Raptor Technologies: How Growing Market Share Leads to Safer Schools
A recent survey from the National Center for Education Statistics reports that two-thirds of American public schools now control visitor access to their school grounds. This includes getting equipment, hiring staff and implementing crisis plans. So, who designs these systems? We will find out today, with David Rogers from Raptor Technologies.
Raptor Technologies is the U.S. leader in school security software. Once a family-owned business, Raptor now works with 37, 000 schools across the country. That’s thanks in part to David Rogers, their chief marketing officer. After 20 years in high-tech marketing, David has touched on everything from software development to fintech. In this episode, he shares how technology can make schools safer, and why this work needs to happen now.
With a passion that is nothing short of inspiring, David draws lessons from Raptor’s success: from its humble beginnings in Houston, Texas, to its recent venture in global markets. He also tells us how safety management technology can help during an emergency; points out the importance of risk prevention; and reveals how school districts and families can get involved too. Because, at the end of the day, school safety is about creating a supportive network around our communities.
So join Patrick and David today, and follow in Raptor’s steps to protect every school, every child, every day.
