Questions to Ask About the Platform

If you’re looking for critical incident management software to help your organization mitigate risks and streamline your response to student wellness and emergency incidents, here are some key questions to ask public safety app vendors before moving forward:

  • Do they provide your team with the data and intelligence to respond to critical incidents up to 50% faster?
  • What solution do they offer to address the challenges and complexities associated with providing security inside a multi-story building? Can the solution pinpoint the exact floor, wing and room where an alert is triggered, providing a 3D view of where calls for help are raised, as well as the location of each officer in the building?
  • Can they provide a real-time view of where key assets are e.g. building wardens and fire marshalls, so you can implement an effective emergency management process across multiple sites?
  • Do they offer command and control software that enables you to visualize the availability and location of your security team, openly communicate with them, coordinate their response, issue orders and see the result of those actions, and issue new commands–all in real time, with a common operating view?
  • Can they help your security team optimize the way they patrol designated areas and maintain a physical presence across your large, complex site?
