Provide us with a brief summary of your business’ services.
At Status Solutions, we help those who are most vulnerable, whether that’s a student, a senior, a patient, or a lone worker, by empowering them with critical information to allow for proactive communication. When the right people can receive detailed information about what’s happening around them- from a blown fuse to an armed intruder – they can do something about it. Situational awareness creates time to respond, and that’s critical for life safety as well as optimizing business operations. Our technology does more than solve your problems, it improves the lives of everyone around it.
For 19 years we’ve been providing situational awareness technology solutions through our industry experience and unique business models, across the US and Canada.
Tell us about your company’s mission and values.
At Status Solutions we believe it’s our responsibility to leave any situation better than we found it. Whether that’s in a school, hospital, senior living community, or anywhere else, we want to help people, it’s as simple as that. We believe that awareness is important, but empowerment is vital. We do more than provide people with the information they need, we provide them with a full solution so they are able to take meaningful action to properly protect and operate their organization.
What are the services you use the most (or are looking forward to using) from the Columbus Chamber?
We are looking forward to working with the Columbus Chamber to help deliver our mission, improve brand recognition and further our goal of improving lives of seniors and students. Status Solutions believes that by merging the power of communities with our technology expertise we can holistically identify and address the needs of schools and senior living facilities. With that being said, we are eager to connect with other like-minded and passionate organizations and individuals to strengthen innovation, awareness and reduce risk within these organizations.
How do you stay engaged with trends that you see in your industry?
Innovation is never finished. The landscape of day-to-day life is changing. The way businesses are run, information is received, and safety measures are implemented is more challenging than ever before. At Status Solutions we pride ourselves on our commitment to providing not only the leading capabilities of today but growing with our customers in the years to come and working hand-in-hand to overcome the obstacles ahead, together. With that being said, to ensure we stay on top of trends within our various markets we work closely with our customers to receive firsthand feedback as to what they are seeing. If we aren’t meeting the ongoing needs of our customers, then we’re not doing our job.
What is your company culture like?
Status Solutions is made up of many different personalities and expertise, which is typical of a software company, but here we have a tight knit group of passionate and driven individuals that truly embody our purpose and mission. Our employees don’t come to work every day to simply clock in and clock out, they come into work to “help people” and that means something different to everyone – whether that’s improving the lives of seniors, contributing to our fundraising efforts to fight cancer through Pelotonia or keeping students and teachers safe at school. Many of our employees choose to work here because they connect with our solutions and causes on a personal level, they know that what we do can not only help people in general, but can benefit a loved one.
Status Solutions’ founder, Mike MacLeod, is a scientist at heart and promotes his love of cause and effect in the business and amongst employees. Our cause is to help people, whether that’s a customer, a coworker, or the community at larger, and in effect everyone can benefit from the good that comes out of it.
Made up of strong-minded employees with unique talents, Status Solutions works to achieve one common goal, to defeat ignorance-based loss.
What does it take to be a successful employee at your company?
Alignment with our core values, purpose and mission.
What makes Columbus such a great place to do business?
