There is a mistaken assumption that sophisticated crisis management software, such as WebEOC, is widely used in Europe, but that is not the case. We are looking forward to changing this in the months and years ahead.

Intermedix will formalise its UK debut as a sponsor of this year’s Ambition EPRR Expo, the Emergency Preparedness Resilience & Response event at Olympia in London. The global provider of technology-enabled solutions to emergency services and health care professionals will showcase its offerings from 19-20 April, at the world class Ambition Expo.
Ambition delegates will get the first UK demonstration of WebEOC, the key software solution from Intermedix, and the platform on which the company aims to develop its presence in the European market. Ambition is a key event for those involved in worldwide emergency preparedness and an interest in the EPRR community generally. It is the venue to see the very latest technology and discuss the most pressing topics faced by the industry today. All reasons for Intermedix to attend in 2016.
“Our attendance at Ambition is another key plank in our expansion plans. As our European operations are based here in Reading, this is the event we’ve been waiting for,” said Intermedix CEO, Joel Portice, who will be attending the event. “Emergency services in the UK and Europe have a hard-earned reputation for excellence, but we’re all well aware of the complex challenges faced by these services, both within the Inner Cordon and working in civil contingencies. Intermedix has answers to many of these challenges,” added Portice.
Ambition 2016 is aligned with the National Resilience capabilities Programme and the National Respond and Rescue Strategy supported by the Cabinet Office. Major incident scenarios are likely to be high on the agenda, and the Intermedix team will be ready to discuss the firm’s solutions with policymakers and operational managers.
WebEOC is the ultimate crisis management tool in the industry. Used in more than 25 countries worldwide, WebEOC is the first choice for those working in crisis management. Trusted by federal and local government agencies in the US, WebEOC has been at the heart of managing a host of significant events, from President Obama’s Inauguration to major disasters like Hurricane Irene in 2015 and the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.
“Intermedix is a byword in the US for technology-driven solutions, and our goal is to bring our know-how and innovative software to the European market,” said Portice. “There is a mistaken assumption that sophisticated crisis management software, such as WebEOC, is widely used in Europe, but that is not the case. We are looking forward to changing this in the months and years ahead.”
WebEOC is a fully integrated control hub, enabling all partner agencies involved in an incident to make informed decisions fast, based on real time evidence. Providing all Category 1 responders (fire, police and ambulance services) with the means to share live information from an incident allows for unrivalled cooperation so essential in saving lives when a major incident is in progress. The reliability and unrivalled functionality of WebEOC continues to make it the mainstay of civil contingency and emergency resilience and response.
“WebEOC has been the go to incident management solution for more than ten years,” said Joel Portice. “When people see it in action, to say they are impressed is an understatement. The latest upgrade of WebEOC represents the next generation in emergency response, and we need to give policymakers and the wider industry in Europe the opportunity to see the benefits for themselves. The Ambition EPRR Expo is a great place to start,” concluded Portice.
