University Personal Safety Platform

“No other company offers a full end-to-end solution for personal safety across our campus. The general consensus amongst our students and staff is that we are now taking progressive steps towards their safety and protection.”

The scenario

With more than 11,000 employees and 35,000 students, this leading school understands that safety is of paramount concern. Following a rise in the number of violent incidents reported on campus, the university adopted a personal safety platform to encourage a new culture of safety and security.

Outcome: A new culture of safety and security

How Locate Global helps

The Locate Global smartphone app provides a direct connection to the university’s security response team, so that any user can easily communicate their safety needs. Packed with easy to use features, it helps students, studying or living on site, as well as campus staff and security personnel to stay safe throughout their day.

The app also enables the school administration to gather crowd sourced intelligence, increasing situational awareness across the different campuses. All data is encrypted in transit using secure protocols.

Benefits of the Locate Global platform

Through our platform, the campus administration can create zones to automatically warn students via the app when they have entered a potentially dangerous area, preventing incidents. The peer-to-peer journey features also allows students to virtually walk their friends (or other contacts) to a destination by monitoring their location on a real time map. Users can also easily add emergency contacts depending on their location or the time of day.

Thanks to the platform, the university can now receive Geo-tagged reports with text and photographic evidence attached, enabling real time intelligence of safety concerns or incidents across the entire campus.

In the event of a serious incident, such as an active-shooter on campus, the university can use the cloud-based dashboard to easily send mass communications out to its thousands of students via SMS, push notifications or email.
