GeoComm and ELi Technology Announce Partnership aimed at Enhancing School Safety with new “ATLS Location Service”

St. Cloud, MN & Halifax, NS, Canada: GeoComm, creator, and deliverer of locally authoritative indoor and outdoor GIS for mission-critical applications, and ELi Technology Inc. (ELi), provider of the “verified dispatchable location methodology”, known as Emergency Mobile Location (EML), are excited to announce a partnership offering a location service, known as ATLS, driven to enhance school safety. 

ATLS is an innovative, easily integrated location and mapping service, combining ELi Technology’s patented EML with GeoComm’s technology enabling accurate indoor location mapping via Wi-Fi access points. 

It provides actionable, accurate, and precise indoor location intelligence, clearly illustrated on an indoor floorplan, to support more productive and safe environments, and to ensure responders, security and administrators have actionable information when dealing with any situation, from staff check-in, minor medical emergencies, to threat, lockdown, and evacuation scenarios. 

ATLS is easily incorporated into existing school safety applications, providing definitive indoor dispatchable location, accurate and precise to the room number and floor level of an incident. ATLS supports safer learning and working environments, provides Responders with actionable information during emergencies, exceeds compliance with Kari’s Law, the Ray Baum’s Act, and Alyssa’s Law, and respects privacy and security. 

ATLS leverages the existing wireless network inside schools to enable cutting-edge location intelligence and situational awareness for school safety stakeholders. Once an emergency call or silent notification is activated within a school or campus, the accurately mapped location of the incident is shared with designated school personnel and external law enforcement, whether onsite or close by.  

“GeoComm is dedicated to empowering schools across the country with holistic, interoperable solutions for student safety focused on streamlining and reducing response times to emergencies inside buildings. We are excited to partner with ELi Technology to revolutionize the future of school safety,” said Jeff Liebl, GeoComm President and CEO. “ATLS delivers actionable insights, enhances awareness, and seamlessly integrates with existing K-12 infrastructure. It is sustainable, easy to implement, and ensures interoperability, all while being easily maintained.”

“Location technologies currently leveraged by safety apps and platforms typically use crowd-sourced location data, GPS coordinates, cell towers, or Bluetooth beacons. These solutions can provide unreliable, inaccurate, imprecise indoor locations, or require pervasive deployment, maintenance, and higher costs. ATLS changes all of that,” says ELi CEO Peter Woodford. “This incredible partnership allows ATLS to boost the functionality of any safety app or platform feature that leverages location data, making them work smarter and more efficiently. And most importantly, it will also save lives.”
