CENTEGIX was founded in 2016 by Daniel Dooley on the idea that technology can create safer, more secure learning environments. Recognizing that incidents are going to happen and an effective solution for an incident response was lacking, led to the development of the CrisisAlert platform. Through the design of an Internet of Things network powered by a private security network CENTEGIX delivers a SaaS cloud solution that provides coverage and location in practice down to 10 feet. The result is real-time crisis management when every second matters. Known not only as an innovator of technology but also as a thought leader in security for public spaces, CENTEGIX is expanding into other verticals, including healthcare, hospitality, government, and the corporate marketplace.
