CrisisGo’s Safety iPass Wins 2021 EdTech Breakthrough Award
Prestigious Award Program Recognizes Outstanding Educational Technology Products and Companies
St. Louis, Missouri — CrisisGo, a leading provider in emergency communications, incident management, and student/staff health management, announces EdTech Breakthrough; a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market, has selected CrisisGo's Safety iPass solution as the winner of its "Classroom Management Solution of the Year" award in the third annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program.
Safety iPass resulted from CrisisGo's COVID-19 Crowdsourcing and Safety Research Project started in early March 2020. CrisisGo's Safety iPass solution offers the most streamlined and secure way for schools to manage the full scope of their COVID-19 safety needs. Schools use Safety iPass to safely admit students, staff, and visitors into school buildings or school buses using the pre-certified digital badge to confirm that every person is safe to return. The innovative solution provides pre-certification, temperature screening, entry verification, and close contact tracing.
"With Safety iPass, schools can cover the full spectrum of COVID-19 safety, from pre-screening and entry management to actionable reports, close contact tracing, and escalating safety data to local health departments," said CrisisGo CEO, Jim Spicuzza. "Safety iPass provides schools with the technology needed to manage safety protocols and immediately respond to incidents while returning to school in a COVID-19 environment."
The mission of the EdTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize innovation, hard work, and success in a range of educational technology categories, including Student Engagement, School Administration, Adaptive Learning, STEM Education, e-Learning, Career Preparation and many more. This year's program attracted more than 2,000 nominations from over 17 different countries worldwide.
"CrisisGo's Safety iPass is helping schools to enable their students to safely return while we are still in the throes of the pandemic. Students are safe, and staff has confidence that all people entering the school have gone through pre-certification at home or manual certification at school, with visitor access strictly controlled," said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. "Like a 'fast pass' for airports and services, Safety iPass speeds up the ability to confirm stakeholders' safety status and get them into a safe learning environment while monitoring school safety information for data-driven decisions. We are pleased to present CrisisGo with our award for 'Classroom Management Solution of the Year.”
Additionally, students can submit tips or report incidents at school to their school's safety team through the app. Safety iPass includes:
- A daily pre-certification survey including a COVID-19 symptoms report and temperature check
- Entry validation through the CrisisGo app or pre-determined ID badges
- Safety data monitoring to initiate Close Contact Listing
- Close Contact Listing using entry badge scanning or our advanced hybrid scheduling model to determine potential exposure
