Raptor Technologies Offers Complimentary Access to Software that Helps Expedite Meal Cost Reimbursements for Schools
HOUSTON, April 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Raptor Technologies, the nation’s leading provider of integrated school safety technologies for K-12 schools, is offering complimentary access to its Emergency Management software to schools nationwide now through the end of the school year to expedite and electronically log meal, device and homework distribution to students during COVID-19 school closures. Schools and districts can submit requests now to receive the Raptor software at no charge by emailing [email protected].
Originally created to help districts prepare for, respond to and recover from an emergency (e.g., drill management, active incident management and parent-student reunification), the Raptor Emergency Management system is now being used by schools to efficiently manage and track meal, device and homework distribution during extended school closures. This technology works seamlessly with the “I Love U Guys” Foundation’s recently launched Standard Distribution Method: a COVID-19 program providing guidance on safe and orderly distribution of food and learning materials.
Raptor Reunification® – part of the integrated Emergency Management system – was originally designed to manage the reunification process and verify that a student was reunified with an approved guardian after an incident. In this case, the student is being “reunified” with a meal, device or homework, instead of with a guardian. This software syncs with school information systems and allows for contact-less retrieval and a full record of resource distribution.
“We know district administrators are working tirelessly to support their communities right now and Raptor Technologies software can be tremendously helpful as they manage and track resource distribution during COVID-19 school closures. As a committed ally to those responsible for protecting the well-being of others, Raptor is here to support school and district leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic,” stated Eileen Shihadeh, Raptor Technologies chief marketing officer. “Using the software is proven to be up to four times faster than paper-and-pencil methods, so we’re confident this will help schools save valuable time and provide full accountability and digital records of these resource distributions.”
Set up, training and customer support is included at no charge as well. Setup is quick and can be done online or via phone.
