Sounds Like Success: How Higher Ed Can Leverage Mass Communication Tech
College campuses are disjointed and divided with little continuity. That can make mass communication a challenge.
However, the right technology solution makes it possible. In this Sounds Like Success miniseries on industry-specific applications for mass communication, Brad Jungemann, Territory Manager Southeast, Singlewire Software and Michael Peveler, VP of Sales, AtlasIED talked about higher ed applications.
“The commonality on campuses is IT and security, which is where we sit. There is a crisis of need for many reasons for a single coverage model for emergency notifications,” Peveler shared.
This coverage concern isn’t just for interior spaces, but also exterior ones. Universities can have all capabilities under a single solution. “Our system and your software provide great coverage from an audio and visual standpoint,” Peveler added.
Jungemann mentioned that the design of the system is part of the process. For example, a single mode of communication may not be effective. “An interesting statistic is that 18–25-year-olds receive 100 text messages a day. So, we have to cut through the noise with intrusive audio.”
The volume and clarity of these messages and the visual boards are all part of a larger system of security capabilities around restricting access or notification of a breach of an area. “It’s an entire ecosystem of security that allows students, staff, faculty and visitors to see and hear notifications and information,” Peveler shared.
All of this can be under on infrastructure to simplify. Jungemann also noted the mobility of the solution. “You can make announcements from anywhere, including a mobile device.”
