Emergency Notification Platform Wins Prestigious Innovation Award

PITTSBURGH (June 26, 2009) -Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) has been awarded the Technology Innovator of the Year honors for its work in evaluating, testing and implementing a new emergency warning system. The award, issued annually by Campus Technology Magazine, recognizes the university's implementation of the Metis Secure emergency notification platform developed by Metis Secure Solutions of Oakmont, PA - the nation's leading provider of location-based warning systems. The Metis Secure system, a faster and more accurate method of emergency notification, is scheduled to be installed at Mellon Institute on the CMU campus later this year.

 The Campus Technology Innovators Award recognizes higher education institutions and their vendor partners that have pursued, and successfully launched, initiatives that reach beyond today's IT applications to create tomorrow's educational technology practices-serving as models to other institutions seeking best-of-breed information to help them meet their own campus challenges.

"We congratulate these leading colleges and universities, their project teams and solution providers for their vision and leadership, and for pushing the envelope by taking their technology investments to new heights," says Wendy LaDuke, President and Group Publisher of 1105 Media's Education Group.
