Tresit Group started as a consulting business where Cole Smith, and his co-founders sought merely to help schools develop and implement a more effective emergency protocols. They then developed the DIR-S (duress) software, which is constantly being updated and improved. For instance, we recently made the change from our in-house mapping system to a Google Maps integration. This will open up a huge amount of possibilities for the program being used in a wide variety of locations. Up until now DIR-S has mainly been used in schools and district facilities, but people need to be kept safe everywhere they go. The goal of Tresit Group evolved into offering effective safety software that can easily adapt to meet the needs of any facility that desires to improve its security.
As the DIR-S program becomes more and more adaptable for use in a wider range of places, we want to help people see different ways that they can get the program set up for their organization.
DIR-S software drastically decreases response time which increases reaction time, what normally takes a school 30 minutes with traditional emergency procedures is cut down to a matter of seconds. If an active shooter is on school property, the building is effectively locked down and the students are secured literally in seconds. Knowing this, it is immediately obvious that DIR-S is a good thing for any school. So what might hold them back from implementing Tresit Group’s safety software? The main problem with implementing any kind of program is having sufficient funds for financing a quality security system.
Hope does not need to be lost if the usual routes you might take to get funding do not have the necessary resources to make it happen. The primary goal of Tresit Group is to provide quality security programs for every school and organization who desires it.
When thinking of expenses we might run into on a daily basis, the price of the DIR-S system is affordable. Our approach is to make sure we can offer a great solution at a reasonable price, it becomes more than manageable, even in very small schools.
One Northern Utah school knew that they wanted the program, but simply did not have the resources necessary in their budget. This school reached out to local businesses in the community to explain what the program was, and how much they needed to implement it, and in short order, they had plenty of funds donated to get the program for the school.
If we consider what places other than schools might be able to do, there are plenty of options.
During the summer time, most counties in Utah have county fairs, and other celebrations. Usually local businesses have the chance to set up a booth or a food trailer to sell food or other goods.
Community fundraisers in newspapers are another viable option.
Businesses could also appeal to their employees to find a company-wide agreement as to how they might raise sufficient funds.
Breaking up the cost helps enormously and it isn’t surprising how willing people are to donate funds for improving security in a community. Safety is a high priority that many believe you can’t put a price tag on.
The Tresit Group goal is to modernize general security protocols and procedures. We have worked hard to develop a good system that can be adapted to a wide range of facilities. It is important to us that our product is priced competitively so that our users can afford it, and we can continue improving our software.
It is very exciting for us to help people and organizations to bring their security procedures into the 21st century. It is important for today’s schools and workplaces to have all of the necessary programs and systems to keep their employees and students safe.
