CENTEGIX Launches Safety Blueprint Digital Mapping Tool for Schools

CENTEGIX, a school safety technology company, announces the launch of Safety Blueprint, a digital mapping tool said to provide a dynamic, multilayer map of all campus facilities and spaces, including the precise location of all safety assets, to optimize incident management, emergency response, and safety planning.
Ideal for schools, healthcare facilities, government facilities, private business campuses, and more, CENTEGIX Safety Blueprint provides a user-editable architecture map of all buildings and spaces, overlaid with safety and security assets such as AED, fire alarms, first aid kits and extinguishers, cameras, and access control technology points, says the company. Additional layers can be added, enabling multiple departments to view their own department-level assets and share the location and details for each asset.
Assets also have digital tags that allow customers to manage expiration dates with custom notifications. Users can update and edit the architecture map at any time without having to re-engage an architect for every change to a floor plan. Changes made to the core map are instantly reflected on all existing layers, according to the company. Safety Blueprint can also be used for evacuation and reunification planning, new construction, or temporary building planning and installation.
“The minute we receive a map in an architectural drawing or PDF is the minute it is out of date. Snapshots in time solve today’s problems, but they create another set of problems and costs. If I have to call an architect or vendor to update maps, then I am wasting time and money,” said Chris Farkas, COO, Hillsborough County Public Schools. “That is why CENTEGIX’s Safety Blueprint is the best of both worlds: we can make updates in real-time and we don’t have to spend money every time we make a change, like consolidating rooms or adding a mobile classroom. The asset management and inventory management capability is icing on the cake.”
The new tool is available as a stand-alone product or can be integrated with CENTEGIX’s CrisisAlert™, a wearable panic button for incident response, creating a multilayered safety solution connecting staff badges, facility maps, strobes, intercoms, and screens, to campus first responders and 911 dispatch.
“CrisisAlert is the only incident response solution that delivers precise room-level location information, and we understand how important ‘location’ and mapping situational awareness are to safety planning. We heard from our customers that they wanted real-time visibility of their facilities and outdoor spaces, including the location of security assets. There is no other solution on the market that offers a true interactive ‘live’ map that can be easily updated and shared as needed to meet the needs of multiple departments across an organization,” said Brent Cobb, CEO of CENTEGIX. “Live, dynamic mapping capabilities improve situational awareness, response times, planning, and communication, all of which are crucial for maintaining a safe and secure environment in schools, the workplace, or public spaces.”
