|PSIM enables Safe Cities and Education facilities to realise the full potential of their security investment
CNL Software, a world leader in Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, will be exhibiting at ISC West Las Vegas April 10-12, 2013 - explaining how PSIM is enabling both Safe Cities and Education facilities to realise the full potential of their security investment by creating unified command centres and implementing joint response plans.
Ensuring the safety and security of students, staff, and visitors is key to the success and progress of any school or university. At the same time, Government agencies work hard to increase collaboration of public safety efforts; aiming to achieve better efficiency and effectiveness in leveraging public and privately owned security assets. Collaboration between Safe City security agencies and Education facilities provides these organisations with the vital intelligence needed for high levels of emergency preparedness and faster response to incidents, including those on educational campuses.
“Following a string of tragic incidents compromising campus security, PSIM is now not an option for our education facilities. It is the essential technology bridge tying together schools and first responders; cohesively providing critical information allowing informed decisions to be made more rapidly”, says Matthew Kushner, President - CNL Americas. “PSIM delivers the collaborative element required to deliver real-time situational awareness to first responders - a crucial aspect of school security initiatives being driven by City Mayors through the US today.” Kushner concludes, “Critical data, in the hands of the correct personnel at the required time saves lives”.
“We are already supporting leading Cities such as Washington DC, Atlanta and Manchester, UK, to leverage their security investments and reduce policing costs”, added Adlan Hussain, Global Head of Marketing. “We are now working to empower multi-agency operations including public and private collaborations; enabling cities to not only have real time situation awareness but to also use data analysis to effectively pre-empt and prevent crime.”
