TAMPA, FL & ARLINGTON, VA – October 6, 2020 – Vector Solutions, the leading provider of software solutions for learning, operational readiness, workforce management, and risk reduction, has acquired LiveSafe, a leading mobile risk intelligence solution for safety and security incident prevention, response, and communication.
