Dynamic information management is the future for a modern fire service if it wants to prepare for the full impact of budget cuts
(PRWEB UK) 15 June 2011
ACTIVE Solutions Europe Ltd, Bringing Data to Life, today announces the launch of CONNECT™ dedicated to improving Community Fire Safety and Technical Fire Safety in Fire and Rescue Services in the UK.
CONNECT™ changes everything in Community Fire Safety software and Technical Fire Safety. No longer do individual departments with separate workflow processes, and separate information systems need to remain independent from each other. Reduce the risk of missing vital pieces of information held in systems that are costly to run, inflexible, insecure and unable to integrate with each other. Dynamic information management is the future for a modern fire service if it wants to prepare for the full impact of budget cuts, stay ahead of the constantly changing demands within communities and local government and gain an holistic view of citizen interaction across multiple communication channels.
As the outcomes from the Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR) start to be felt all Fire Services in the UK need to start investing now to save later. ACTIVE Solutions Europe Ltd is responding to this need with CONNECT, which uses Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 as its platform to provide a single source of information that can replace multiple databases and systems from across key departments within the fire service, including Community Fire Safety, Technical Fire Safety, Fire Investigation and Operations.
Steve Ainsworth, CEO at ACTIVE Solutions said “ACTIVE has a wealth of experience within the public safety sector and CONNECT™ has been developed in response to our customers needs. Taking our knowledge and combining it with Microsoft technology we have created a single solution that will help Fire and Rescue Services save money and most importantly save lives”.
Invited by Microsoft to be one of their twelve high potential ISVs, ACTIVE has now developed the first cloud based solution dedicated solely to dynamically managing information within the UK Fire and Rescue Service. “Fire Services provide crucial and valuable services to protect communities around the world,” said Andrew Hawkins, director of Public Sector Solutions at Microsoft. “CONNECT offers an innovative way to help ensure these organizations have the tools they need to complete all the functions of a modern day fire service.”
