“I used GSTools to save a student on campus during a medical emergency,” said Dr. Todd Ullah, former Principal at George Washington HS. “Her medical notes, and emergency contact information was right there in my iPhone. I used this information to call for immediate and effective assistance.”

GSTools works with Apple’s latest operating system and written in Swift 3.

“Two days after GSTools was installed at Paul Revere Middle School, the computers were down,” explained Peter Hastings, Assistant Principal at Paul Revere Middle School (LAUSD). “During first period, a student began to experience chest pains; concerned adults immediately called for the paramedics. I was with the student in the classroom waiting for help. I pulled out my iPod touch launched Radar in GSTools, looked up the student’s emergency contact information, and retrieved home/work phone numbers for both parents. Both parents arrived before the ambulance. Fortunately everything turned out okay and under control. The parents were thankful and impressed by the quick action taken. Having on the spot access to student data was helpful and it provides necessary back up when the computers are down.”
