Singlewire Software has acquired visitor and student management platform Visitor Aware.

Singlewire currently makes InformaCast, an emergency notification and incident management system. Adding Visitor Aware to its product lineup will help the company expand its offerings in the visitor and student management space.

The deal stemmed from its clients’ request for those capabilities, said Paul Shain, CEO of Singlewire Software, in a statement.

“It’s becoming more evident that school safety starts at the front door, so when our school customers started asking us for help with visitor check-in and student management, we went looking for a partner that could offer a solution that would exceed their expectations,” he said.

At the same time, Visitor Aware creator Bennett Stone said the deal will allow it to expand its software with InformaCast’s emergency notification features.

“We’re excited to join Singlewire so organizations can add InformaCast emergency notification to our Visitor Aware software extending the reach of critical messages to help create a safer and more responsive environment,” he said.
