Region of Waterloo (Ontario) Selects EmerGeo and WebEOC for Regional Emergency Operation Centre
Software to support the Regional Emergency Operation Centre and local communities.
VANCOUVER, B.C., June 30, 2005
EmerGeo Solutions of Vancouver, B.C. is please to announce that the Regional Municipality of Waterloo (Ontario) has selected EmerGeo™ emergency mapping and WebEOC® crisis management software.
This decision was made after a competitive tendering process (RFP) and included onsite visits to watch the crisis management software in action and speak to its users. The web-based software will be implemented in the Region’s emergency operation centre later this year and used to track and coordinate response activities and resources during emergencies and exercises.
WebEOC has web-based status boards that can be linked to EmerGeo mapping for real-time map display of incident, resource, shelter, hospital and other status information. Some of the key reasons that emergency organizations are choosing WebEOC and EmerGeo are flexibility (import your HTML forms or build your own web status boards from scratch), cost effectiveness (unlimited web user license and minimal training requirements), and ease of use (use productively with 5-10 minute orientation).
“Crisis management software is not used every day and training budgets and resources are very limited in most organizations. EmerGeo™ and WebEOC® have proven again that they are the easiest to learn and most cost-effective solution of any of the leading crisis management software systems”, states Mike Morrow , Director of EmerGeo Solutions, Inc.
Many vendors claim they have the easiest system to use but we prefer to prove it. Contact us for your WebEOC demo system password and test drive it for yourself.
