. The solution is unique for its ability to deliver room-level alert location, total campus coverage, immediate notification, audio and visual notification, and simple activation via a wearable badge, features no app-based competitor can replicate.
Several factors are driving a sharp increase in demand for CrisisAlert:
- Districts that previously purchased mobile phone app-based products are dissatisfied with the severe limitations of those solutions and are replacing them with newer technologies at an increasing rate. CrisisAlert is superior to app-based services because it provides room-level alert location information, audio and visual notifications, and equitable deployment to empower everyone to call for help in an emergency. Unlike apps, CrisisAlert does not depend on wi-fi or cellular networks and does not require staff to download an application to a personal mobile device.
- As school districts prepare for the new school year, the safety of staff and students remains a top priority, especially in light of the increased levels of violence communities are experiencing as COVID-19 restrictions ease.
- States and the Federal Government continue to pass legislation and make available funding to encourage districts to implement panic button solutions. In Florida, the Department of Education approved CENTEGIX CrisisAlert for districts to comply with Alyssa’s law. Nearly 20% of Florida districts have already selected CrisisAlert to protect their students, teachers, and staff.
CrisisAlert now protects nearly 1600 campuses in 16 states, an increase of 40% during 2021. In Georgia, CENTEGIX’s headquarters, CrisisAlert now protects more than one-third (1/3) of the state’s public schools in districts ranging from smaller rural schools to some of the largest metro systems.
Since its inception, CrisisAlert has successfully delivered more than 40,000 calls for help during everyday events, such as medical incidents and student altercations, to extreme campus-wide incidents such as severe weather events or weapons-related lockdowns.
“These strong first-half 2021 results demonstrate what we’ve known all along – that the market needed a better solution; one that empowers everyone to call for help with the simple press of a button, because in an emergency situation, every second matters. Increasingly district thought-leaders across the US are looking for a better way to keep their students and teachers safe,” said Matthew Stevens, CEO of CENTEGIX. “We are committed to a singular goal – innovating technology to save and enrich lives. Growth means more people are protected, and that alone is our measure of success.”
