Keller, TX – Today, Keller ISD announced its partnership with Veoci to build a Virtual EOC (Emergency Operations Center). This cloud-based platform brings plans, communications, and dashboards to a single location for emergency events in order to manage an effective response.

"We can't imagine managing this crisis without it," said Chris McLaughlin, Keller ISD Emergency Management Coordinator. “Veoci has provided immediate help to Keller ISD in our COVID-19 response and recovery, allowing us to safely coordinate critical activities across more than 42 campuses in an effective and efficient manner. We’re able to manage data, resources, and health alerting in real-time, and we know we are just getting started with its capabilities."

Keller ISD started exploring the Veoci platform, just prior to the COVID-19 disaster declaration, but was already moving toward acquiring the product this summer.

“While this is a tool that has immediately proven to be useful for the pandemic, it will continue to serve as our virtual emergency operations center for any future events,” McLaughlin said. “We will be integrating district-level and campus-level emergency operations plans into the system for rapid plan and task activation, real-time communication and coordination, and effective logging for our improvement planning.”

Veoci Senior Account Executive Mark Demski, CEM, said Keller ISD is one of the first school districts in Texas to go live with the tool, and he’s confident in what the tool has to offer for the K-12 environment year round.

“We are excited that our technology is able to meet the needs of our clients and provide situational awareness when time is of the essence,” Demski said. “The time this solution saves may make the difference between an unsuccessful and successful outcome.”
