“We’re excited that we found a technology marketing partner that is able to help us hit the ground running with creating content and campaigns to help us get the word out to school districts across the country that we have this great solution that creates safer schools for our children,” said Daniel J. Lee, CEO and founder of Kokomo24/7. “The response to our story about how this product can predict unsafe student incidents and create intervention has been great, and we’re just getting started. I’m glad we found Inbound Advocates to help with telling the story.”

For ISVs that aren’t ready to hire a team of marketers, Inbound Advocates’ Marketing-as-a-Service approach allows them to procure a team of technology marketing SMEs at a fraction of the cost of hiring, training and retaining the full-time equivalencies.

“This intelligence engine we built our technology on comes from a few years of building and tuning by developers all over the world,” added Lee. “Student safety is important to me and my family and to cities all over the country. This is not just software. We are creating a better way to deal with violence in the schools where our children spend most of their young lives.”

Kokomo24/7’s product line consists of three integrated school safety products – an internal Incident Management System, an Anonymous Incident Reporting tool, coupled with an Emergency Operations Center.

The Incident Management System learns from past student safety incidents and analyzes data to predict outcomes and provide intervention before incidents happen. IMS provides a proactive approach for schools and safety departments to prevent, respond to, and recover from incidents. With Anonymous Reporting, students, parents, faculty and communities can submit safety concerns from the mobile app or website portal powered by an A.I.-based Triage Scoring System™ to help identify at-risk individuals and incidents. Kokomo24/7 EOC provides school operations and safety officials with instant situational awareness so emergencies are handled with informed decisions.
