InterAct Public Safety Systems Develops API for PowerPhone CACH Software
Integration between InterAct's computer aided dispatch (CAD) system and PowerPhone's Total Response computer aided call handling (CACH) software will enable 9-1-1 call takers and dispatchers to make better emergency response recommendations
Winston Salem, NC—InterAct Public Safety Systems, a leading provider of mission-critical public safety and homeland security solutions has announced the development of an interface that will allow its computer aided dispatch (CAD) system to communicate with PowerPhone's Total ResponseÂ® Computer Aided Call Handlingâ„¢ (CACH) software.
"This is an important step for both PowerPhone and InterAct," said Chris Salafia, president and CEO of PowerPhone. "Integrating CACH and InterAct CAD will provide our mutual clients with unrivaled sharing of incident specific information. Together, our systems will assist the dispatcher from the first call for help to incident resolution."
PowerPhone's Total Response software is designed to standardize the 9-1-1 information gathering process. With the interface to InterAct CAD, Total Response will be able to pass objective dispatch recommendations on to CAD, as well as append specific call details directly to the incident record.
Both companies will be exhibiting at the APCO International Conference and Expo in Kansas City, MO August 4 - 6, 2008. InterAct Public Safety Systems will be in Booth 2130 and PowerPhone in Booth 1816.
