Revamp for Us – Success for You!

By Emily Davis and Ally Jones

It is always our goal to help you get the most from your Emergency Preparedness and Threat Assessment tools as possible. This is why we recently made some organizational changes and welcomed new members to our Customer Success team. With this, we are now able to bring our customers more specialized care as each team member is better able to focus on specific aspects of the customer’s success journey. We are thrilled to have such a strong team with which we can leverage their individual strengths to improve our processes and better help our customers along the way.

Our newest member of the team, who joins us from the Ohio Department of Public Safety, is specializing in the Threat Assessment product.  Having worked in many different capacities in the school safety and security world, including receiving and responding to threats reported through the state tip line, Eric is focusing on helping schools operationalize the Threat Assessment processes with our new software.  He is also our customer success analyst, providing a data-forward approach to the support we offer our customers.  We are very excited to have him onboard!

Additionally, as we work to effectively build our Threat Assessment operational processes, the whole team spent time in D.C. in early August for in-depth training with Dr. Marisa Randazzo and SIGMA Threat Management Associates.

With our new organization in tow, our customer success team looks forward to continuing to serving you, and would like to leave you with this:
