Technology Based School Reimagines Safety with GSOC as a Service
A fast-growing national private school with multiple campuses takes a lean, technology-driven approach to education that connects teachers, parents, and students. When the head of safety joined the organization, there were four locations with different burglar alarm monitoring services, only one location had cameras—and there was no receptionist so teachers would have to stop classes to allow deliveries or parents, students, or guests into the building. The disparate and decentralized nature of the systems left the schools vulnerable and safety operations difficult to manage. Before joining the school, the head of safety worked at large global enterprises as corporate security manager and a rapidly growing company as the head of global security. He knew firsthand what strong, centralized and well-integrated security looks like, and he knew technology could minimize or eliminate the need for guards, gates, and guns.
