Group Management Software System: Is so much more than a simple reminder

A Group Management Software System will be able to help with the below scenario:

You are watching CNN and suddenly you see a terrorist attack in Paris, France.

You think, that’s awful, but it does not directly affect my campus, my organization.

Then you realize you have a group of people in Paris on a trip.

Now what?

Why do traditional LMSs and group communication software fall short?

The typical Learning Management System (LMS) was designed over 15-20 years ago, the functionality is just OK, but many of the communication features don’t really hack it and often times they lack communications that go beyond the classroom.

Campus communication systems fall into 3 categories:

1The typical Learning Management System (LMS) was designed over 15-20 years ago, the functionality is just OK, but many of the communication features along with group functions don’t really hack it and often times lack communications that go beyond the classroom.

2Legacy emergency broadcast solutions fall short in 2 ways:

  • Many lack basic features demanded by students and leaders today.
  • Many rely on legacy telephony equipment that limits communication especially internationally.

3Simple point solution apps that lack robust features, lack strong school-wide/campus-wide controls (seem more like toys than systems) and do not support international communications.

What should a Group Management Software System provide?

  • Strong school-based authentication.
  • Strong school-based encryption and privacy controls.
  • Strong school oversight tools.
  • Group Marketplace, so that many can participate
  • Group Message boards
  • Group File Sharing
  • Group Calendar Sharing
  • Picture Sharing
  • Roster and contact information.
  • Check-in/Check-out to Custody exchange
  • Strong campus safety group management
  • Group locations services
  • Group Emergency Broadcast to email, text, app, device services, CAP, Facebook and Twitter
  • Strong Group access controls that limit who can see a group, participate, role-based groups, private groups, exclude users, and other group  campus safety group management functions.
  • Integration into managing critical events.
  • Volunteer management
  • Integration into your student information system and directory service.

Why doesn’t my organization have a modern Group Management Software System?

  • Some schools rely on public social networking tools rather than school-based private tools. This is very risky for participants, leaders and schools, based upon lack of privacy, authentication, controls and school monitoring.
  • Some schools rely on text and email distribution lists, this provides no records, no oversight, no controls and limited features.
  • Some schools try and use their learning campus safety group management system, whose features often fall short.
  • Some schools use point solutions like Remind Software, which is not a school-wide solution and lacks many school-wide controls, putting the participants, teachers, leaders and the school’s reputation at risk.

What is holding you back from a Group Management Software System?

  • You don’t have the system.
  • Implementing Campus safety group management is quick and easy.
  • The IDentifyEd system cost is easily justified based upon all the other items it replaces.
  • Every minute you wait you create more risk, liability and negligence.
  • You can start saving lives and communicating to everyone that your campus is safe and secure, today with the Campus Safety Group Management IDentifyED App!

Group Management, Project Management and Membership Management: What is the difference?

We provide Group Management that includes:

  • Shared Message Boards
  • Shared Files
  • Shared Calendars
  • Shared Pictures
  • Group Messaging
  • Group Marketplace

Project management software

Often includes some of these facets but is normally around a project that is a fixed set of time and somewhat dynamic in it’s make up. You could use our software for this, but many project management software solutions are very focused on milestones and calendars. Monday is an example of this type of software:

Membership Software

Membership software may have some of the same qualities of our group management feature but if more focused on other items like membership applications, dues and fees. We can do those things, but we do so much more for an organization. Here is an example of some membership software solutions: List of Membership Software Companies
