Emergency Plus™ Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) is a high end solution for single or multi-agency operation. It bridges the communication gap between dispatch and the field, and ensures the continual availability of data for immediate sharing of incident information, patient data, and criminal records. It provides a real-time link between agencies, with flexibility and user-friendly features that enable each agency to configure the system to meet their needs, yet jointly respond to events while retaining their individual requirements.

Emergency Plus CAD takes away the guesswork of unit recommendations and location through the following innovative features:

Automatic Vehicle Location with Routing
Emergency response units use Global Positioning System (GPS) equipment to track and automatically report their positions to the dispatchers. CAD mapping workstations use position information to recommend the closet unit to an incident

Street Based Unit Recommendations
CAD provides a sophisticated unit recommendation algorithm to determine planned and AVL routing information along the street map.

Emergency Plus was developed in 1982 and has grown with many leading edge features.
