Alert Solutions Launches Speak Up! Anti‐Bullying Management Platform
Speak Up! reduces bullying and cyberbullying incidents through anonymous two‐way communication.

Press release: PROVIDENCE, RI – Alert Solutions, an expert in cloud‐based multi‐channel messaging communication and Pearson PowerSchool partner, is excited to announce the launch of Speak Up!, an anti‐bullying monitoring and management platform for K‐12 schools.

The Speak Up! platform provides schools with anonymous reporting and two‐way communication methods via voice and text, enabling students to easily report bullying and cyberbullying incidents without disclosing who they are.

Alert Solutions’ CEO, David Baeder, remarked, “Bullying and cyberbullying are sensitive obstacles school community members face on a daily basis. Speak Up! is a valuable tool for teachers, students and staff to help combat this growing problem while maintaining compliance with increasingly stringent state anti‐bullying regulations.”

Currently, 49 states in the US have enacted anti‐bullying legislation, many of which require schools to implement an anonymous reporting system.

Speak Up! was designed to help dramatically reduce school bullying and cyberbullying incidents by easing the stigma of talking to trusted adults through maintaining student anonymity.
