Connecting students and staff with safety
Role call: A modern solution to cross-campus safety
To ensure the safety and protection of students and faculty members on campus, in 2021 Florida Southern College (FSC) rolled out the Zecure personal safety app to replace their current ‘grey key fob’ transmitter for first-year population and new students. Approximately 5,000 users received instant access, providing both students and faculty with direct connection to the college’s security response and health & safety teams.
Enable students and faculty members to quickly raise an alert
Campus evacuation alerts
The straight-A solution
The Zecure safety app transformed connected smartphones into a personal safety device and GPS tracker, while the cloud-based incident management platform gives Optum admins the critical data they need to accurately locate and communicate with staff anywhere, anytime – with invaluable core features:
Raise an alert
Real time 24/7 monitoring
Track a visit
2 way messaging
On campus, in practice
Maintenance issues (i.e. closed corridors)
Vandalism & theft
As an extremely busy campus covering a wide area, the flow, speed and accuracy of information for FSC was key for teachers, students and security staff.
Thanks to the adoption of Zecure, FSC students and staff are now able to report incidents and raise alerts through a simple user interface. In turn, the FSC Safety and Security teams will be monitoring 24/7 and can react in real-time, passing information to the relevant people and dispatching security staff or emergency services if required.
Our team went through extensive evaluation and testing to deliver a bespoke solution covering all needs required.
Lots of people mean lots of potential risk – and without the right information, even just to keep corridors clear you’re fighting an uphill battle. We worked closely with FSC to design their perfect solution:
We carried out a number pilots and conducted user feedback to design custom app features
Zone control and messaging allows for smooth flow of foot traffic cross campus
Integrating seamlessly with current campus security teams
We carried out extensive tailored training to both staff & admin users
