RapidSOS Launches Partner Network to Bring Public Safety Tools to 911
The network brings technology such as drones, multimedia, geospatial layers and more to RapidSOS Ready Emergency Communications Centers.
NEW YORK — RapidSOS has unveiled the RapidSOS Partner Network, a community of public safety software companies that deliver their product offerings through the RapidSOS Portal, a solution for Emergency Communication Centers (ECCs) that provides critical data to 911 and first responders.
By doing so, ECCs across the United States, Mexico and Canada are able to unify multiple public safety tools and resources into one platform, according to an announcement.
Public safety technology companies can now distribute their offerings across the fragmented North American 911 system. 911 and first responder agencies can now access cutting-edge public safety technologies including drones, smart city systems, body cameras, building access controls and indoor maps all in one standardized platform.
The RapidSOS Partner Network expands on the company’s existing network of more than 40 public safety software companies such as Motorola Solutions, Hexagon and CentralSquare that integrate with the RapidSOS emergency response data platform and RapidSOS Portal.
The RapidSOS Partner Network builds on this partner ecosystem and features 20 inaugural members, including: 911eye, 911inform, Axon, CRG, DataTech911, Equature, Everbridge, Fugro, FIRST iZ powered by Genesis PULSE, GeoComm, Mark43, NextNav, NICE, NSION, One Hundred Feet, PublicSonar, Rave Mobile Safety, Roadside Telematics Corp., SOMA Global, and Zetron.
Each of these companies is a technology leader with a deep relationship and footprint across the public safety landscape, according to the announcement.
Built in partnership with the public safety industry, the RapidSOS Platform is said to securely links life-saving data from more than 350 million connected devices to 911 and first responders in an emergency. The RapidSOS Partner Network is the next step in the platform’s evolution toward using technology to support first responders in their life-saving work, the announcement states.
“RapidSOS was built over the past eight years through partnerships with every major public safety software company and thousands of first responders,” says RapidSOS Co-Founder and CEO Michael Martin. “I’m excited to expand on that work by allowing our partners to distribute best-in-class technologies directly into the existing software systems used by 911 agencies across North America.”
Network members integrate their solutions with the RapidSOS Portal to distribute across the company’s network of over 5,000 ECCs, build brand awareness and leverage the company’s team of 911 experts to educate public safety agencies on their technologies.
