What do you like best?

The program is easy to use, simple to implement, and fun to organize. Although we are in our first few months of using the program, I can say nothing but positives about the training, the program, and the camp navigate program. This program is how crisis management should operate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

So far, so good!! We have had no problems with the start up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The platform makes something stressful for staff and students a bit easier! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The lessons I have learned since NaviGate Prepared has come into our school system is what I like best. Before NaviGate Prepared was introduced I have no real sense of what to do in an emergency. I had no way to contact anyone if I was outside of my classroom or in the cafeteria. Not only that but I was only taught to wait for instructions for my next in an emergency. It is so wonderful to know that in a dire emergency the best judgment is my own. To be informed on how to prepare for an emergency or crisis situation and to know that emergency responders will come at a moments notice and know how to find you is great, Not only that but, to have a device that can communicate to all that you're ok and you have all your students at your fingertips is priceless. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I can not think of anything wrong with the program as of yet. The only concern I have is for the knowledge of the school maps to go from school to responder. Someone can hack emails and get that information possibly. Having the blueprints of so many schools in one location and possibly on a hackable source is my only concern. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use NaviGate Prepared for peace of mind. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In a school setting the only busy we have is the welfare of our students. NaviGate Prepared has helped to make our student population safer and accounted for. The benefit I have realized the most is to take charge of a given dangerous situation and come out on top. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The ability for teachers to instantly check in their students from anywhere inside and outside of the building is awesome. No more running around with clipboards wondering if everyone has checked in. Syncing your student information with the app will provide up to date information for everyone. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Since the app/website contains all of the information, which is nice, it is sometimes daunting for new users to locate certain information and get used to the terminology of the NaviGate system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The program allows or a streamlined approach to safety and communication. Drills and scenarios are done more efficiently and staff feel better prepared. All of the information related to safety and security or found in one place. No more searching through old binders, stacks of papers, or emails looking for the most current information.

What do you like best?

The Plan Wizard is very simple to use, and being based on FEMA's template makes it very thorough. Helped me to consider steps and processes I never thought of. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We have to use a 3rd party interface so that the student/staff information uploads and syncs to Navigate. This proved to be cumbersome to successfully set up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For the first time, my school has a very thorough emergency plan that goes far beyond evacuation. We extensively use the training scenarios. We are still learning the use of the student accountability section of the Respond feature. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that there is an app on my phone that I can use in the case of an emergency at school. I typically have my phone on my person and like that I can quickly access my rosters as well as the entire school to account for children. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would like to have more practice with it first. I would like there to be a quick guide or simulation that I could do on my own to learn the app better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take time to explore it and practice it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love the maps. I love how you can add symbols and how they can be customized. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The training is confusing...only because I am probably doing three things at once. You need to stay focused while doing the training. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving our issue of maps and exits is a huge relief. Getting our emergency responders involved will be a huge step, but once they see it, they will appreciate seeing that we are prepared for emergencies! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

since implementing this effective tool in our school district, the set up wizards, help tools, customer service and more have skyrocketed in efficiency and creativity. Just when you think you might be stuck, the team at Navigate Prepared are there to make suggestions and come prepared for every question and scenario. This is a team that have not only done their homework but, know how to implement a product to its max and beyond! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Its really hard to find something to dislike about these guys! I think my biggest issue comes more from implementing with persons on the end user and is a separate issue to anything Navigate Prepared are involved in. That is, its all my end and not them. Rarely do you find a business you love so much! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Give them a call direct. The Team will be more than happy to walk you through the products, cost and other factors and you wont be disappointed! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Communications with First Responders have become far more effective in your community than they were before. Having Emergency Operations Plans in place, give peace of mind should something go wrong. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

NaviGate walks you through the process of dotting your "I"s and crossing your "t"s. You plan, schedule, drill, document, and report right in the software. You create a FEMA style school safety plan that meets all the requirements. You identify gaps in your plan and can work with local emergency services through collaboration to close them.

What do you like best?

I like the interface and what I can do with the data. I can manage all of my school safety information in one program and it auto loads all of my roster. The customer support is what brings it home! They host webinars, in-person conferences and is quick to call me personally to work on questions and deployment. They know me personally! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

About the only thing I worry about is the need for being connected to data to get the safety plans and flipcharts. If there is a way to download it locally to a device that might be good and then it syncs when connected. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love the ability for the teachers to easily use the program and from the Admin side, it is a very friendly UI to run. Also, this company provides a bunch of opportunity for training as needed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In terms of this software, there isn't too much to dislike. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

NaviGate Prepared is a very useful system when it comes to thinking about safety and security within your school district or business. Their online system and easy to use and they have a wonderful staff that provides any kind of training that may be needed. This program gives access to administrators to see where issues may lie within the building but is smart enough to realize that an emergency can happen at any time and allows for staff to trigger an alarm as needed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have to have a system like this set up for within the school districts. It is the law. The benefits I have realized is it allows for a quick head count of students and easily alerts the administrator if there is an issue. Plus, we have all of our safety information located in one central place through NaviGate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
