Product wins in the Anonymous Reporting Tool category
Vector Solutions, the leading provider of training and software solutions to help schools make their operations and communities safer, smarter and better, was awarded Platinum in Campus Technology’s New Product Awards for its Vector LiveSafe platform. Vector LiveSafe earned the award – the highest available – in the Anonymous Reporting Tool category.
Vector LiveSafe is an advanced tip reporting and safety communication tool that allows students or employees to quickly report safety concerns directly through a smartphone app. It can help higher education institutions address issues, from campus violence to misconduct within student organizations such as hazing or sexual assault. One of the key features of Vector LiveSafe is its anonymous reporting feature. Users can quickly submit tips (text, photo, or video) anonymously, which are then routed to the designated campus officials. In one situation, a college used the anonymous reporting feature to gather tips about allegations of hazing and alcohol abuse. The information helped the college uncover several incidents which it then investigated and addressed.
“Students are sometimes more comfortable reporting incidents or concerns anonymously, so by adding this feature to our Vector LiveSafe platform, we provided another avenue for schools and universities to gather needed information,” said Vector Solutions CEO Marc Scheipe. “Anonymous reporting tools help institutions be proactive about identifying issues that might otherwise go unreported. We’re honored to have the Vector LiveSafe platform recognized by Campus Technology.”
Campus Technology is one of higher education’s top information sources, serving as a complete resource for academic and administrative IT leaders and establishing a collaborative environment that promotes professional networking and global pedagogy. The Campus Technology New Product Awards honor the outstanding product development achievements of manufacturers and suppliers whose products or services are considered to be particularly noteworthy in the transformation of education technology.
“Congratulations to the winners of this year’s New Products Awards — 2021 has been defined by innovation and transformation in higher education, and we’re pleased to recognize the impact that these technologies have had in moving colleges and universities forward and supporting student success,” said Rhea Kelly, editor-in-chief of Campus Technology.
