TriTech Partners with Dane County for New Computer-Aided Dispatch
New computer-aided dispatch and mobile data system to facilitate efficient and effective communications and emergency response among its 85 agencies
TriTech Software Systems, a leading provider of public safety and medical transport solutions, announces that Dane County has signed a contract for its VisiCAD computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and VisiNet Mobile data solutions. TriTech will provide its state-of-the-art CAD and Mobile system to facilitate efficient and effective communications and emergency response to the citizens of Dane County, Wisconsin.
“A computer-aided dispatch system is the cornerstone of our communications center,” says Dane County Public Safety Communications Director John Dejung. “Our existing CAD system is over 20 years old, and our team is excited about implementing new technology which will modernize our center enabling us to improve the level of service we can provide to citizens of Dane County and our law enforcement, fire and emergency medical responders.”
The replacement of their CAD system was one of the recommendations of a 2009 audit conducted for the Dane County Board. After a thorough evaluation of proposals and demonstrations, a cross-functional team selected TriTech’s VisiCAD and VisiNet Mobile solutions. Both solutions feature a user-friendly interface that is easily configurable to suit law, fire and EMS agency preferences. The combined solution provides a comprehensive incident and unit management system that allows Dane County communicators to efficiently manage their service area, incidents and resources to make informed and timely decisions.
“The user acceptability of VisiCAD solution was a key component in our selection process. With the large number and variety of agencies that our communicators serve, our review team was able to see how the new system, which features dynamic unit recommendations and advanced dispatch logic, would help them do things better and make their jobs easier,” added Dejung.
“We recognize the pressure that many counties and municipalities are experiencing - increased service demands, full accountability, limited resources,” says Chris Maloney, president and CEO of TriTech Software Systems. “Our VisiCAD and VisiNet Mobile solutions have been proven to improve response times and enhance operational efficiency for call-takers, dispatchers, and field personnel. As a technology provider, we strongly value our role in improving public safety; and we look forward to our long partnership with Dane County helping them to improve the level of service they can provide to its citizens.”
