Saving Lives

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: DIR-S has allowed our local schools to connect law enforcement and schools in crisis situations. Not only law enforcement is connected, but the people in crisis are connected to the outside. We all use technology, and this is an amazing resource to use.

Vorteile:

We’ve been testing the software in our local school. It’s quick, it’s functional and it’s going to save lives.

Nachteile:

There’s nothing to put here really, I want it to be more accessible to all schools and all students. This connects our law enforcement, schools, and is a way to change school safety and security.

Coordinated response

Kommentare: Overall working with them has been a great experience!

Vorteile:

I love the ability this provides for a coordinated response between our schools, district, emergency response teams, and police! We meet regularly with the DIR-S team to discuss updates and they are very responsive to making changes that benefit us.

Nachteile:

With any software there are always some bugs. It would be great if it interfaced with our employee database so we didn't have to manually change employees in each school every year.

DIR-S in the public school

3,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

You can see where everyone is and can communicate via phone/computer if there is an emergency.

Nachteile:

We have done emergency drills/procedures for many many years without this software, and it has been efficient. Teachers are very aware of where their students are and what to do in an emergency. This just seems to be a hassle to try and do everything we are supposed to do with this system on top of simply taking care of the children we are in charge of during an emergency. As a teacher, I do not carry my phone with me, nor do I have it on during the teaching day, simply because it is a distraction. Because I have moved schools frequently, I continually have to be updated in the system, and I don't know how to do that. We had a school fire drill today, and, though I thought I had been updated in the system, when I tried to log into it on my phone, I didn't know the passcode to get in. It just hasn't been a very useful tool for me as a whole, and does not seem that beneficial.

Thank you Jennifer for the review. We value your opinion and want to do everything we can to make DIR-S a better tool. Please send us an email and we can ensure your account is updated. The PIN is something the user sets, however we can show you how to create new one. Thanks again and we hope we can add value to an emergency, the last thing we want to do is add the commotion.

DIR-S In Schools

4,0 vor 3 Monaten

Kommentare: I think this has a lot of potential, and it works great when it works. BUT there always seems to be the one that missed the alert.

Vorteile:

It seems like a great idea. The interactive maps and the way that you can chat with others. It all seems like a really good idea.

Nachteile:

Each time we do a drill, there is always the teacher that did not get the update. Whether their volume was turned down, or the app was not updated, or it just did not send. That seems to be a huge concern with dealing with emergency apps.

Tresit brings the best peace of mind for a parent, knowing kids are safe at school is bar none.

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: I was able to see what was going on around school, to see that classrooms were safe and students were not in harms way.

Vorteile:

I love being able to see the school, where is safe and where is yet to be marked safe. I also love that a teacher has the ability to control an alert if something is going on in the classroom. There is no better way to get notice of what is going on to police in hostile situations. I love that you could use this in schools, banks, offices, event venues, or wherever. This is state of the art, genius, and going to save lives.

Nachteile:

I think a 3D model of the school would be nice someday, a 2D version allows the basic essentials. one day I would love for some sort of technology that allows law enforcement, fire fighters, or whoever it may be in need to see levels of the school, office, bank, etc. and prevent difficult situations.

Very useful and easy to use

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Vorteile:

I love how easy it is to train people how to use the software. It is super easy to send an alert and the reason to send an alert are endless! It makes me feel safer at work. It's easy for teachers to learn how to use it. When we have questions about it the staff from DIR-S are very helpful and good to work with!!

Nachteile:

The only problem I've run into is sometimes the maps don't work properly on the mobile app. Also, on the mobile app, it's hard to notice the alerts. We only get alerted when we look at our phone. I wish it would continue to buzz so we notice the alert.

Antwort von Tresit Group

Thank you for the great feedback. Android OS will continue to alert mobile devices. iOS only sends out push notification, Apple does not let us override their OS. We are always learning and truly appreciate your comments.

Kommentare: For drills, etc. it has been great.

Vorteile:

It's straightforward and easy to use on multiple devices, i.e. desktops, laptops, tablets, and other handheld devices.

Nachteile:

About the only hangup we had with it was that we have multiple campuses and some people that travel between campuses. In the early stages we were having people from one school trigger the alarm at the other school and some people whose devices were set up on both campuses get triggered while they were on the other campus.

We have been looking for something like this for years to enhance the response and communication.

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: I love what it enhances in an emergency response between those in a crisis and those responding to help.

Vorteile:

It is easy to use for everyone, both civilians and first responders. It can be used for everyday occurrences in our schools and not just for the active gunmen situation. In a serious emergency when 911 is overwhelmed and officers are responding from different agencies, it allows a quicker route to pertinent information. Basically is saves time!

Kommentare: Having this software in our school lets parents be at peace while their kids are in school.

Vorteile:

This software allows our school to connect to law enforcements even far better and faster than we used to

Nachteile:

The pricing can be steep for small schools but I think it is worth all the money. They do offer a free trial.

I haven't had a lot of experience, but I love the idea of being able to communicate.

3,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: I have been in an emergency situation before at my last school and we were put on a lock down. We had no way of communicating and it was terrifying. I love the thought of being notified of what is happening and quick conversations that keep everyone safe.

Vorteile:

I really like how you can talk to the whole school and contact the police with such ease. It's helpful to be in the know so I can react quickly and keep my students as safe as possible. This app has some serious potential.

Nachteile:

With such ease of communication it is very easy to send an alert by mistake. We just had someone accidentally send an alert which sent the whole school in a bit of a panic. Luckily, we have had some good drills so reactions were appropriate. I also did not end up getting notified on my phone and I don't think we have had enough training on the communication part.

This has allowed us to simplify the emergency response routine and procedure.

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

I like that it connects our school to the both district office and emergency response agencies which will improve the communication and direct efforts to the right location. It also provides a way for communication to continue during the emergency through the chat feature which will help everyone involved to remain focused and calm.

Nachteile:

We have had a little trouble when a substitute is present in a classroom and not logged in to a computer. Additionally, you cannot enter the program to "practice" without setting off an alert.

This system seems much better than how our school used to function during emergencies or drills.

Vorteile:

I love that it has a chat feature so if we are in an emergency we can get information quickly and everyone can say what they need to.

Nachteile:

I do not like that if someone is looking at the emergency buttons it pulls it up automatically on my computer. With it being such a new feature some teachers have looked at what the options were and it alerted me during class even though there wasn't an emergency.

Kommentare: It's definitely made for the here and now. I feel like the old way of alerting throughout the school put a lot of people in danger, this one helps to avoid that.

Vorteile:

I really like that it will send notifications to my phone. This way no matter where I am, I will always be aware of any alerts/dangers.

Sometimes it seems when an alert goes out it takes a long time to show up on my phone and on my computer.

Kommentare: DIR-S creates a safe place where teachers, administrators, and safety officials can turn to. Instead of a scramble to get all the info needed in a crisis, all of the pertinent info is in everyones hands.

Vorteile:

The software is easy to understand and integrate in to any school system. Being able to have a dedicated place to look in an emergency gets rid of a lot of the stress. The whole emergency process is streamlined.

Nachteile:

If you aren't careful you can send the whole school into panic mode, don't mess around in the app
