The AtHoc IWS Suite Enables:

  • A nurse to activate a one-click, geo-tagged emergency alert from her smartphone and receive immediate help at her location.
  • An operations center to view an event via rich media — photos, audio, video, texts, and maps — from hundreds of employees and field personnel to assess an unfolding event.
  • Emergency managers to send maps of cordoned areas to security forces and forward evacuation routes to affected personnel.
  • A base commander to account for all personnel and view base status in detail, following an emergency.

The AtHoc IWS Suite provides the organization with

Enabling every person to report and receive rich event information for critical safety decisions.

Providing a universal view into events, people, and organizational status via rich media for an informed situation response.

Powering instant, multi-modal bidirectional mass communication to reach everyone with actionable safety information.

Accounting for all personnel via real-time aggregation of their location and status, and providing tools for visibility, status, and follow-up actions.


The AtHoc Advantage

An integrated system enabling the flow of critical information among all parties for situation assessment and guidance across the organization, and account for all personnel, going beyond voice and traditional methods.

The AtHoc mobile application (for iOS and Android platforms) combines the AtHoc solution with mobile devices, empowering emergency managers and first responders to launch 2-way mass or targeted alerts from anywhere, at any time, and send geo-tagged responses with rich media attachments (video, photos, voice, text, maps) from the center of the crisis directly to emergency managers.

A single web-based console brings modern IP-based and traditional non-IP alert devices together for unified, rapid, and redundant communications.

Secure, scalable and flexible deployment architectures, supporting a centralized enterprise: a secure private cloud, a secure public cloud; or hybrid architecture, to support large, widely dispersed organizations while accommodating the alerting needs of each location, group, or select individuals.

Deployed in the most challenging environments including warzones, highly secured facilities, chemical plants, and hospitals, AtHoc's proven solution has successfully managed extensive crises throughout the world.
