RapidSOS Announces Partner Network for Distribution of Public-Safety Software
Tuesday, July 20, 2021 | Comments

RapidSOS introduced the RapidSOS Partner Network, a community of RapidSOS Ready public-safety software companies that deliver their product offerings through the RapidSOS Portal, a solution for emergency communication centers (ECCs) that provides critical data to 911 and first responders.

Public-safety technology companies can now seamlessly distribute their offerings across the fragmented North American 9-1-1 system, said Jessica Reed, vice president, strategy and global partnerships for RapidSOS. 9-1-1 and first responder agencies can now access public-safety technologies including drones, smart city systems, body cameras, building access controls and indoor maps all in one standardized platform.

The RapidSOS Partner Network expands on RapidSOS’s existing network of more than 40 public-safety software companies such as Motorola Solutions, Hexagon and CentralSquare that integrate with the RapidSOS emergency response data platform and RapidSOS Portal.

The RapidSOS Partner Network builds on this partner ecosystem and features 20 inaugural members, including 911eye, 911inform, Axon, CRG, DataTech911, Equature, Everbridge, Fugro, FIRST iZ powered by Genesis PULSE, GeoComm, Mark43, NextNav, NICE, NSION, One Hundred Feet, PublicSonar, Rave Mobile Safety, Roadside Telematics, SOMA Global and Zetron.

Built in partnership with the public-safety industry, the RapidSOS platform securely links life-saving data from more than 350-million connected devices to 9-1-1 and first responders in an emergency. The RapidSOS Partner Network is the next step in the platform’s evolution toward using technology to support first responders in their life-saving work.

“RapidSOS was built over the past eight years through partnerships with every major public safety software company and thousands of first responders,“ said RapidSOS co-founder and CEO Michael Martin. “I’m excited to expand on that work by allowing our partners to distribute best-in-class technologies directly into the existing software systems used by 9-1-1 agencies across North America.”

RapidSOS Partner Network members share in the company’s vision to empower safer, stronger communities with intelligent, data-driven emergency response worldwide. RapidSOS Partner Network members integrate their solutions with the RapidSOS Portal to distribute across RapidSOS’s network of more than 5,000 ECCs, build brand awareness, and leverage the company’s team of 9-1-1 experts to educate public safety agencies on their technologies.

“Many agencies already rely on both Axon and RapidSOS to manage emergency response,” said Axon Chief Product Officer and Executive Vice President (EVP) of Software, Jeff Kunins. “By enabling our solutions to work seamlessly together, we empower first responders with a single source for mission-critical information as well as the ability to deliver industry-leading tools for agencies to securely and more efficiently manage resources and thereby respond faster than ever.”

The network will first launch in the U.S. and launches in Mexico and Canada will then follow, Reed said.
