STOPware PassagePoint EDU Helps Secure Schools

San Jose, CA (January 19, 2007) - Students, teachers and administrators will be safer at school with the introduction of PassagePoint EDU from STOPware, the industry's leading publisher of visitor management and badging software. PassagePoint EDU is designed specifically to address visitor management in schools and school districts.

"There has been a growing need in the K-12 market for accurate identification, badging and tracking of visitors, volunteers and others on the premises," said Paul Terschuren, VP Sales and Marketing, STOPware. "PassagePoint EDU makes this information readily available to staff members and helps control access to school grounds." With PassagePoint EDU, school staff can badge visitors and volunteers to indicate that a visit is approved. Visitors and groups can be pre-registered, with badges pre-printed for convenience. Staff can see who is on campus, what areas they are authorized to visit and who is authorized to pick up students. They can also import watch lists, including sexual predator information, with instant notification. PassagePoint EDU works seamlessly with TEMPbadge's expiring school badges and includes the ability to scan many forms of ID for easy, accurate data entry. Screens can be custom designed for each type of staff user.

"Now improving safety in our schools doesn't require a big investment in time or personnel," said Terschuren. "PassagePoint EDU offers unprecedented flexibility, convenience and accuracy."

PassagePoint EDU is also available in four languages; English, French, German and Spanish.
