The new partnership will provide fire agencies using Hexagon’s computer-aided dispatch (CAD) solutions direct access to FlowMSP’s pre-planning and incident response tools from within the CAD system’s interface. Additionally, Hexagon CAD data will now be available within the FlowMSP mobile app.
Through the FlowMSP integration, Hexagon CAD customers will be able to access their pre-plans quickly, including hydrant data, calculated flow rates, images, annotations and more, without toggling between software tools. The integrated bundle will save valuable space on departments’ mobile data terminal while facilitating ease of use.
By providing rich, pre-planning data within a firefighter’s workflow, the Hexagon / FlowMSP integration streamlines the flow of crucial information as firefighters respond to incidents. Now, firefighters can efficiently plan a response while en route, arriving at the incident with strategy in place.
Pre-plans are critical for first responders
“Obtaining accurate pre-plans, mobile mapping and routing and notifications is critical for first responders,” said Ben Ernst, Vice-President and General Manager for Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division. “Through our partnership with FlowMSP, we can provide fire departments a much-needed capability that will improve the speed and accuracy of incident response.”
“We are excited to partner with Hexagon,” added Jason Marvel, Co-Founder and CEO of FlowMSP. “This partnership will transform how fire departments respond to incidents, resulting in dramatically improved outcomes nationwide and, ultimately, globally.”
Hexagon’s solutions help protect one in nine people worldwide. The company’s public safety and security solutions improve the quality, accuracy and availability of critical information, increasing performance and productivity, while reducing the total cost of ownership for mission-critical IT investments.
