Infographic: Uses of InformaCast in Higher Education

Keeping students, staff, and on-campus visitors safe is a top priority for administrators at colleges and universities. It's also a difficult thing to do, since variables such as open campuses, complex facilities, and individualized schedules present obstacles to effective communication.

Addressing Plant Safety Concerns with InformaCast

Have you ever been somewhere -- say a store, restaurant, or friend's house -- and heard a car alarm go off? How did people respond? Likely, they didn't.

Alarms are only effective when they trigger action , and that's only possible if someone is paying attention to them . So how does this apply to your manufacturing plant? 

Well, think about all of the potential dangers in your plant: chemical spills, employee injuries, unsafe levels of contaminants, and more. There are systems available to monitor for these scenarios, but unless you're in the area and hear when a system detects a concern, it's about as effective as a car alarm.

InformaCast offers a solution. It integrates with monitoring systems like air quality sensors and temperature gauges. When one of those systems detects a threat, InformaCast automatically sends a notification directly to you and your safety team so you know about it and can take action no matter where you happen to be at the time.
