Madison, Wis. – July 19, 2023 – Singlewire Software, a leading mass notification technology developer, has won two Spaces4Learning 2023 New Product of the Year Awards for InformaCast with Visitor Aware. The solution won Platinum Awards in the Safety & Security – Emergency Communication categories for the K-12 and Higher Education contests. The New Product Award program honors the outstanding product development achievements of manufacturers and suppliers whose products or services are considered to be particularly noteworthy in their ability to enhance the learning environment.
“Creating a safe environment means protecting every part of a school, from the entrance to the noisiest hallways and classrooms,” said Paul Shain, president and CEO of Singlewire Software. “This award demonstrates that InformaCast with Visitor Aware is an effective safety solution for preventing unwanted guests from entering schools and ensuring everyone receives emergency communications, wherever they are.”
InformaCast with Visitor Aware helps schools, districts, colleges, and universities enhance safety and security for students and staff. InformaCast has been trusted by education organizations for years to send in-building and mobile alerts about critical events. With custom-built messages, schools can alert students and staff about any kind of incident and widely distribute information using text and audio so no one misses a message. Schools 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 schools can use the devices they already have in place and turn them into powerful safety tools.
“We congratulate all of our 2023 Spaces4Learning New Product Award winners and thank them for the work they’re doing for education,” said David Nagel, editorial director of Spaces4Learning. “Our winners are helping to make the nation’s schools safer, cleaner, more sustainable, and more conducive to fulfilling the mission of education in every way.”
