BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ:EVBG), the global leader in critical event management and enterprise safety software applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, today announced that Safety Connection™ has been named the winner of the 2018 Campus Safety BEST Awards in the Incident Management & Response, Communications Products category. The awards program recognizes superlative security, law enforcement, emergency management and safety solutions for K-12 institutions, universities and healthcare organizations.
"Campus Safety magazine takes pride in focusing on content that helps protection professionals in the healthcare and education markets keep their students, teachers, patients, visitors and campuses safe and secure," said Robin Hattersley Gray, executive editor of Campus Safety. All entries were evaluated on aspects such as innovation, functionality and benefits to the installer, and were judged by a panel of industry leaders and the editors of Campus Safety magazine.
Part of the Everbridge Critical Event Management™ platform, Safety Connection has been widely leveraged by global organizations including universities, hospitals, high tech businesses and pharmaceutical companies across their campus environments, as well as to keep mobile and traveling employees, students and staff safe and informed during critical events and business disruptions.
“When protecting distributed student and employee populations across large, multi-building campuses, traditional approaches to physical security alone cannot keep people safe,” said Annie Asrari, director of product management for Safety Connection at Everbridge. “It is an honor to have Safety Connection recognized as a premier duty of care and critical event management solution for businesses, airports, hospitals and colleges, helping to protect traveling employees, pinpointing the actual location of people on campuses amid an active shooter episode, systematically checking on the safety of field workers and security guards, and expanding the geographies in which companies feel safe to operate.”
Everbridge Safety Connection combines automated workflow processes with dynamically-updated location data down to the airport, street, building, floor or conference room level which can be aggregated from multiple sources including wired and wireless network access points, building access control and badging systems (such as magnetic card readers or badges for building entry), and travel information including corporate travel management and office hoteling systems.
