RapidDeploy, which calls itself “the industry’s only truly open and integrated emergency response platform”, has entered into agreements to use data from Google and other companies in the development of its service.
The full list of partners is Google, OnStar, ADT, Priority Dispatch® and Rave Mobile Safety – some of the largest and most influential companies in technology and public safety.
The new partners will join its Unified Critical Response programme, which already includes companies like AT&T and Microsoft.
“In order for our industry to thrive and evolve, we need to establish and grow an open and collaborative partner ecosystem,” stated Steven Raucher, CEO and co-founder of RapidDeploy. “By joining forces with these tech and innovation power houses, we are one step closer to unifying the end-to-end public safety workflow.
“This ecosystem is pivotal to transforming voice-centric 911 centres into data-driven organisations.”
RapidDeploy is arming telecommunicators and first responders with more real-time information and situational awareness so they can reduce overall response times and save more lives.
The company said its cloud-native platform will democratise public safety so that every 911 agency, regardless of geography or budget, can access the most innovative technology solutions.
