Winston Salem, NC (PRWEB) March 17, 2008
Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) March 17, 2008 -- InterAct Public Safety Systems, a leading provider of homeland security and public safety software used by enterprise customers as well as local, state, national and international government agencies, has been awarded a Homeland Security Innovative Product Grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) to integrate existing InterAct products in to the InterAct NerveCenter. The grant will be a key part of InterAct's effort to commercialize NerveCenter, and help create 4 new jobs in Illinois over the next 2 years.
NerveCenter will combine InterAct911's cutting edge technology to create a system that allows public safety answering point administrators to monitor the status of equipment and physical assets with video, radar, GIS or RFID, freeing up that time to respond to other incidents as necessary. If an incident occurs, NerveCenter will create an alert and dispatch the appropriate personnel respond to the incident being reported. A report of the incident would also automatically be created in the NerveCenter.
The Illinois Homeland Security Market Innovative Product Grant, and Homeland Security Market Development Bureau (HSMD), are a key part of Illinois's effort to grow and attract the homeland security industry in Illinois. HSMD and its programs are projected to create 933 new, full-time, high-tech jobs and have leveraged $21,528,077 in private capital, having invested some $7,350,443 in public funds.
