Many college students protected by Rave Mobile Safety's Rave Alert platform

Rave Mobile Safety (Rave), the trusted provider of emergency and public safety solutions that help save lives, has announced that its Rave Alert platform covers nearly half of all higher education student populations across the United States, including five of the eight Ivy League and 10 of the 14 Big Ten schools, the company said.

A mass notification system that enables universities and colleges to communicate with the entire campus population–not just the ones who have downloaded an app–the Rave Alert suite gets the right message to the right user from any Internet-connected device in a matter of seconds.

While the Clery Act has required schools to have a system in place for notifications, standalone safety apps fail to deliver the full functionality schools need to truly serve the school´s population.

To meet those needs, Rave currently sends over a billion messages per year across the country, including for the University of Notre Dame, the University of Illinois at Chicago, Keene State College and Cerritos College.

Rave´s platform for higher education safety, which includes Rave Alert and Rave Guardian, streamlines critical communications and acts as a single launch point for email, text message, voice, desktop alerts, sirens, RSS feeds, access control and digital signage. It can also initiate two-way communication and location sharing with any affected populations, as well as enable anonymous tips and virtual escorting through Rave Guardian.

Rave Mobile Safety provides innovative emergency and public safety technology to help save lives. The Rave platform integrates data and communication tools to help those in charge of keeping others safe prepare better, respond faster and communicate more effectively in emergency situations. Founded in 2004, Rave is headquartered in Framingham, Mass. and backed by growth equity firm TCV. For more information, visit
