FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Oct. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rave Mobile Safety, the trusted software partner for campus and public safety, today announced that additional higher education institutions from across the Northeast have enlisted its mass notification solution, Rave Alert. The new customers build upon Rave's market leading position in providing emergency notification and safety solutions for campuses. The company's technology is now used by higher education institutions in nearly every U.S. state. At the close of the Q2 2013, Rave reported a 99 percent customer retention rate, with 60 institutions selecting its technology to replace existing solutions from other vendors during the first six months alone.
"We strive to do everything possible to provide an environment where everyone feels safe and is aware of important news and events. Unhappy with our previous solution, we researched the options and Rave Alert became the obvious choice," said the Director of Auxiliary Services for Fitchburg State University, James Rogers. "Whether it is a targeted text message to a group of students letting them know their class has been cancelled, or an emergency notification that uses multiple communication methods, Rave Alert is easy to use."
Additional Northeast higher education institutions recently deploying Rave Alert include: Roxbury Community College, Mass Maritime Academy, Farmingdale State College, Salus University, SUNY College at Old Westbury and Westmoreland County Community College.
Rave Alert provides best-in-class, highly available mass notification solutions for enterprises, school districts and institutions nationwide. Offering multi-modal broadcast messaging through email, SMS, voice, RSS, social networks and other mechanisms, Rave Alert is the most reliable method for higher education institutions to react and respond to both emergency and day-to-day communications in a systematic, cost-effective manner. In addition to Rave Alert, the company's suite of campus safety products includes Rave Guardian, which transforms a mobile phone into a personal safety device, and EyeWitness, which allows students to confidentially text campus police about threats or issues.
"We now protect nearly 40 percent of the entire U.S. higher education population and the key to our success has been the performance of our product and direct input from our base of customers," said the President and CEO of Rave Mobile Safety, Tom Axbey. "The reliability and functionality of Rave Alert continues to an industry standard. We welcome our new customers, and along with our existing ones, look forward to continuing a dialogue that will further the capabilities of our technology."
