e2Campus® today announced the launch of a revolutionary new “Bully Deterrent System” called uTip – The Bully Buster. The uTip service evolved into a first of its kind approach from its previous release last year. It now offers schools a combination of technology to instantly report bullying along with free promotional materials to psychologically deter would-be bullies. Because it is cloud-based and uses standard text messaging, uTip can be implemented in less than five minutes. The company is offering free one-year pilot programs to schools that sign up for uTip before August 31, 2012.
“Let’s stop bullying together,” explained Ara Bagdasarian, CEO of e2Campus. “We’re so certain this new solution will reduce bullying and crime at your school that we guarantee it. Success is not only measured by the number of tips the school receives, but also by the reduction in bullying incidents.
“When a school displays the eye-catching uTip posters in high vulnerability areas, it acts as a constant reminder to would-be bullies that hundreds of eyes are watching, and any one of them could be an anonymous tipster – even their friend. We feel this combination of technology with psychology will make a revolutionary new difference to stop bullying.”
The news from e2Campus comes on the heels of an announcement from the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services about the re-launch of their website www.StopBullying.gov.
