Intermedix, Rave Mobile Safety develop partnership to expand support for shared clients

Intermedix and Rave Mobile Safety announced a new partnership integrating the companies’ emergency alert and crisis information management platforms.

“Connectivity and interoperability are key components of effective emergency response,” said Intermedix CEO Joel Portice. “The integration of WebEOC and Rave Alert is yet another example of our commitment to provide emergency preparedness personnel with the tools they need when they need them the most.”

WebEOC is the industry leader in web-based crisis management software used by more than 600 government agencies in the United States and more than 25 countries around the world. Built to support the mission of crisis management, public safety and emergency response personnel, WebEOC has evolved to provide simplified information access promoting intelligent incident response and business resiliency.

Rave Alert emergency notification system enables thousands of educational institutions, enterprises, and state and local governments to communicate with and alert entire populations in minutes. Rave Alert utilizes all available methods (mobile phones, landlines, email, text messages, IPAWS-OPEN) to quickly and easily deliver critical information. Built on Rave’s public safety grade infrastructure, Rave Alert delivers millions of alerts daily to the right people, before, during and after emergencies

The Rave Alert Extension for WebEOC will connect the mass notification solution to the crisis management software. Through the integration, multimodal broadcast alerts can be sent from within WebEOC, and incident creation processes can be initiated within Rave Alert.

“Our goal is to provide the emergency response community with the most effective way to communicate with their constituents,” said Rave Mobile Safety CEO Tom Axbey. “This integration is key component of enhancing resilience and providing emergency responders with a common operating picture.”

Demonstrations of the extension will be available for attendees of the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators’ Annual Conference & Exposition from June 24 to June 28, as well as for attendees of the 2016 National Homeland Security Conference from June 28 to June 30.
