[Wall, NJ]: On September 3, 2020, Frost & Sullivan honored 911inform with the 2020 New Product Innovation Award in Enterprise Safety Solutions. This award recognizes 911inform for identifying the current gaps in legacy E9-1-1 communications infrastructure and providing new, innovative NG911 tools that deliver enhanced situational awareness to first responders in emergency situations. This is the first year that Frost & Sullivan has recognized Product Innovation in Enterprise Safety Solutions, making 911inform the inaugural recipient.
911inform’s solution is easy to use and deploy and requires no extra software downloads or unnecessary equipment. This helps internal staff monitor and react quickly to any event. 911inform runs in parallel on the new NG911 network to dispatch centers covering more than 93% of the US population and can pinpoint the exact location of an emergency call. Additionally, instant notifications are sent to response teams when an event in a 911inform geofenced building occurs. Attached to each notification are detailed floor plans and other critical information that allows first responders to efficiently and quickly get to those who need help.
“As I researched and understood the problem that Public Safety was facing in protecting citizens in an emergency, it was obvious that the current technology could not give public safety the situational awareness they needed,” said Ivo Allen, President and CEO, 911inform. “At 911inform we are currently installing tomorrow’s technology today. Public Safety has always been blind to the critical information needed to provide life-saving services within the enterprise. At 911inform our goal was to deliver a solution, based on NG911 services, that provided a bridge between the enterprise and public safety. Once an incident has been resolved that information and technology is re-secured within the Enterprise boundary.”
“In the era of mobility, Big Data, and the Internet of Things, the public safety sector is just beginning to tap into the true opportunity and benefits of situational awareness,” said Brent Iadarola, VP Mobile & Wireless, Frost & Sullivan. “911inform proactively supports public safety by integrating network-derived location information with real-time data from a variety of building security and management systems. This supplies highly accurate, actionable, and timely incident intelligence to public safety entities and location owners over a central platform.”
