telent, Intergraph and Frequentis form a strategic partnership to address the UK fire market
telent, Intergraph and Frequentis today announced a partnership that provides a comprehensive mobilising solution for the United Kingdom fire market.
By offering a standardised, coordinated framework for products, implementation and services, the partnership lowers risk, compresses project schedules and offers better value for fire customers.
“The increased scale and scope of modern mobilising systems demand greater integration and coordination, both organisationally and in terms of technology. This places them beyond the scope of a single provider and requires a significant element of project services,” Chris Metcalfe, Managing Director for telent’s Technology Solutions business. “The partnership between telent, Intergraph and Frequentis overcomes this hurdle, offering a unique understanding of the specific safety and operational requirements of public sector emergency services.”
Increasingly frequent severe weather events, heightened national security concerns and budgetary restrictions are changing UK Fire and Rescue Services’ requirements for fire mobilisation. Accordingly, many are looking to implement modernised mobilisation platforms with the aim of expanding capacity, flexibility, and resilience by working smarter to share load and coordinate resources across services and escalate incidents during major events.
The UK Fire offering resulting from the partnership meets these needs by drawing on best-in-class technology and extensive market experience, and carrying forward insight gained during the development of FiReControl. Specific capabilities of the partners include:
- A specialist in systems integration and services for critical communications, telent supports some of the largest UK public safety organisations including Merseyside Fire and Rescue and the Met Police.
- Protecting one in twelve of the world’s population, Intergraph is the world’s leading provider of computer aided dispatch and incident response solutions. Its implementations span every level from single, local operation centres to national, multi-centre operations.
- Frequentis is a world leader in integrated communication control and command and control centre solutions. Its critical voice communication systems are in use throughout the world.
