Nebraska, Oklahoma State University, Arkansas University and Dozens of Other New Partner Institutions Highlight Strong Trend of Migrations to Rave
Rave Mobile Safety (Rave), the trusted software partner for campus and public safety, today announced that more than 50 additional higher education institutions have chosen Rave as their safety partner in recent months. This continues the growing trend of institutions moving to Rave’s technology to upgrade their safety infrastructure. Rave’s solutions are used at more than 1,000 campuses and in nearly every U.S. state, with continued growth building upon a market leadership position punctuated by a 99 percent customer retention rate.
Rave Alert provides best-in-class, highly available emergency notification solutions for institutes of higher education nationwide. Offering multi-modal broadcast messaging through email, SMS, voice, RSS, social networks and other mechanisms, Rave Alert is the most reliable method to react and respond to both emergency and day-to-day communications in a systematic, cost-effective manner.
“While investigating different solutions, Rave immediately impressed us,” said Bret Ingerman, vice president for information technology at Tallahassee Community College. “Rave Alerts’ ease-of-use, robust multi-channel capabilities and ability to seamlessly integrate with our current and future systems, using powerful tools like CAP, made it stand out from the rest.”
Rave Guardian, the nation’s first and most widely deployed campus safety app, has also seen strong growth with dozens of institutions choosing the industry leader’s patented solution in the past few months. The Rave Guardian App creates a virtual safety network of “personal guardians,” such as friends, family and campus safety, resulting in improved student security. Leveraging Rave’s public safety-grade Software-as-a-Service platform, its features include:
- Guardian Timer: Once set, selected Guardians are notified and automatically provided with the user’s location and profile in order to proactively identify and check-in on the individual. If the user does not deactivate their timer, an escalation process ensures the proper responders are notified.
- Panic Button: Provides immediate connection to campus safety with GPS location and personal profile information.
- Anonymous Crime Reports: Enables 2-way communication and crime tip reporting via text and picture messaging.
“Empowering our students with the best in safety tools is of paramount importance,” said Scott Law, director, Campus Public Safety of Drake University. “After looking at the available solutions, we chose Rave Guardian as the app to put in our students hands because of not only the robust features but also Rave’s solid performance and industry leading reputation. Going with anything less than the best for a safety application just didn’t make sense.”
Rave’s market leading campus safety solutions will be demonstrated at the IACLEA Conference, taking place June 20 – 24 inMontreal. Attendees are invited to visit Rave at booth #61 in the IACLEA Exhibit Hall, located in the Hilton Montreal Bonaventure.
“Since the company’s founding, our goal has always been to deliver powerful, scalable and easy-to-use solutions that allow institutions to be safer through better and more effective communication,” said Tom Axbey, CEO of Rave Mobile Safety. “Our track record of growth and customer retention speaks to our success in delivering valued solutions to our client partners.”
