Awareity, a leading provider of incident management and prevention software platforms, has been recognized as a 2012 Honors Laureate by IDG’s Computerworld, for their web‐based TIPS (Threat Assessment, Incident Management and Prevention Services). The annual award program honors visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change.

“There’s no question technology plays a vital role in driving business forward. It ensures an organization’s ability to compete, innovate, communicate and to thrive. What the Computerworld Honors Laureates so clearly demonstrate is technology’s role in moving society forward. Computerworld acknowledges and applauds the outstanding work being done by individuals and organizations who have successfully used technology to improve the quality of our lives and that of future generations,” said John Amato, Vice President/Publisher of Computerworld. “Computerworld is proud to name the 2012 class of Laureates and celebrate their initiatives benefiting society through the innovative use of IT.”

Traditional incident reporting solutions are clearly not delivering the results organizations need. The TIPS platform providing an innovative and comprehensive suite of tools, equipping risk managers, threat assessment teams, risk assessment teams, legal teams, audit teams, and school safety teams to take appropriate actions, securely communicate and share information, and document all investigation and intervention efforts to prevent incidents rather than react to incidents.

Lessons learned clearly demonstrate school and organizational leaders cannot prevent what they don’t know about. Status quo and traditional methodologies are not working. TIPS provides comprehensive tools to improve incident reporting, bullying prevention, student and workplace safety, violence prevention, compliance, legal due diligence and more,” said Rick Shaw, President and CEO of Awareity. “To have Awareity’s TIPS program recognized by The Computerworld Honors Program further validates our commitment to delivering superior risk management and prevention solutions to our clients.”

The Computerworld Honors Program awards will be presented at the Gala Evening and Awards Ceremony on June 4, 2012
at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
