About Us

Company History

Status Solutions was founded by Mike MacLeod in 2001. In 1999, the tragic events of Columbine, Colorado devastated the world and sparked a lot of people into action to try to help keep schools safer. One of those people being Mike. In 2001, another tragedy hit the twin towers in New York City and Mike signed the papers to start Status Solutions in September of that year. For almost 20 years, Status Solutions has been dedicated to helping people, in particular the two groups of people that are the most at-risk, the very young (school-aged children) and the very old (those living in retirement communities). For years, Mike and his team of dedicated employees have helped keep thousands of communities safer by providing them Situational Awareness through his software platform SARA (Situational Awareness and Response Assistant). SARA is an alarm manager that allows communities to pull together all of their disparate systems into one uniform alerting platform.

In 2009, Mike had another idea. As more and more technology advancements were introduced, the digital divide between the silent generation and the generations before them became larger and larger, creating more social isolation for seniors and a lack of self service for our most at-risk population. Mike knew there had to be a way to bridge this digital divide. Thus, CATIE was born. CATIE (Communication and Access to Information Everywhere) is a communication platform that can be used in senior living communities and beyond for any/all self-service needs. It allows staff members, teachers, etc. to easily and efficiently communicate with their residents, students, etc.

Ignorance Vs. Awareness

Knowing what's going on around you and using that information to avoid loss is the goal of situational awareness. At Status Solutions, this is our cause, not just a product category, not just a software application, not just a job - but our contribution to society. We help organizations - from health-care companies and schools to hotels and manufacturing facilities - get strategic about risk management to prevent loss of life, property, business and convenience. We couldn't be more serious about defeating ignorance-based loss, and our dedication to this mission is what differentiates us.

Why do we do it? Because Right Now Matters Most.

Ignorance isn't bliss; it's dangerous. There's no time to waste when people and property could be in danger. But if customers can read, hear and see what's happening around them - from a blown fuse to a medical emergency to an armed intruder - they can do something about it. From the mundane to the extreme, situational awareness creates time to respond, and that's critical for life safety as well as keeping business operations running smoothly. Real-time and historical reports enable you to analyze response times and protocols to identify problems for the betterment of your organization and those you serve and employ.

How do we do it? With customized solutions.

We approach each customer engagement on a case-by-case basis, and based on thorough discovery, to deliver a customized solution for maximum performance and minimal maintenance. We're experts in computer-telephony integration (CTI), so we make all kinds of networks, sensors and communication devices work together. Our technologies harness triggering events - alarms - and turn them into awareness transactions - alerts with specific details about an unfolding situation sent to the people who need to know, based on each customer's protocols and escalation paths. With a single alerting platform, SARA, you can control all of your alarm and communication systems from a central point to improve life safety, security, environmental monitoring and mass notification.

At Status Solutions we are Committed to...

Because matters most.
