An automated process like what On The Grid offers will ensure we are prepared for the scale and complexity of the volunteer efforts for the Super Bowl. The automation will help mitigate the risk of certain situations such as weather or volunteer attrition.
(PRWEB) October 31, 2011
As the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee prepares to host the big game in Indianapolis next February, weather preparedness is a key area of focus. On The Grid Communications, a communications management and volunteer scheduling software offered by Indianapolis based, BitWise Solutions, Inc., will provide key technology as part of the overall volunteer management. This technology will assist with changes in volunteer deployment plans due to weather, event schedules, traffic and parking issues, or other unforeseen circumstances.
On The Grid Communications is an emergency communications platform enabling its clients to combine all means of communication (telecommunications, text messaging, Internet, email, etc.) to facilitate immediate interaction with the right people at the right time. “This is the first initiative of its kind utilizing the level of communications software that On The Grid Communications provides. Should a major weather event play a factor in the preparation and execution of the Super Bowl, the Committee will be able to instantly communicate with the 8,000 volunteers who will be available to help in whatever way necessary to ensure the event is a success,” said Ron Brumbarger, President and CEO of BitWise Solutions.
Sheila Bradley, Director of Volunteer Services for the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee added, “An automated process like what On The Grid offers will ensure we are prepared for the scale and complexity of the volunteer efforts for the Super Bowl. The automation will help mitigate the risk of certain situations such as weather or volunteer attrition.”
On The Grid Communications recognizes when there is a need for volunteers and will automatically communicate with volunteers to decipher their availability and intelligently fill gaps in the schedule based on the credentials of the volunteers needed. Additionally, the system will allow instantaneous communications with the volunteers during the Super Bowl in the event of an emergency or if more volunteers are needed in real time.
