Austin, Texas, Sept. 6, 2017 — VuTeur, an innovator in emergency management and business intelligence platforms, today announced that it has been awarded Security Today’s 2017 New Product of the Year Award for its Emergency Response and Asset Protection Platform.
The annual award program honors the outstanding technology achievements of security equipment manufacturers whose products are considered particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve security. VuTeur was selected as the top entry in the Emergency Communications Systems category for its ability to deliver two-way communication in real-time through mobile devices within a facility, streamline crisis response and elevate a security team’s situational awareness during an incident.
The VuTeur platform allows users to gain valuable intelligence by using real-time location system (RTLS) technologies embedded within modern mobile and smart devices to power two-way communication with individuals during an incident or event. VuTeur uses existing Wi-Fi connectivity to communicate directly with mobile users within a facility, allowing a user’s location to be visualized on a map of the facility and reported to operators and responders. This information provides a complete picture of which individuals are at most risk. The best course of action can then be determined and responses can be prioritized according to specific needs. For example, those individuals located closer to a severe weather event can be rescued first while those located in “safe zones” can be deprioritized.
“With the growth of connected devices, there is increased demand for new and innovative ways to address real-time communication in the event of an emergency using this technology,” said Jana Rankin, CEO, VuTeur. “VuTeur’s platform is designed to deliver streamlined incident response while also allowing first responders a look at the events taking place in and around an incident in an effort to gain more insight. More than that, this kind of technology has the potential to deliver even more results by improving internal communications, managing investigations and incidents, limiting liability and managing secure access to facilities. We are honored that our product was recognized as one of the best this year.”
VuTeur will showcase its award-winning solution during the 2017 ASIS International Seminar and Exhibits Sept. 25-28, in Dallas, at Booth #933. See all of VuTeur’s events during ASIS 2017 here and schedule a meeting.
