WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 15, 2015) – IQ Onsite, a Daytona Beach-based technology company, will present its “Campus Ping” security app to safety leaders at the Campus Safety National Forum June 24-26 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City.
The annual conference – aimed at security, emergency management, law enforcement and school and hospital administrators – will feature products and services from more than 60 companies. It will include sessions on topics such as compliance, threat assessments and security infrastructure upgrades.
Jim Beckmann, founder of IQ Onsite, said the thought of introducing his Campus Ping app at the conference was an easy decision.
“A study by the Pew Research Center in Washington shows that 85 % of Americans between the ages of 18-29 are smart phone users. This makes Campus Ping widely accessible to students by using the device already in their pockets,” he said. “Our app is designed to open the lines of communication between students, faculty and security, and what better place to demonstrate its safety benefits than at a security conference?”
Beckmann said the custom app is available for Apple and Android smart phone users at participating colleges, universities and school districts on iTunes or Google Play. Whether there is a cost to the user depends on the participating school.
“We’ve created an app that uses the latest in beacon technologies to provide a silent alarm based on GPS coordinates both on and off campus,” Beckmann said. “It also will enable network subscribers to initiate and receive targeted security alerts when using a software program that features wireless Gimbal Beacon transmitters.”
While there are many apps on the market that offer one-way communication, Beckmann said IQ Onsite’s new communications infrastructure provides a “multi-tier communication platform.”
“Campus security is a multi-billion dollar industry,” he said. “IQ Onsite is poised to be an early leader in smart phone security systems by enabling students and faculty to create communities of active by-standers that work together with security.”
IQ Onsite is a new business client of the University of Central Florida Business Incubation Program located on the site of the Daytona Beach International Airport.
