HUNTSVILLE, Ala., March 17, 2015 – Intergraph®, a global leader in public safety solutions, and Esri®, a global leader in GIS technology, are collaborating to enhance geospatial capabilities for public safety and security agencies. Through the collaboration, the companies will work to more tightly align Intergraph’s Computer-Aided Dispatch system, I/CAD, and Esri’s ArcGIS® Platform.
CAD and GIS are essential to public safety and incident management. Together, call-taking and dispatch software, maps and spatial data provide agencies with the information they need to provide for and protect the public. Solutions that work cohesively enable agencies to do their jobs quicker and more efficiently.
“The collaboration between Intergraph and Esri will drive productivity and efficiency improvements for users of both systems,” said Kalyn Sims, vice president for public safety products, Intergraph Security, Government and Infrastructure. “We’re committed to delivering flexible options for our customers and look forward to working with Esri to benefit public safety and security agencies globally.”
As a first step in the collaboration, Intergraph will introduce I/Map Editor™ for ArcGIS®, a new product that works directly with ArcGIS for map production in I/CAD, creating greater workflow efficiencies for users of both systems. The product will be available in the second quarter of 2015.
“Esri is pleased that Intergraph has chosen to enable its computer-aided dispatch solution to work more directly with our ArcGIS Platform,” said Russ Johnson, public safety director, Esri. “The combined solution will benefit the computer-aided dispatch market, the public safety GIS community, and citizens around the globe.”
