Introducing Hero by PlascoTrac, a New Cloud-Based Incident Management Solution for K-12 Schools and Districts


MIAMI, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today PlascoTrac, the leader in student behavior tracking applications in the K-12 education market, announces new product initiatives designed to better meet the technological, budgetary, and student behavior management needs of K-12 schools and districts nationwide. PlascoTrac is now focused on three main pillars of campus management including classroom & student incident management, visitor tracking & school security, and student ID badging. The first product being introduced under PlascoTrac is Hero, a cloud-based incident management solution that gives administrators and teachers the ability to track student behavior in the classroom, reinforce positive behavior, and analyze how the student behavior impacts scholastic performance in their school. Hero takes the power of PlascoTrac and moves it to a cloud-based application complete with a comprehensive suite of tools to help identify the heroes in every school.

Hero by PlascoTrac is cloud-based Classroom Management & School Incident Management. Dashboard shows teachers and administrators a quick view of student performance. Hero is also available for Android and iOS devices.

"We've learned a lot from the thousands of schools we have worked with over the years," said Alan Mendelson, President and CEO of PlascoTrac. "Hero is a direct response to their request for simpler tools to gain insight about their school environment, easier implementation, and better accessibility to more team members in the school."

As the education industry has evolved, the need for mobile and cloud-based applications in the classroom and around campus has exploded. While it possesses many of the powerful features of the legacy PlascoTrac system, Hero represents a significant evolution and refinement of the concept. Teachers and administrators now have the power to track incidents, referrals, good and bad student behavior, and event attendance from a desktop, the Hero Mobile Scanning Solution, or Android or iOS devices. And with an affordable, tiered pricing strategy and little to no need for IT setup, Hero is a solution that can benefit any school.

"Hero is a big step towards solving serious challenges schools face," said Mark MacDonald, Vice President of PlascoTrac. "Take bullying...imagine if schools could easily track where these incidents happen, what students are involved, how frequently the activity happens, etc. This information helps them intervene quickly, armed with far more trend information than they have today. Hero is not just a product sold to schools, we support the movement towards eliminating these elements from school."

PlascoTrac admits the Hero name is a lot to live up to.

"We chose the Hero name as an aspirational challenge for our team, not because we claim to be heroes ourselves," indicates Bryan Landaburu, Director of Marketing for PlascoTrac. "Our heroes are the teachers, students, and administrators at every school who strive for greatness and a better school experience every single day."

Watch for a series of exciting announcements about Hero and the PlascoTrac team, planned throughout 2014.  To learn more about Hero, visit http://heropowered.com.
