SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 16, 2013) - Tiburon, Inc., a portfolio company of The Gores Group and the leading provider of public safety software solutions, today announced it will be showcasing Tiburon Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) with Intrado's revolutionary new intelligence and awareness solution, Beware(SM) in Booth #1255 at next week's APCO International Conference and Expo.
Intrado Beware is the most comprehensive and accessible incident intelligence tool in public safety and provides responders with fast access to relevant information critical for a more prepared, more confident and safer response to a potentially dangerous situation. Beware uses a patent-pending, web-search algorithm to scan massive amounts of publicly available data and presents it as actionable intelligence, complete with threat scores in an easy-to-read headline format-all within seconds of an initial query.
Integrated with Tiburon CAD, Beware provides Beware Statements in the form of alerts to call-takers, dispatchers, and responders using the CAD system or Mobile data. Accessed through any browser (fixed or mobile) on any Internet-enabled device including tablets, smartphones, laptop and desktop computers, Beware searches, sorts and scores billions of commercial and publicly available court records in a matter of seconds-alerting responders to potentially deadly and dangerous situations while en route to, or at the location of a call.
"We are proud to partner with Intrado to offer an affordable and transformative incident intelligence solution for improving law enforcement and public safety. The possibilities are endless for eliminating regional and jurisdictional boundaries to help prevent and fight crime," said Cliff Micham, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Tiburon. "Tiburon's thought leadership in technology innovation is not only about improving our core and ancillary solutions, but also strengthening our partnerships to offer clients a new service-solution framework that not only revolutionizes their capabilities but also reduces their costs."
"Tiburon is a highly regarded CAD industry leader and valued partner. Traditionally, first responders, call takers and dispatchers rely on local, state and federal records management databases as their main source for person, vehicle and other information. Beware provides access to massive amounts of commercial data not previously available to them," said Steve Lowe, Senior Vice President/General Manager, Intrado. "Beware is unique in that it searches billions of commercial data points; scores the results for potential threats; and presents the data as informational headlines a responder can use to make a difference in the outcome of a situation."
