Company Overview 

How did Raptor become the nation’s leading provider of integrated school safety solutions? It started when we had the vision to build the first web-based visitor management system designed specifically for K-12. That system, Raptor Visitor Management, is now trusted to protect more schools than all other K-12 visitor management systems combined. Today, Raptor is trusted by over 35,000 K-12 U.S. schools, representing more than 5,000 districts. Every school day, Raptor screens over 350,000 visitors, flags 75 sex offenders, and alerts schools of 150 child custody issues.  


But we didn’t stop there, Raptor has grown into a fully integrated school safety software suite that enables schools to not only screen visitors, but also screen and track volunteers, report on drills, respond to emergencies, and reunite families.  Raptor Technologies is setting the standard for school safety by carrying out its mission to protect every child, every school, every day.
