One of the advantages of the RapidDeploy solution that we really think is going to be a benefit is the fact that the location information is automatically provided to the PSAP. What that means is that they don’t have to enter into a secondary screen a phone number and do a look up. The information is simply there on the screen for them to display. It’s a huge game changer
After spending two years to complete our last ‘traditional’ CAD implementation I realized that the industry will never truly get to take advantage of the benefits of Next Generation technologies in if we continue this way. Our systems have become beasts that come with huge capital funding commitments, are not adaptable, are difficult to interface with and limit the ability to partner with other industry leaders. I told myself that the CAD industry needs to re-machine themselves to adopt common service platforms. Then I had the opportunity to witness a RapidDeploy demo, and I knew I wasn’t crazy. Someone is actually doing this! Imagine rapid CAD deployments with no downtime and integrations with applications providing services valuable to Emergency Response…in DAYS, not YEARS. It’s there!
Out-of-the-box thinking and development from RapidDeploy! Built by responders, without the limitations and barriers of legacy 9-1-1. Cloud technology and hosted systems are available today, bringing efficiencies and interfaces for additional multi-media data. The opportunities for interoperability, scalability and new features from this modern solution are truly exciting.
RapidDeploy built their CAD from scratch without using legacy technology or theories – as a hosted system. This allowed them to create an ever-evolving, feature-rich product using the most current technology that seamlessly integrates with other IP technologies – at a fraction of the cost of a traditional CAD. It answers the question ‘if Google can do it, why can’t Public Safety?’ Even if you aren’t in the market for a CAD, this is worth a look. It is the future of CAD.
RapidDeploy is leveraging the future of the cloud and mobile!
