Written by: Philip Mason | Published:

APD Communications has partnered with RapidDeploy to provide what it describes as “a complete hosted solution for control room operations globally.”

The collaboration will combine APD’s software-only integrated communication control system Cortex, and RapidDeploy’s mission-critical dispatch solution.

The Cortex software is designed to bring radio, telephony, CCTV and access control together on one screen. RapidDeploy’s computer aided dispatch platform meanwhile is aimed at providing precise address location, improved situational awareness.

Speaking of the collaboration, APD marketing and sales manager Rhiannon Beeson said: “We’re delighted to be working with a partner that shares our vision for cloud-based technologies that break the boundaries of tech development.

“Our complementary technologies will sit alongside each other to create a full control room suite for handling calls through our Cortex software and dispatching the required resources through RapidDeploy.”

Steven Raucher, chief executive officer of RapidDeploy, said: “By announcing this partnership, we have selected the most innovative control room integrator in both the UK and United Arab Emirates. We look forward to building a successful partnership as we bring our best of breed CAD solution to a broader public safety market.”

The partnership builds on APD’s existing relationship with Sopra Steria, and its command and control solution, SmartSTORM.
