ViewPointe and Rhodium Suite Team Up to provide an Enhanced Common Operating Picture Solution to the City of Seattle
Yakima, Wash. – 4QTRS, LLC, a leading provider of common operating picture and situational awareness solutions for public safety, along with Incident Response Technologies (IRT), a leading provider of cloud-based incident management solutions for public safety, announced today that they have teamed up to provide The City of Seattle with an Enhanced Common Operating Picture Solution (eCOP). The eCOP solution will allow the City to view and interact with real time and operational information from a variety of sources, including the various CAD, RMS, GIS, and radio systems in use throughout the City on one easy-to-use common operating picture screen. The Rhodium Incident Management Suite will allow incident commanders and other incident staff to manage incidents in real time by tracking resource status, pre-plan information, and other critical ICS data while sharing information seamlessly with other system users.
4QTRS and IRT have developed an interoperable platform that combines 4QTRS ViewPointe client for managing and monitoring the day-to-day common operational picture with IRT’s Rhodium Incident Management Suite, to provide a complete situational awareness package for first responders, emergency managers, incident commanders, data fusion centers and emergency operations centers.
“We are excited to be working with 4QTRS to bring a robust common operating picture and incident management solution to the City of Seattle,” says Jarret Winkelman, IRT’s Director of Sales. “We are confident that this solution will prove to be a model for other cities around the world to solve an increasingly problematic interoperability issue in the public safety industry; the use of multiple software programs that are not capable of sharing data. The ability to view multiple data sources and manage detailed incident specific information has never been easier, more accessible, or more functional than with the ViewPointe and Rhodium Suite integrated eCOP solution.”
“The partnership between 4QTRS and Rhodium brings together two strong leaders in mitigation software to create an Enhanced Common Operating Picture and integrated ICS solution for responders in the City of Seattle,” said Ken McAllister, CEO of 4QTRS. “By combining these market-leading solutions, we significantly strengthen the efficiency of Seattle responders and address the needs of their innovative vision for a city-wide enhanced common operating picture.”
