Hexagon and FlowMSP partner to enhance incident pre-planning and response for fire departments
Huntsville, Alabama, 25, 2021
Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division today announced a new partnership with FlowMSP that will enable fire departments to better plan for and respond to incidents.
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 response while en route, arriving at the incident with strategy in place.
“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,” said 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.”
