Madison, Wis. – June 29, 2023 – Singlewire Software, a leading mass notification technology developer, has won a 2023 BEST Award from Commercial Integrator in the Mass Notification Emergency Communication category for InformaCast with Visitor Aware. This award marks the fourth win for the company in this category. Award winners are selected by a panel of judges who assess entries based on three separate metrics: a product’s most important functional features; the benefits the product provides to the integrator; and the product’s design and/or technical innovation.

“At Singlewire Software, we are always committed to empowering organizations to effectively handle any emergencies or critical events in any form,” said Paul Shain, president and CEO of Singlewire Software. “This award highlights our priority of helping people stay safe and the value of InformaCast with Visitor Aware integrating visitor screening, mass notification, and incident management tools into a unified robust solution.”

InformaCast with Visitor Aware helps organizations enhance safety and security. InformaCast has been trusted by organizations for years to send in-building and mobile alerts about critical events. With custom-built messages, organizations can alert their people about any kind of incident and widely distribute information using text and audio so no one misses a message. Organizations can leverage real-time insights, virtual collaboration, digital safety resources, and reporting to help with their emergency response. These offerings are combined with visitor screening using the new Visitor Aware tool. Organizations can screen visitor IDs against sex offender databases, government watchlists, and legal injunctions to prevent unwanted guests from entering their premises. Visitor Aware uses encrypted facial recognition, resulting in fewer false positives, and issues with visitors attempting to enter buildings can trigger InformaCast notifications. This combined solution set also requires no proprietary hardware, meaning organizations can use the devices they already have in place and turn them into powerful safety tools.

“The past 12 months have been equal parts challenging and opportune for the commercial AV integration channel,” said Dan Ferrisi, editor-in-chief of Commercial Integrator. “Despite escalating labor costs, interest-rate hikes and general economic tumult, integrators have seized on society’s desire to enjoy communal spaces and communal experiences, all of which must be enhanced by AV technology. The BEST Awards represent CI’s best effort to spotlight the technology tools that make those experiences indelible.”
