Bountiful, Utah (PRWEB) December 21, 2013
FATPOT Technologies, a leading provider of intelligent data sharing solutions for public safety agencies, announced the successful go-live of James City County and York County’s data sharing initiative. The involved agencies are now viewing regional calls for service as well as unit location and status in real time.
James City County and York County has planned for data interoperability for years and even secured a grant to help get it implemented. “FATPOT ‘s bi-directional CAD-to-CAD integration is very advanced,” said Jonathan Wesley, Chief Technology Officer and company co-founder. “Our patented technology provides all business rules and logic in the fusion core. This enables agencies to achieve operational efficiency by seeing the types of calls they want and need to know about. In these days of tight budgets, data sharing between dispatch systems has moved from 'nice to have' to 'need to have'.”
The operational CAD systems involved were deployed by two different service providers. FATPOT was able to work with Motorola and SunGard/OSSI, in their preferred data exchange format. Julie McKercher, Emergency Communications Director for James City County stated, “We are pleased that our stakeholders will be able to get the fastest police and fire response possible. Our goal to provide better coverage and quicker response times in emergencies will be realized with FATPOT data sharing solution.”
James City County is on the tidewater peninsula of Virginia and has a population of about 70,000. Neighboring York County has a population of about 66,000.
