The partnership brings connected building capabilities, cell phone notifications, and location discovery solutions to TBI’s partner community.
CHICAGO, IL – TBI, the nation’s leading technology brokerage firm, announces the addition of 911inform to their provider portfolio. The 911inform solution is the only notification and security management platform that bridges the gap of communication and situational awareness between first responders and on-site personnel of an organization. Identifying the current gaps of legacy E911 communication infrastructure, 911inform provides new innovative NG911 tools to effectively manage and solve emergencies in record-breaking response times. 911inform doesn’t replace the existing 911 system but expands upon the network to take advantage of the technology an organization currently utilizes making the software customizable for each client.
The company currently provides three safety solution modules, which are connected building capabilities, cell phone notifications, and 911inform LDS (location discovery solution). The connected building solution delivers instant notifications providing the call's origin, up-to-date floor plans of the building, real-time communication with on-site personnel, and remote control of a building’s security systems. Each notification is interactive for the organization and first responders to have instant access to door controls, security cameras, alarms, strobes, voice controls, paging, facial recognition, gunshot detection, and many more features.
The cell phone notification module will alert an organization when a 911 call is dialed from a smartphone device, if located within defined property boundaries. Alerts sent to the enterprise do not contain the phone number or other personal information about the caller, maintaining complete anonymity and privacy. The notifications are generated by the PSAP/ECC, allowing any device to call 911 within a geofence without having a prior relationship nor having to require an app. Each notification provides the enterprise with information of when a call was placed and where with an overhead view of the property.
911inform LDS or location discovery solution simplifies and solves the tracking movement for IP phones. Eliminating the complex task of trying to associate phones with subnets or ports and the requirement of keeping convoluted cable management databases, a user is presented with a link through text or email that extracts the location from the device and updates the databases. This easy solution meets the requirements to abide RAY BAUM’S Act, Kari’s Law, Alyssa’s Law, and future legislation.
“This product gives you a competitive advantage. 911inform has exclusive functionality, which will set your offer apart in the marketplace and provide your customer and public safety a single pane of glass for situational awareness into all emergencies,” said 911inform’s Founder and CEO, Ivo Allen.
As a browser-based software and no extra apps to download, 911inform taps into the high demand of providing reliable tools for advanced security solutions using the customer’s existing technology. 911inform cannot be beaten with their unique products pushing out the competition that force customers to conform to preselected defined workflows.
“We are excited to add 911inform to TBI’s growing provider portfolio. With unplanned emergencies happening every day, we are proud to have a provider on board whose resources can help businesses and their workers during their time of need,” said TBI’s SVP of Strategic Partnerships, Scott Whalen.
911inform is the leading product in safety management and is dedicated to expanding future technology in NG911 capabilities. Their services are customizable to suit the needs of any industry such as enterprises, educational institutions, hospitals, state and local governments, arenas, and other organizations across the country.
