With more students feeling drawn to explore different cultures and with more schools offering exciting possibilities for study abroad, university and college administrators now have an increased need for a modern and efficient way to ensure the safety of their student, faculty and staff travelers.
Yale University’s Travel Registry, a web-based tool that the Yale community uses to record travel plans in order to respond quickly in case of emergency, found a way to simplify this process with Veoci. Yale University has been a long-time customer of Veoci for areas such as emergency management and facilities management. Now, Yale Travel Registry utilizes Veoci to maintain communication with students, faculty and staff abroad, determine their location, and manage potential evacuations and other emergency procedures quickly and easily from countries away. Yale University can now flag leadership students in specific areas to receive critical information and send safety check-ins/alerts/warnings for all students or students in specific geofenced areas to respond. All reports and documentation are stored and organized on custom drag-and-drop forms and high-level dashboards for quick and easy information access.
