Madison, Wis – Feb. 1, 2023 – Singlewire Software, the leader in solutions that help keep people safe and informed, announces its acquisition of Visitor Aware, a robust tool for visitor and student management. The acquisition enables Singlewire to expand its suite of safety and communication offerings with visitor and student management capabilities that add to the emergency notification and incident management offerings of its InformaCast software.
“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,” said Paul Shain, president and CEO of Singlewire Software. “Visitor Aware develops state-of-the-art safety solutions that help organizations keep their building secure and their people protected, which pairs perfectly with our mission of keeping people safe and informed, everywhere. Every time.”
Visitor Aware provides schools and other organizations the tools to screen visitors so they can identify threats before unwanted guests gain access to sensitive areas. Visitors have their IDs scanned when they enter a building. That information is used in conjunction with encrypted facial recognition to screen visitors against national sex offender and government watchlists and active legal injunctions. Potential issues are flagged to prevent guests from further entering a building, and approved guests are given a printed pass so they can proceed. Visitor Aware also offers tools for volunteer management, tardiness tracking, secure student release and pick-up, rostering and reunification, and setting up a tip line for potential threats.
“An effective safety plan relies on strong communication,” said Bennett Stone, creator of Visitor Aware. “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.”
Visitor Aware is primarily used in K-12 schools but has applications in healthcare, manufacturing, higher education, and other businesses. To learn more about Visitor Aware, visit www.singlewire.com/visitor-aware.
