DISPATCH ANYWHERE – “9-1-1 where there is none”
Beacon allows decentralized dispatching to build emergency response networks anywhere there’s a mobile phone signal.
SIMPLE SET UP AND MANAGEMENT
Beacon pulls the cord on traditional “9-1-1” emergency dispatch technologies, allowing any personal device or laptop to receive alerts and automate the emergency response workflow.
Lots of responders? Lots of incidents? Users with both smartphones and feature phones? Beacon works as a standalone dispatch system or augments existing ones to meet local needs on a large scale.
Interactions with Beacon require minimal input, designed to be easily followed and predictable with minimal training time required.
