BRUNSWICK, ME – October 16, 2013 – PenBay Solutions, the global leader in facilities GIS software, is pleased to announce the InVision Secure School Safety Portal (IVS-SSP). The IVS-SSP, an entry-level edition of InVision Secure software, is an easy-to-use, affordable, map-based system designed to meet the specific emergency planning needs of K-12 schools and districts.
Most K-12 emergency operations plans (EOP) stop at the outside of buildings, creating dangerous blind spots for emergency responders. IVS-SSP is designed to supplement existing emergency planning efforts, eliminate those blind spots, and provide a framework for sharing this information throughout school districts and with first responders.
Easily & Securely Place Floor Plans Online and Visualize Emergency Data on a Map with the InVision Secure School Safety Portal
Having key information – like current, accurate facility floor plans and campus maps – securely accessible online for school staff and emergency responders is critical. This highly secure, offsite platform lets schools create and maintain all-hazard emergency pre-plans and responses using a simple map-based interface. This provides immediate access for authorized emergency responders and school personnel for a single school or across the entire district. With IVS-SSP, schools can:
- Visualize: easily view facility floor plans, campus and emergency equipment online, on a map.
- Share: securely share your data online with EOP school staff, police, fire and other emergency response groups (or print to PDF and out to paper).
- Secure: school data is safely and securely stored offsite – if computers and documents are destroyed in a disaster, emergency plans will remain readily accessible by designated staff and emergency services.
- Maintain: Because school plans are online, they are easier to update and maintain, making them more useful for emergency personnel, better ensuring the safety of students, teachers and staff.
Fast & Affordable
“PenBay is delighted to offer the InVision Secure School Safety Portal to the K-12 community as they undertake their critical mission of protecting students, staff and assets,” said Bill Barron, CEO of PenBay Solutions. “Emergency planning should always include maps and building interiors – and school safety professionals deserve the best technology we can offer to help them share and update information in a simple, secure and cost effective manner.”
PenBay Solutions can have this easy-to-use, affordable, all-hazard emergency system up and running with accurate plans in 30 days for most K-12 schools.
