Hall County Public Safety Chooses Tiburon to Go to the CloudHall County Able to Reduce Costs Without Reducing Services to the Community (November 17, 2011)
HALL COUNTY, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/17/11 -- Hall County, Georgia Public Safety completed their cutover this week to Tiburon's DispatchNow computer assisted dispatching (CAD) and mobile software solution. Hall County chose the secure cloud computing version of DispatchNow software to take advantage of the trend that is sweeping public and private sector IT. By moving to the cloud, Hall County will be able to reduce their overall costs without reducing the level of service they provide to the community.
Hall County, with a 2010 population of approximately 180,000, is in northeast Georgia with its County seat located in Gainesville. Hall County Public Safety is the public safety answering point (PSAP) for the County including Gainesville and seven surrounding towns. Public Safety is responsible for multi-agency dispatching for law enforcement, fire and EMS resources and the dispatch center has 16 CAD positions and supports 68 mobile computers deployed by various law enforcement agencies across the County. The mobile computers are equipped with DispatchNow's mobile software including its automatic vehicle location (AVL) feature which allows dispatchers to track cruisers and other units on a map in real time -- allowing them to dispatch the closest units to an incident and increasing officer safety at the same time.
"Hall County is to be commended for bringing the benefits of cloud computing to Public Safety. They have taken a leadership position on this technology trend that is literally redefining how organizations accomplish their information technology goals," commented Michael Bealmear, Tiburon's CEO. "Tiburon is delighted to be able to provide them with software solutions that gives the County increased flexibility without increased spending -- particularly in this day and age when municipal and state governments are struggling to maximize precious resources."
