Colleges and universities today are deeply challenged by needless technical obstacles to discharging duties to mitigate foreseeable risks to the safety and security of students studying abroad. Current travel-tracking solutions are antiquated and ineffective.
To the extent a school has the foresight and maturity to offer products and services like emergency contact cards or check-in apps, students are overwhelmingly unaware or disengaged. The schools own the risk but are flying blind.
In fact, nearly 70% of students did not report their side-trips and/or their independent off-campus travel while on school-sponsored programs. The information gap is bad for everyone.
Students need safety and security services, but don’t voluntarily adopt them, even when available or made mandatory. Social connections, adventure, and budget drive student travel behaviors.
Safety and security are after-thoughts or “no-thoughts”—third on their totem pole of travel anxieties. When something goes wrong, the school is exposed not only to incident-related loss and expense, but disproportionate harm to reputation, and to strategic objectives to promote wide use of study abroad options.
For this reason, we created OffWeGo, a student-centric, mobile-first solution equally valuable and appealing to university risk managers and student travelers. We streamline the data collection of student travel by bundling key safety features from our travel assistance partners, with social and monetary incentives that keep students engaged and an active participant in the reporting process.

BIM Engineering US
“How can utilizing smarter technology lead to informed, more effective results across the entire project lifecycle?” This is the question that drives us to do what we do. Our background in BIM integration, project management, design-build operations, preconstruction, and innovative strategic planning allow us to truly understand client challenges and find the most effective technological solutions.
We enjoy introducing teams to new technologies as a means of improving collaboration and reducing waste and unnecessary costs. We deliver customized solutions across platforms such as Apple’s iOS apps, Google’s Android apps, Autodesk Apps, Revit, AutoCAD, Revit MEP, CAD MEP, Bentley, FM Systems, Tekla, and more.
We partner with firms to evaluate these types of technological needs, so that our clients are able to design, visualize, and replicate the key characteristics of their project digitally—before they begin construction. Through this work, building owners and facility managers can realize the benefits of these technologies long after construction is complete.
Over the past several years, BIM and mobile technologies have arguably become one of the most significant advances in the A/E/C industry, and have contributed to improvements on multiple levels. Benefits include mitigation of risk, lower overall costs, higher quality, smarter field reporting, and safer workplaces.
We have been utilizing and creating process improvements in BIM and field technologies since its early years. Our experience serving as a construction technology leader allow us see the need for more technological improvements in this sector.
Every day, we work with builders, designers, and owners seeking to supplement traditional project-delivery methods with technology-driven processes.. .

Taylor Robinson Music
Taylor Robinson Music is a top quality provider of private, local, music instruction in guitar, piano, voice, drums, bass, and songwriting. Just pick the Taylor Robinson Music instructor and location right for you.
Taylor Robinson Music instructors offer a unique and innovative approach to modern music training. Shying away from the conventional, solely academic methods of teaching, our students learn to play “from the heart”.
Many Taylor Robinson Music certified instructors have toured nationally or internationally in modern music projects. Many are professional songwriters, recording artists, and performing musicians and it is this real-world experience that makes their approach unique.
Accordingly, the lessons often stress technique instead of text and focus on practice by playing songs instead of repeating drills. Moreover, instead of learning standard beginner songs like “Mary had a little lamb”, Taylor Robinson Music instructors often opt to teach by using the songs that the student is most interested in.
They cover all genres of music including rock, pop, metal, alternative rock, acoustic singer/songwriter, blues and country. By using this hands-on approach, students remain motivated in their lessons and are much more likely to stick with their instruments for life.
Students can opt to go to one of our locations for lessons or they can have their instructor come to them. Lessons can also be provided remotely through the easy-to-use One-click Webcam tool.
