Integrated mobile app for situation management

Qognify : 11 December, 2014  (New Product)
Nice situation management platform has been integrated with CloudScann mobile application to enable smartphones to be used for incident management
Integrated mobile app for situation management

Video cameras help maintain safety and security, but a new partnership is providing a new perspective on the ground for security organizations. NICE Systems and CloudScann have announced an integrated mobile application solution, turning smartphones into reporting tools to document incidents as they happen and allowing officials to act faster to resolve them.

The integrated solution combines NICE’s situation management solution, Situator, with CloudScann’s hosted See It Send It mobile app. By using the app on their smartphones, field personnel can report incidents, including sending video and photos, to a centralized command center through NICE Situator. Communication is bi-directional, so Situator can also push incident alerts, task lists, and links to live video feeds to the mobile app. This will extend the real-time awareness of safety, security, and operational issues for the largest statewide public transportation system in the USA.

Situator pinpoints the GPS location of the sender’s phone as the incident location, and can then pull up video feeds from nearby surveillance cameras. The command center operator immediately sees who’s sending the alert, where it originated, what’s happening, and what actions to take. The app is also equipped with a panic button.

NJ TRANSIT has already deployed the solution at a major event, and plans to extend the use of the app for daily use among its maintenance, customer service, and transit police personnel. For example, maintenance staff will be able to view assigned work orders, their location and related video, and report back to the control room when the job is complete.

Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE Security Group said, “By extending these capabilities to field personnel for daily use and to transit employees for large events, organizations will gain unprecedented situational awareness to help ensure the highest levels of security, safety, operational efficiency, and customer service for passengers. We believe it’s a model in mobile technology innovation that other transit agencies will surely want to emulate.”

Dan Kerning, CEO, CloudScann, “The CloudScann See It Send It app and NICE Situator technologies are truly complementary. The combination of the two promises significant benefits, not only for transit but for other organizations that want to improve their situational awareness, communication, and collaboration.”

NICE’s security solutions help organizations capture, analyze and make use of big data to anticipate, manage and mitigate security and safety risks, improve operations, and make the world a safer place. The NICE security, intelligence and cyber offerings provide valuable insights that enable enterprises and government agencies to take the best action at the right time by correlating structured and unstructured data from multiple sensors and channels, detecting irregular patterns, and recognizing trends. The solutions have been deployed to help secure a broad range of organizations and events, such as banks, utility companies, airports, seaports, city centers, transportation systems, major tourist attractions, as well as sporting events and diplomatic meetings.
