CENTEGIX Doubled CrisisAlert System Implementations in 2022
In 2022, the CrisisAlert platform delivered more than 80,000 alerts, an increase of more than 100% over 2021.
ATLANTA — CENTEGIX, an incident response solutions provider, announces it has doubled the number of sites protected by its CrisisAlert system over the past 12 months to 4,000 sites in 28 states across the United States. CrisisAlert now protects an estimated five million people across the country, including three of the 10 largest school districts in the country.
The CrisisAlert solution sends instant communication to administrators and first responders with the simple push of a button through visual cues and audio integration, enabling rapid response to any incident or crisis, says the company. Campus-wide alerts communicate emergency information using colored strobe lights, desktop alerts, and intercom integration.
In 2022, the CrisisAlert platform delivered more than 80,000 alerts, an increase of more than 100% over 2021. One of the districts that implemented the solution in 2022 was Olathe Public Schools in Olathe, Kansas.
“We’ve seen multiple benefits since implementing CrisisAlert in our district. It has dramatically reduced response time, which is especially important for medical emergencies,” said Brent Kiger, Director of Safety Services for Olathe Public Schools. “Additionally, the data CENTEGIX provides allows us to align district resources to help support whatever is happening in the schools.”
Dr. Brent Yeager, Olathe Public Schools Superintendent added, “The feedback has been off the charts from our staff for them feeling empowered and safe in their work environment. I will be surprised if almost all of the other districts in our area don’t have this in the next year.”
Also in 2022, CENTEGIX says it continued to expand to meet the growing demand for its CrisisAlert incident response platform. In addition to growing its team by more than 50%, CENTEGIX also launched its Advisory Board, composed of leaders in school safety and crisis communications. The Advisory Board will support CENTEGIX’s efforts to innovate technology to empower and protect staff and students in schools across the country.
CENTEGIX also expanded the capabilities of its CrisisAlert platform through strategic partnerships with Ident-A-Kid and SingleWire. The new partnerships extend the ability of schools to maintain a safe and secure environment for students, staff, and visitors through CrisisAlert, the company says.
“Our tremendous growth over the past year is a testament to our commitment to our mission to create safer spaces by innovating technology to empower and protect people and the impact that our CrisisAlert platform has had in schools and communities nationwide,” said CENTEGIX CEO Brent Cobb.
