Pearson K-12 Technology Group and Raptor Technologies Announce Partnership to Provide Best-in-Class Solutions for School Visitor Management Systems Through Integrated Software Solutions

RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. - Oct. 15, 2013 – Raptor Technologies, the nation’s leading visitor management provider for K-12 schools, and Pearson, provider of industry-leading student information systems, PowerSchool and PowerSchool SMS, announced today that Raptor has joined Pearson’s Independent Software Vendor (ISV) program as a commitment to provide new capabilities and efficiencies in the K-12 education sector.

Raptor Technologies is the nation’s leading visitor management system for K-12 schools and protects over 9,500 campuses nationwide. The Raptor system allows schools to screen all visitors to campus against the registered sex offender databases of all 50 states and issue instant sex offender as well as custody alerts. Raptor’s web-based software allows schools to electronically log all individuals entering the campus front office and print high-quality temporary badges for visitors, volunteers, and student tardies.

“At Pearson, we’re pleased to welcome Raptor to our growing ISV Partner program,” said Oliver Wreford, Director of Business Development. “Raptor’s web-based software suite for the front office is a strong complement to our web-based student information system software and will allow the school administrators we serve to more effectively manage and monitor visitors on their school campuses.”

“Raptor pioneered the technology that screens visitors to campus against sex offender databases and is now used by more K-12 schools than any other visitor management system in the United States. In the past 10 years, we have flagged over 11,000 registered sex offenders attempting to enter our clients’ schools and we have issued over 120,000 custom alerts, most of which have involved alerts regarding custody issues at our clients’ campuses.” said Jim Vesterman, Chairman & CEO of Raptor. “Integration with leading student information systems such as PowerSchool is important for both efficiency and safety. Our partnership with Pearson demonstrates Raptor’s continued commitment to use technology to help keep our children’s campuses safe and secure. Now, Pearson customers will be able to take advantage of the integration between our two software systems. We are excited to work with Pearson to grow and develop our partnership going forward.”
