Latest Version of Smart911 Provides Advanced PSAP Reporting, Enhanced Consumer Registration Options, and a Commitment to i3 Additional Data Guidelines
Rave Mobile Safety, a leading provider of safety software solutions, today announced the latest version of Smart911. Smart911 2.0 is the industry’s first and only National Additional Data Provider that meets recommendations in The National Emergency Number Association (NENA) i3 Technical Requirements Document. Smart911 clients are the first on a path to Next Generation 9-1-1 functionality that dramatically improves public safety within their municipalities. Smart911 provides citizens with the ability to create a Safety Profile that is made available to 9-1-1 call takers through a secure website at www.Smart911.com. The latest version of Smart911 (available in early Q3 2011) will provide additional language options for citizens and enables simple registration through FacebookTM, making it even easier for citizens to register for the free service. Smart911 2.0 also features advanced reporting allowing PSAPs to analyze and benchmark their performance against similar PSAPs in their region or across the U.S., and a set of expanded application programming interfaces (APIs) for 3rd party providers of public safety solutions to embed Smart911 data into their applications.
“As a large PSAP supporting hundreds of thousands of households, we take pride in offering leading safety solutions to keep our citizens safe”, said Duane Phillips, Director, Metro Nashville ECC. “Smart911 is an extremely valuable tool, which helps us to better understand how to help our citizens during an emergency. We are pleased in the commitment to continuously innovate Smart911, as well as Rave Mobile Safety’s commitment to i3 compliance, thereby future-proofing our investment.”
In addition to enhanced reporting, the latest version of Smart911 2.0 further simplifies and enhances the citizen registration process. It will include multi-lingual registration and account management sites, and fields for pet information and additional photos, such as a home photo, to further assist first responders in citizen response. Citizens can also easily register through a Facebook interface. Additionally, Smart911 2.0 makes available enhanced programming interfaces that allow third parties such as CAD and 9-1-1 CTI vendors to embed and utilize the rich additional data set available in Smart911 profiles.
“Rave Mobile Safety is committed to developing the most reliable technology that meets the highest level of industry standards,” said Tom Axbey, Rave Mobile Safety, president and CEO. “Being the first National Additional Data Provider to meet i3 Compliance demonstrates our commitment to this goal. We’re excited to provide PSAPs with a technology that will support Next Generation 911 standards and deliver new organizational and industry visibility with advanced reporting. Better yet, with new registration capabilities, now it’s easier than ever for citizens to sign-up for Smart911.”
