Proven Safety In Education

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.

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

Control zones

On campus, in practice

Main challenges:

Maintenance issues (i.e. closed corridors)

Vandalism & theft

Suspicious persons

Fire hazards

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.
