Varsity Maps, a New York Tech Startup, is proud to announce their mobile app “Varsity Maps.” At the moment, most schools in the US have no means of ensuring adequate security and easy navigation. This has led to insecurity and confusion, especially for new students and staff members. Varsity Maps makes it easier to navigate the campus by helping the user search for buildings, locations, events, room numbers, and equipment. It also helps to improve communication between students and staff and comes with an alarm feature to alert campus security of an emergency. Varsity maps is set for pre-launch, spring 2018.

“Varsity Maps is the solution to the many of the security and communication challenges we currently have on campuses and other schools. Now, anyone can search for a location on campus and get quick and easy direction. No more wandering about looking for an event on campus, no more asking scores of people for direction and yet you can’t get to your destination. Our app is efficient, interactive, and provides complete security for campus staff and students. Now, education can be more fun,” said Mike Morris – Director of Business development, at Varsity Maps.
The three main features that will make Varsity Maps one of the best startup techs that will transform the educational sector includes:
Easy Navigation – With the app, anyone can search for locations, buildings, room numbers, and events, and easily find it. This will help make campus navigating less confusing, thereby increasing productivity.
Better Communication – Communication is key in every campus and school environment. Varsity maps offer tools that allow staff and students to share information about campus closures and classroom changes, and highlight evacuation areas in real-time.
Safety And Protection Of Staff And Students – Varsity Maps comes with an alert feature that makes it easy to alert school security of an emergency; be it a fire, accident, or even a violent breakout. Once school security receives the alert, they are immediately provided with the location of the incident, which can save valuable time.
Protecting The Future Of Our Children
Our children need to be protected because they are the future. An application like Varsity Maps provides the perfect tool to ensure adequate security in campuses, through effective alert and response. The Pennsylvania State University shooting and the recent Wake Forest University campus shooting is a reminder of the sad security situation in the institutions of learning. Varsity Maps is an effort to combat violence and sexual assault in the education system and institutions of higher learning with the use of modern technology.
