Integrated software and services platform helps property managers better protect people and buildings

Preparis, Inc., the leading provider of web-based emergency preparedness services, announced today at the Atlanta NAIOP event that Monarch Centre has selected Preparis as its emergency preparedness solutions provider.

Preparis provides an on-demand emergency preparedness suite that is designed to help commercial buildings improve tenant retention, increase brand differentiation and limit liability. From online training to emergency messaging to constantly updated expert content, Preparis offers the Monarch Centre complex, managed by Grubb & Ellis, an organized and complete approach to developing and implementing their property’s emergency preparedness program.

“Life safety is of the utmost importance in our industry and it’s also a concern of our tenant companies,” said Monarch Centre’s General Manager, Marc Woodward. “Since we announced that we were implementing an emergency preparedness solution to ready our property for 21st century threats, we’ve received a lot of positive feedback. Our tenants really appreciate the value that Preparis adds to our preparedness efforts.”

Commercial property managers are responsible for large numbers of people, but outdated contact information, untrained tenant floor wardens, and slow, outdated methods of notification such as phone trees can often negatively impact the effectiveness of their emergency response. Preparis helps property managers tackle these problems by giving them the tools to keep building and contact information up to date simply and effectively, alert tenants via phone, text and email in a matter of seconds, respond to all hazards effectively and make better decisions in a crisis. To fully leverage the mobile capabilities of the Preparis platform, a subscription also includes an iPad to allow property managers to keep important information at their fingertips when they need it most.
