Madison, Wis. – Jun. 17, 2022 – Singlewire Software has won a SmartBrief 2022 EdTech Reader’s Choice Award in the Safety and Security Category for InformaCast Incident Management. The awards recognize the most effective products selected by SmartBrief readers that help improve learning and scale up success.
“The need for solutions that go beyond simply sending out alerts has never been more critical in education,” said Paul Shain, president and CEO of Singlewire Software. “Being selected by the readers of SmartBrief to receive this award emphasizes the importance and viability of our InformaCast solution in schools and districts.”
InformaCast Incident Management is a centralized location where users can designate certain notifications as relevant to a particular event. This can include the initial alert, follow-up messages, and “All Clear” messages to signal the event has been resolved. Users are also able to upload relevant resources into the incident hub to help give safety team members all the information and assistance they require to easily manage the situation. This can include safety checklists, building floor plans, and links to external resources like security camera feeds. This reduces the need to navigate long lists or complex menus. When the incident is over, a report is created that allows users to review how the event was managed and inform future adjustments to ensure the most effective response possible. SmartBrief readers cited the solution’s “ease of use” as one of its primary benefits.
“The ability to automate a school safety plan saves time and reduces the risk of crucial steps being missed,” said Shain. “The incident management capabilities now available within InformaCast empower schools to be more proactive when they face a crisis.”
