School-Safe Solution

Delivering safety and security into every corner of any campus, we follow a turnkey methodology of managing districts' telephone systems, allowing teachers and staff to focus on what they do best.

RCom™ Unified Communications

RCom differs heavily from the legacy and proprietary telephone systems of the past. Legacy systems are comprised of desktop phones connected to licensing-driven, aging equipment that is hidden away in a back room. RCom is deployed utilizing a highly-available, redundant hosted services approach. Desktop phones connect to Rival5’s cloud-based systems using the district’s existing internet and network infrastructure.

With a variety of extension options available, RCom provides a flexible and comprehensive answer to meet the complex and ever-changing communications needs of a school district. RCom extends past desktop phones and offers seamless mobile integration, convenient web portal access from any device, and native cell phone dialing while on the go.

Standard RCom features include:
  • Voicemail-to-Email
  • System Notifications
  • Online User Portal
  • All-Call Paging
  • Information Boxes
  • Call Recording
  • Cellular Push-Pull
  • Intuitive Web-Based Administration
Our feature-packed, cloud-based, Unified Communications hosted telephone system customized to meet and exceed any school or district’s needs.

RVoice Telecom Service

The replacement for existing telephone services and lines to deliver concurrent call paths to and from the PSTN (public switched telephone network).
Peering with multiple nationwide carriers, RVoice employs QCR Quality Control Routing across all redundant call proxies to determine the most reliable path for optimized call performance. Continuous call path monitoring is leveraged to activate CBA Call Bursting Assuranceguaranteeing that callers never hear a busy signal.

RVoice exceeds FCC & state E911 laws, statutes, and regulations during call delivery in the event of an emergency. Direct tandem and ALI database access allows flexible, precise localization of callers and devices within school campuses.

RLock™ Emergency Notification Service

How RLock is activated can be customized to meet particular security requirements to ensure authorized and purposeful activation. Tightly integrated within RCom and RVoice, RLock uses existing infrastructure to provide an audible and visual notification to systems and devices throughout school campuses.
Rival5 network-enabled notification devices are deployed in areas where existing alerting and paging may be limited in availability or non-existent. Strategically placed strobe lights offer visual cues to occupants, while sound-sensing speakers automatically adjust volume based on ambient noise levels. Messages and notifications delivered to students and staff are custom-tailored to districts’ emergency action plans and protocols. With direct 911 and PSAP access, RLock easily accomplishes notification to local authorities.
Relieves the strain of timely and adequately notifying building occupants, administration, and public safety in the event of a crisis scenario.
