Keeping children’s learning environment safe from danger is always a top priority for any parent or teacher. Whether it is efficiently informing students about a fire, deterring theft with school surveillance cameras, or keeping an eye out for any possible criminals – Innova cares and wants to help. Education is highly valued to Innova and is something we take very seriously.
CASE STUDY: MCMINNVILLE SCHOOL DISTRICT
First and foremost, it was important to McMinnville School District to have a vendor that would be responsive to their needs and return phone calls, emails and be a partner in finding solutions. There aren’t many places where the stakes are higher for a security company than a school district, so Innova was happy to answer the call.
MSD needed a top-end enterprise-level technology solution to Video and Access Control that met the ever-changing needs of security in education, but at the same time be easy to use and not lock them into a proprietary system that married them to a single vendor.
INNOVA assigned a dedicated account manager to MSD to ensure they had a single point of contact who would be responsive and always in tune with their needs.
We then partnered with Avigilon (www.avigilon.com) to help create a District Standard for MSD, documenting the equipment, best practices and methods to ensure they could bid with multiple vendors and feel confident that they would be able to compare apples to apples.
INNOVA consulted MSD on a regular basis to ensure they understood the features of their new modern security technology and how it integrated with their other critical systems so they could make the best decisions about their peripheral equipment purchases.
The school district is now more secure and adept at utilizing modern security technology, and we’ve ensured they’re more flexible to make whatever choices are right for them moving forward.
