Madison, CT (PRWEB) October 8, 2010
PowerPhone, Inc., a leading provider of 911 call handling systems, announced today that the Connecticut Technology Council has named the company a “2010 Company to Watch,” as well as awarding their flagship product, CACH®, “The Most Promising Software Product of the Year.”
Chosen from more than 100 nominees from a variety of technology verticals, the honor was part of the 2010 Innovation Pipeline Awards, sponsored by the Connecticut Technology Council, the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, Inc., and Cantor Colburn LLP.
“We are honored and pleased to have been chosen to receive this award,” said Chris Salafia, president and CEO of PowerPhone. “Connecticut is a hotbed for research and development, and it is incredibly rewarding to be recognized for our efforts, especially among such an elite group of innovative companies.”
The embodiment of PowerPhone’s technology is a revolutionary software product called CACH® (Computer Aided Call Handling). CACH offers 911 operators the ability to provide localized protocols and pre-arrival instructions for a broad range of emergency call types including active shootings, domestic disturbances, chest pain and choking. Further, it gives 911 center managers and other stakeholders unprecedented insight into their emergency call handling operations. The company has been issued four U.S. patents pertaining to the technology with additional patents pending.
“The 911 industry is on the cusp of great innovation, and we are excited for what the future holds,” said Salafia, “not just for PowerPhone, but for improving the standard of care being provided to callers and responders across the nation. Technological advancements such as CACH will save more lives.”
CACH is a core component behind “One Number, One Protocol,” PowerPhone’s national initiative to bring greater consistency and simplicity to emergency call handling.
