nFocus Solutions®, the leading provider of performance management solutions to more than 4,500 clients nationwide, has reached an agreement with General Dynamics C4 Systems to become the exclusive domestic supplier of GeoSuite®. GeoSuite is a software tool that enables first responders, law enforcement and other public safety professionals to view, collect and share real-time and historical data with one another, throughout a mission. The tool is now part of a line of software from nFocus Solutions designed to improve the effectiveness of community services.
The web-based, highly mobile GeoSuite tool fuses information from a wide variety of resources, combining it with relevant intelligence to form a real-time picture of a situation on a single display. This capability keeps public safety professionals better informed, which leads to faster and more effective decision making and improved safety.
The GeoSuite system was recently used during a first responder and public safety training event at Texas A&M’s Disaster City®. Hundreds of first responders from Texas public safety organizations, including the Texas National Guard, used GeoSuite to maintain a real-time flow of information and situational awareness among the participants. The three-day training event focused on disaster recovery efforts following a simulated tornado. In addition to other capabilities, GeoSuite captured images of a simulated collapsed structure, sending, with a tap on their computer screen, the information to training participants including medical, utility and hazardous material personnel working in the simulated debris field.
“One of the greatest challenges first responders and law enforcement officials face is access to real-time, mission critical information. GeoSuite is a game-changer in its ability to give field agents, dispatchers and command centers a single portal to collaborate, collect and map information, ultimately increasing efficiency and saving lives,” said Ananda Roberts, president of nFocus Solutions.
GeoSuite can run on any Windows®-based computer, as well as Android® or iOS-powered mobile devices. In addition to supporting public safety professionals' day-to-day activities, GeoSuite can help them coordinate and collaborate as they prepare security and response plans for events such as political gatherings, parades, dignitary transport, and large-scale sporting competitions.
