What was the business problem?
Our product provides first responders – police, fire and paramedics – with critical building information via their smartphones. Giving first responders information on building layouts, exits, electrical shutoffs, and building contact information, just when they need it, helps them plan their approach and can save precious minutes in time-sensitive situations. We participated in a project competition sponsored by Defence Research Development Canada, and we were given the opportunity to pilot our product with the Prince Albert Police Service – a fantastic opportunity to get feedback from first responders and test our technology in a close-to-real-world environment. As part of this trial, the Prince Albert Police are using our technology for a two-year period.
