In the 21st century, America has experienced more than 100 school shootings, all tragic and traumatic for those who were there, who responded to the scene, and for those who’ve watched them unfold. As a nation, we’ve asked ourselves what we can do not only to prevent such tragic unravellings but how to respond to them in the moment. It was in the aftermath of several of these school shootings, that BluePoint Alert Solutions was born. Their solution: immediate, communicative, efficient, and affordable solutions to alert all pertinent parties of a potential or unfolding crisis. Their innovative technology would be integral to saving lives in these nerve-racking moments.
BluePoint gave Prominent the opportunity to work with them to problem solve and help coordinate what was to become a world changing effort to increase the safety measures within public spaces. Specifically, Prominent’s task at hand was to help organize both BluePoint’s and their vendors’ teams, and to turn their well-thought-out ideas into actionable solutions.
What Prominent Needed To Do
Establish an embedded security system by integrating various pieces of hardware and software .
Create a communication protocol and infrastructure to permit various components to talk to a centralized control panel
Provide neutral insight and guidance to participating vendors to help bring the solution together
Develop a custom interface for the system to allow casual users to control and maintain the system
Ensure quality for the system and the process to move it into mass production
Prominent worked closely with BluePoint and their various hardware and software vendors to curate an actionable plan to allow for smooth communication between all parties which then allowed for the technology to be the front and center of the project. Essentially, Prominent paved the way for connection between each piece of technology.
The Technical Deliverables

Prominent and all those involved are honored to have played an active role in the solution.
