AtHoc's innovations in critical communications combined with Esri's advanced GIS mapping technology gives leaders who manage critical situations increased power to command over those incidents. Specifically, AtHoc customers will be able to rapidly alert recipients based on their location, track the position of users and analyze spatial data to help define the boundaries of an emergency area in real time. Customers' facilities and other information also can be uploaded on the map, which provides visibility that helps with managing any incidents that may affect personnel safety and business operations.

"The ArcGIS Platform provides actionable information through location analytics to enable rapid and accurate decision support, and this is even more valuable when rapidly delivered to the right people," said Russ Johnson, Esri Public Safety Director. "We are pleased to be working with AtHoc to support the critical mission of providing crisis communication during emergencies and disasters."

"AtHoc's partnership with Esri demonstrates our mission to help make the world safer," said Oded Shekel, AtHoc Vice President of Product Management. "It happens one innovation at a time, and the picture just got sharper."
