Bio-Key International’s New Emergency Platform for Schools

August 26, 2008

This past weekend, Bio-Key International (BYKI) launched a new emergency platform, with a focus primarily on improving emergency management in schools- both at  a K-12 and a college level.

According to the company, the new platform can provide administrators with an efficient solution for distributing school wide emergency and non-emergency alerts to faculty, students, and staff.

Benefits include silent alerts, which can be sent directly to administrators or campus police officers and incident updates, giving administrators the ability to update faculty and staff on an evolving situation; and the ability to link school resource officers directly to local 911 call centers, providing immediate emergency dispatch.

TWST interviewed Bio-Key International CEO Mike De Pasquale this past week. To learn more about Bio-Key International, how the company operates, and its plan for the future, click here.
