CENTEGIX PARTNERS WITH HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO IMPLEMENT CRISISALERT™ TO IMPROVE SAFETY IN THEIR SCHOOLS
ATLANTA, GA /June 17, 2019/ – CENTEGIX, an IoT company focused on improving the safety of our schools, announces a partnership with Hillsborough County Public Schools. School safety is one of the most pressing issues of our generation and to date, few solutions have proven effective. CENTEGIX CrisisAlert™ solution enables teachers and staff to initiate rapid response to both campus-wide emergencies, like active shooters, and everyday crisis, like medical emergencies. The resulting improved response times and immediate system-wide communication enable a rapid action and saves lives.
CENTEGIX CrisisAlert™ platform has received massive adoption since its launch in 2018, and partnering with Hillsborough is further evidence of the capabilities and maturity of the platform. Hillsborough County Public School District, located in the Tampa Bay, FL, area, has over 300 schools and over 220,000 students. They are one of the ten largest school districts in the United States and have a reputation for being an exemplary leader in education and school administration.
“The volume and severity of instances of school violence continues to increase. Until now the solutions have proven ineffective. The CENTEGIX CrisisAlert™ Platform enables the rapid and proportional response necessary to act during a life-threatening situation with unprecedented speed, allowing first responders and staff to intervene quickly and efficiently to save lives.” says Matthew Stevens, CEO of CENTEGIX. “We are excited to be partnered with Hillsborough County Public Schools, a district that continues to demonstrate visionary leadership when it comes to investing to protecting the lives of their students and staff.”
CENTEGIX will work with Hillsborough County Public Schools to deploy the CrisisAlert™ platform in over 300 schools and administration offices across Hillsborough County for the 2019-2020 school year.
CENTEGIX innovates technology to enrich and save lives. Our flagship CrisisAlert™ platform is an IoT crisis management solution that utilizes mobile and desktop applications along with a mesh network of Smart ID badges, and strobes to provide campus and district-wide protection. Instant communications through visual cues and audio integration assist in a rapid and proportional reaction to any incident or crisis. CrisisAlert™ is a force multiplier, allowing staff and security professionals to request assistance and implement emergency protocols from anywhere. We go well beyond the limitations of legacy communications devices and single-dimensional apps, because in a crisis: Every. Second. Matters.
