Bannister Lake Rolls Out School Closing Notification Software

A new software tool aims to help schools notify students and parents about school closures and event cancellations due to inclement weather conditions.

BL Snow Day, from Bannister Lake, enables schools, television stations, and municipalities to broadcast information about school cancellations, bus delays, early dismissals and more through multiple channels. Notifications can be sent, in real time, to the Web, mobile devices, digital signage networks, and campus TV systems.

The solution features a Web-based workflow that allows content producers to "pre-schedule content for future play out, and set automatic story expiration," according to a company statement. The software also includes automation and editorial tools that allow producers to curate local news stories, images, and video into content packages for later broadcast.

BL Snow Day integrates with broadcast graphics systems that read RSS, XML, ODBC, and JSON feeds. The solution is available in an enterprise server version, a cloud-based SaaS version, and solid-state, portable Nano turnkey version. Additional details can be found online at www.bannisterlake.com.
