Ideation revolutionizes Fire Service Control through Analytics

/ / news

Eyezeon Technologies Ltd is a UK based company in which Ideation TS is a major shareholder. In September 2016 Eyezeon was awarded the contract by Avon Fire Rescue Service (Bristol, UK) to provide them with Eyezeon’s Commander 2.0 new multi-platform incident command system to replace Avon’s old legacy Vector Command IC application.

The three-year supply contract with Avon FRS included some custom development work that is still on-going though the first version of Commander 2.0 has recently been installed on the Avon FRS network and is scheduled to enter live operations for the Fire Rescue Service from March 2017.

The development of the Commander 2.0 IC software is undertaken by a dedicated team of Ideation software engineers working closely with Eyezeon management to ensure the design, functionality and build of Commander 2.0 meets the critical and demanding needs of the emergency services.

Commander 2.0 is a ground-breaking application for the emergency services, being multi-platform and can be used on any device from smartphones, tablets to desktop computers. It provides a feature rich tool set for incident commanders allowing all incident data to be viewed in real-time, this includes GPS tracking of assets and personnel, mapping overlays, specific site data, map annotations and integrated analytical risk assessment e-forms, with more features to come.

With all incident data captured each incident can be replayed and analyzed, with a full audit trail and reporting available, which was one key requirement from Avon FRS, who see Commander 2.0 as an application that can be widely adopted by all emergency services throughout the UK.

Eyezeon has received strong interest from 10 other UK Fire Rescue Services and future trials are already planned with both UK police forces and the UK’s military special forces who have a distinct interest in the new Eyezeon GEO indoor tracking solution, which is an add-on product to Commander 2.0.

Paul Biirchall Eyezeon’s CEO stated “Ideation TS have long been our development partner of choice, providing us with excellent quality of work, meeting every deadline in building our mission critical Commander 2.0 application that has already received great praise from Avon and other Fire Rescue Services in the UK and we look forward to building on this with sales worldwide”.
